Role based in Kampala, Uganda (one of the safest, largest, and most developed cities in Africa)
Start date: October 2016
Motorcycle taxis are immensely popular and serve as the lifeblood of many cities in Africa, but they are extremely unsafe and disorganized. SafeBoda is a pre-series A Ugandan-based tech startup on a mission to make motorcycle taxis (bodas) more safe, affordable, and convenient across Sub-Saharan Africa—while providing a more meaningful and lucrative career for drivers. And we think we have a shot to build a very valuable tech company in the process.
You’re a rockstar full-stack engineer with strong experience developing beautiful and intuitive mobile user interfaces and the backend to power them. You have a passion for making simple, delightful products that solve everyday problems for consumers. You love technology, but also design, business, and understanding the customer. You have confidence that you can solve any problem (technical or not) that is handed to you.
You’re ready for an international startup adventure and can dedicate significant time to helping it succeed; you have the hustle needed to make things happen in a challenging context. You’re excited about working for a social-focused, for-profit company and laying the foundations of the tech industry in Uganda.
Most importantly, you find meaning in developing others. You love seeing those you mentor reach their goals.
