Senior Full-stack Software Developer

Nairobi, Nairobi County, Kenya · Technology

Description

About us

Pawame provides solar home systems (SHSs) and more to off-grid communities in Africa on a rent-to-own basis. Starting from our base in Kenya we are tackling the huge challenge (opportunity!) to electrify and serve the >160 million households (70% of the population) in sub-Saharan Africa that don’t have access to grid power. Our SHS is not just cheaper, cleaner, and more convenient than traditional solutions, it's transformation: by the time our customers have paid off their systems (after about 18 months) we are able -- using technology, proprietary credit scoring and innovative payment schemes -- to profitably offer them an array of life changing products and services that they would not otherwise be able to access or afford. Ultimately we aim to be not just an energy access company but a leading provider of products and services to the 'bottom of the pyramid', a trusted life partner for our customers, and one of the most respected consumer brands in Africa.


About the role

As a Senior Software developer of Pawame, you’ll work closely with a small team of software developers to build, customize and integrate new software applications for our company. The job will also include updating existing systems and integrating improvements to work on the user interfaces already in operation. You shall be both a thought leader to the CIO, and the link between all the cross-functional software development projects to ensure seamless implementation.
