Location: Mombasa Rd, Nairobi


Moko Home + Living is a growing company bursting with innovation, creativity and passion. Our customers dream of a better night’s sleep, a welcoming place to host their guests, a fun and safe place for their children to play.

But they tell us this isn’t easy – they have to settle for low-quality furnishings or break the bank. Join us in building the products, the brand and the network to put quality living within everyone’s reach. Here’s what our team has accomplished in the few years since our founding:

  • Reached over 100,000 Kenyan homes with our products

  • Grown from a start-up to mid-sized company


We’re looking for an efficient, analytical accounting professional to play a key support role in our finance team. You’ll have a gift for turning the accounting data from streams of invoices and bank transactions into accurate summaries to support decision-making.

You’ll be a sticker for policy and procedure while still embodying the supportive team spirit that makes Moko tick.
