by experienced local and international investors. We have a product that will
be used by millions of customers locally and an investor appetite that will see
us expand rapidly overseas.

deployment (supported by git-pushes to production in the cloud).

·
You
enjoy being a part of a leadership team that understands product/market fit,
the power of a great UX and elegant UIs, the openness of decision-making backed
by metrics. Perhaps you’re even a fan of Eric Ries’ Lean Startup principles
(like us!)

You
will collaborate to design, prototype, implement and iteratively improve a set
of web (and later mobile) products.

speed and debt.

problems that demand your best thinking

·
An
opportunity to work with a rapidly expanding business and a service used by
