Hello, my name is Demissew Melese. I’m a self-thought full stack developer from Ethiopia. I studied Mechanical Engineering at Addis Ababa University and Marine Engineering at MERI Kolkata, India.

I co-founded a small company here in Ethiopia that specializes in providing online solutions to businesses and consumers. Since the establishment of the company, I have been responsible for everything technical that goes on in the company. My responsibilities include provisioning new servers and maintain existing ones (online or locally at our offices), research, plan, develop and maintain web apps (consumer-facing and internal apps used by our staff), develop mobile apps, train our staff when necessary, and occasional online marketing and SEO.

Our flagship website is called 2merkato.com. The website was started as a hobby by me and my business partner to solve issues faced by many businesses in Ethiopia in accessing the right kind of information that helps them run their business smoothly and grow their company. One of the most popular services we provide is called 2merkato Tenders.

We recently started exploring opportunities in the consumer market space with a new food delivery/local listing mobile app named Megbia. We also provide free service in the building and construction market space through our website named 2merkato Construction and its complementary mobile app. The website along with the mobile app provides a much-needed construction material price update in Addis Ababa to individual home builders or commercial contractors on a weekly and monthly basis.

The parent company, eBiz Online Solutions PLC, now employs dozens of young Ethiopians and serves thousands of local and foreign companies.
