Nigerian software engineer Adebimpe Daniells makes SWE’s 2024 Engineers You Should Know

Software engineer Adebimpe Daniells

A senior solutions architect at Amazon Web Services in the company’s worldwide customer services private equity organisation Adebimpe Daniells has been listed in the 2024 engineers you should know put together by the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).

Daniells made the list alongside 14 others. The other Nigerian on the list is Ogechi Nwadiaru.

The SWE series celebrates exceptionally accomplished women engineers who have demonstrated a commitment to creating opportunities for others.

Daniells has partnered with private equity firms to develop technical strategies. This move has enhanced investment growth and fostered innovative practices for her employer.

Her expertise in cloud migration, modernization, and deployment of machine learning and AI enables her to align technological solutions with business objectives. As a result, she received this year’s Amazon Web Services Technology Innovator Award, citing her pioneering use of the company’s technologies to solve real-world problems.

In a message shared on social media on Tuesday, Daniells wrote, “I just received an award from the Society of Women Engineers as one of the 2024 Engineers You Should Know.

“I bring gratitude to my God and Creator. Indeed, the best is yet to come!”

Daniells is active in Amazon’s Black Employee Network Nigeria affinity group, particularly in overseeing global community engagement. Committed to literacy empowerment and STEM advocacy for women and girls — especially black girls — Daniells is involved in the Amazon Hour of Code and often speaks at conferences and on panels. In addition, she established the Aqua Foundation, which promotes smart farming and sustainable development by linking solutions with funding.

Serendipity, Daniells’s recently published memoir, tells the story of growing up in a large family in Nigeria; her encounters with gender inequality; how she learned to cope with sickle cell anaemia, a debilitating chronic illness; and how she turned her dream of becoming an engineer into reality.

Her thirst for learning led her to pursue an education abroad, earning an associate degree in computer programming and analysis from Seneca Polytechnic in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and later a B.A. in information systems from Rutgers University-Newark. She authored the book to show women all over the world that they can overcome barriers and realise their ambitions.
