Senior Systems Reliability Engineer

Location: Nairobi, Nairobi County, Kenya

We believe that Africa does better when everyone has room to grow and thrive. No one should be left out because the distance between seeing an opportunity and making a living from it is too great.

We started by delivering small packages but haven’t stopped there. Today, we’re empowering businesses to send raw materials to their production facilities and finished goods to their customers. We’re helping small scale farmers get their produce to the market. We’re making it possible for the hardworking delivery driver to earn a decent living.

We are here to make it easy to trade in Africa so that everyone has room to grow. Join us.
