SafeMotos FullStack Developer Job in Kigali, Rwanda

Duma Works is recruiting a FullStack developer for SafeMotos in Kigali, Rwanda.

SafeMotos is a safer Uber for Africa’s motorcycle taxis.  

We are using technology to revolutionize transport in the developing world. 
We use a smartphone’s accelerometer, gyroscope and GPS chip to determine whether a motorcycle taxi driver is more safe or less safe than average, then let customers order safer drivers through a smartphone app

We’re looking for a talented new programmer to join our team.
If this is you, you will be working full-time in our Kigali office as part of our dev team. 
As our latest tech team hire, you’ll be part of the team taking on our next set of design and engineering challenges focusing on new applications we have in the pipeline.

Engineering jobs at SafeMotos aren’t just about coding. As a member of our dev team you will design, build, test, deploy, maintain and support our users in all the features of our platform and tooling. 

We’re especially excited to hear from you if you have:
  • Experience in formal software QA and testing, both manual and automated
  • A keen eye for design, and experience in designing for or implementing modern, dynamic web-apps
  • Strong architecture chops. You know how to build highly scalable, robust, and fault-tolerant services that support high growth requirements. You stay up-to-date with the latest architectural trends
  • Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you’d never call code “released” until you’re confident it’s correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, strong documentation, and proper test coverage.
  • Design and business acumen. You understand requirements beyond the written word and your attention to details leads to a delightful user experience.
  • Fearlessness. You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point. You strive on proving that speed and quality are not conflicting; that you can achieve both at the same time.

We’re looking for a full stack engineer, experienced in both front- and back-end work.

As a minimum, we expect you will be proficient in:
  • Experience designing and implementing core user facing features in mobile and web applications
  • Strong track record of shipping high-quality product features.
  • Strong expertise in full stack development (Javascript, NodeJS/Python, Angular, Web sockets, HTML, CSS)
  • Knowledge of the principles of accessibility and ability to design usable user experiences is a plus
  • Databases (MongoDB, Elastic)
  • Proficient in Git.
  • Experience working for a start up.
We don’t expect everyone to know all the tools we use from the get-go, but it would be very convenient to both of us if you are proficient in, or at least excited to learn:
  • Server-side Javascript with NodeJS.
  • Android/iOS development.
  • Scrum and related Agile processes.
Even more reasons to come and join!
  • We’re a small team mostly based in Kigali, the developer role is based full time in our Kigali office
  • The rare opportunity to change the world such that everyone around you is using the product you built. We’re moving real people, one safe ride at a time.
  • Employees have free rides with SafeMotos
  • Sharp, motivated co-workers in a fun office environment.
  • Flexible working hours based around common sense and your out of work needs
  • We work hard together, and you’ll have always have the invite to join lunches, happy hours, and off-site adventures – or not, as works for you
  • Competitive (commensurate with your experience) salary and generous annual leave allowance
  • Stock options available for highly qualified candidates
  • We are an exciting startup, Google us!
