Job Summary

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, find 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 contribute to 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 more than 3 million users have heard our call – as well as hundreds 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 strives to be the most sophisticated career platform around. Our technology team has applied advanced data analysis and machine learning for providing personalized recommendations to our users. We also try to provide a stellar user experience to our users, regardless of whether they use low end feature phones, tablets or desktops. Challenging? Yes, but we are ready for it. Are you?

We are accelerating our growth and need to beef up our tech team in Kenya. To succeed, we are now looking for a highly motivated go-getter:



In your job, you will:

  1. Develop the Fuzu backend (Ruby on Rails, Python) service and do some work on frontend (HTML5/JS/CSS) of www.fuzu.complatform together with the support of our product management and design teams
  2. Take part in the design process of new features and optimizations
  3. Monitor performance of the platform through data analytics (Google Analytics, DB, various sub-systems)
  4. Participate in the Fuzu DevOps process (Heroku/AWS)
  5. Work in a highly international environment, working closely both with our Kenyan and Finnish teams
  6. Maintain continuous dialogue with business and design, ensuring clear development roadmap and prioritization
  7. Ensure that your work is efficient, fast and predictable, and that the quality of technical implementation is world-class

You have 3-5 years of experience in backend development using modern technologies and languages such as Ruby on Rails, Python or JavaScript and have basic understanding of frontend development (HTML5/JS/CSS). You are knowledgeable in test driven development and appreciate continuous integration and frequent deployments. 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 and write fluent English.
