Kingsley is a talented software engineer who has worked with us remotely for several years, Skyping occasionally, but communicating mainly by text.

When we met Kingsley in person in his home town of Lagos, it was like reconnecting with an old friend, and we started sharing stories and laughs immediately.

He was kind enough to welcome him into his home to meet his wife and child... only to reveal to us a very funny story... Around two years ago, when we hired Kingsley, we invited him to a 2nd round technical interview, asking him if the date and time we proposed was suitable. He was so keen to make a good impression, that he didn't bother to mention that that particular day was his wedding day, and he Skyped us between his service and evening reception!

We were told his wife still doesn't know, so we kept this story to ourselves as we enjoyed a delicious home-cooked meal with his family!
