FullStack developer for SafeMotos


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.

Responsibilities

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:

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

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.
Requirements

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.
