Technical Lead

Job Type
Full time
Required Skills:


Do you want to make a difference in this little world of ours? We do.
We are Fuzu - a Finnish-Kenyan company that develops career guidance, online
learning and recruitment services for the emerging markets. We help people to
take the next step in life, get inspiration and unleash their hidden potential.

Are you a technologist who is passionate about new online and mobile
services that deliver delightful user experiences? Are you ready to get your
hands dirty and take responsibility for developing and running a world-class
digital marketplace? And change the world for the better, just by doing what
you do best.

Fuzu service was launched in Kenya in September 2015 and since then
nearly 200 000 users have heard our call – as well as dozens of Kenyan
companies who need new staff or wish to train their employees. Both our end-users
and job seekers love the platform, even as we have only scratched the surface
of what is possible.

Fuzu is not your typical classifieds platform, but combines advanced
algorithms, complex data-models, plethora of payment gateways and caters for a
very heterogeneous set of terminals, from low end feature phones to tablets and
desktops. All this over intermittent and patchy internet connectivity.
Challenging? Yes, but we are ready for it. Are you?

We just closed our latest funding round and are now gearing up for
rapid scale-up in African and Asian markets. To succeed, we are now looking for
a highly motivated go-getter:



In your job, you will:

- Oversee the daily operations of one of our
feature development cells

- Maintain continuous dialogue with business and
design, ensuring clear development roadmap for your cell

- Ensure that your team’s development work is
efficient, fast and predictable, and that the quality of technical
implementation is world-class

- Ensure that your deliverables are robust and

- Act as the supervisor to your development cell,
coaching your team members to become even more professional and experienced in
their work

- Take part in technical design, algorithm creation
and UX design work as a technical expert

You have experience in various modern technologies and languages such
Ruby, Python, Golang, Postgres, AWS etc. You are test driven and love
continuous integration and deployment. You can alternatively be a demonstrably
fast learner yearning for new technical challenges. You enjoy working in a
dynamic, fast-paced, entrepreneurial and international team and can bring
on-board structured and analytical thinking, can-do attitude and execution that
exceeds expectations. You speak fluent English and hopefully some Finnish too.
