Software Engineering Intern
Location: Nairobi, Kenya
Start Date: Immediately
Full-time


We’re on a mission to elevate the careers and livelihoods of millions of blue collar professionals, artisans, and other informal workers through the use of technology. Join us.

You:

As an engineering intern you have recently finished college, maybe gotten your first work experience and are excited as ever to learn the tools of the trade. You spend your days coding and your nights reading about code. You regularly get into heated debates with your peers about which technology, language or framework is best but you are also beginning to understand that it is typically not as simple as that and that different tools are good for different tasks.

You’ll be responsible for:

  • Helping us build out frontend entities on various platforms and frameworks (angular, ionic, backbone, django)
  • Writing solid and testable backend code
  • Finding smart solutions to the many real world problems we face

Successful candidates will have all or most of these qualifications: 

  • Show us why they are suited for this position, rather than just tell us
  • Fluent English
  • Good knowledge in at least one server based language like e.g. Java, Python, C#, PHP, Clojure or others
  • Good understanding of SQL
  • Javascript on server and client
  • Able to fit into a fun and outgoing work environment
  • Understanding of Linux/Unix
