#Humans of Sudo: Meet the Sudo Team

At Sudo, we believe that behind every successful company is a team of talented and diverse individuals, and that is exactly what you'll find in our team of 26 unique individuals working across our offices in Abuja, Lagos, and Kaduna. We are a group of people working together to drive innovation and growth in the card-issuing industry.

Meet Our Founders: Aminu Bakori and Kabir Shittu

The Sudo journey began in 2017 when Aminu Bakori and Kabir Shittu developed Payant, an app that enabled Nigerian freelancers to receive payments globally. In response to consumer demands, they developed the Dot application that allowed users to link all their bank accounts into a single app and have one card to use across the accounts. However, the biggest challenge was issuing the card. So, in 2020, they built an infrastructure for businesses in Africa to issue cards regardless of their main product or service.

Our Engineering Team: The Masterminds Behind Our Products

Headed by Aminu Bakori, our engineering team is responsible for designing, developing, and maintaining Sudo's products, including Root by Sudo, Sudo Dashboard, and Sudo API. The team comprises of our product designers, backend engineers, frontend engineers and full stack web developers, all working together to ensure that our products are reliable, scalable and secure.
