What’s the job?
We are looking for a Lead software developer to join our team in providing solar energy for rural homes of sub-Saharan Africa. We make management software that allowed us to give electricity to more than 30,000 people (mainly Tanzania and Uganda), adding over a several thousands more every month.
The software is a specialized ERP and microfinance tool that gives super-powers to agents on the ground and automate a lot of the necessary tasks to allow clients to get electricity or other life changing services on a “pay as you go” basis, meaning that they pay small installments that they can afford.
We are looking for: Smart people ... who are software engineers with more than 5 years of experience ... that follow good practices and Agile principles ... who are independent ... who can lead the technical team ... and work well with others
Requirements: A & B & C
A = You should have experience in Software architecture, Agile, TDD and Testing and it would be great if you can do Python, UI/UX or data mining.
B = You have some practical database design experience. If you have experience in DevOps and know some of the technologies we use (Flask, Docker and Postgres), that’s even better.
If you’re missing some of that and think you still have the chops, we say go for it.
What’s the deal?
You’ll need to be willing to move to Valencia, Spain. Our office is 5 min from the beach, which we think is pretty cool. We offer a competitive salary based on your experience and skills.
In addition, we consider that life-work balance is important (and that some days you might be sleepy!!!) and thus you can choose which schedule fits you best (it is flexible, but you can take these as examples): Southern hours: 10 am to 19 pm with 1h lunch break Nordic hours: 8 am to 16:30 with 30min lunch break Weekender hours: 8 am to 17 with 30 minutes lunch break [Mon-Thu] and 8-14 on Fridays.
What about remote work? We believe that some days can be handy to be working from home when you are expecting a letter or a package or just because it is raining outside and thus we are flexible and allow remote work up to 2 days per week.
Still not convinced? We value that our employees are well educated and have knowledge about the latest technologies/trends and thus we provide some study time!!!
Send us a quick email ([email protected]) with your resume and tell us why you’re excited to join us.
