Job description

About the role

Maisha Meds is hiring! We’re looking for an experienced software engineer to improve health care in East Africa!

Our main product is an Android app that both operates as a point-of-sale tool and helps pharmacies manage their inventory and restock products. Our app is used by hundreds of pharmacies in Kenya and Tanzania to support hundreds of thousands of patients every year. We’re rapidly expanding our user base, and are planning on expanding to more countries in the future.

We also launched a loyalty program to help subsidize medicine for patients and reward pharmacists for better medical practices. We’ve helped thousands of patients in the past couple of months and we’re aiming to reach significantly more by this year.

What We’re Looking For

We’re entering an exciting new phase of our loyalty program and are looking for a strong lead. Not only are we collaborating with researchers, we’re aiming to expand this program to multiple countries this year! We would like the lead to scope the backend and web-based work and deliver on the project, with the support of the tech team.

We’re looking for an engineer (preferably experienced in Ruby on Rails) to collaborate with our tech team, lead development for new and exciting features.

The ideal candidate has:

  • 4+ years of building quality applications,
  • A history of writing clean and well-documented code with automated tests,
  • Experience building REST APIs,
  • Ability to scope large, abstract problems to small, concrete tasks
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to work well with a culturally diverse team (we’re a mix of Kenyans and international team members)
  • Experience building systems for environments with limited or intermittent Internet connectivity is a plus

Our preferred technology:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • React and Vue.js

Our headquarters is in Kisumu, on the shores of Lake Victoria. Many members of our organization are remote across Kenya and internationally, especially on the tech team. We were remote before COVID and we’d certainly be open to remote work afterwards. We would love to have you join us on-site in Kisumu (for a flexible amount of time) once it’s safe to travel again.

We’re a small, friendly team that values open communication and mentorship.
