Summary

Who we are

Jembi is a not-for-profit tech company that develops software to improve health outcomes in low resource settings. We are active in a number of countries in Africa, most notably South Africa, Rwanda, Mozambique, Zambia, Uganda and Lesotho. We work with Ministries of Health and other NGOs to architect and build information systems and infrastructure that improve the lives of millions of people.

We are an agile, tight knit group of developers and HIS experts driven by a common goal. The technology team consists of 25 devs, business analysts, and product owners and managers, almost all exclusively based at our Cape Town head office.

Our Culture

We like JavaScript (NodeJS, Angular, React, etc.), Enterprise Java, C#. MongoDB and PostgreSQL are our favourite databases, but we use MSSQL Server and MySQL as well (and a bit of neo4j). Most of our code is open source (check us out at https://github.com/jembi), and we run tight-knit, awesome agile teams consisting of 4-8 developers. The devs each have particular skills: 5 have master’s degrees in computer science, and have worked at web-scale companies like MySpace and Quantcast. We run our sprints using JIRA

Other tools: Ansible, Docker, Vagrant, Jenkins, Travis and lots and lots of EC2 and Digital Ocean VMs

We do work for Ministries of Health all over Africa (South Africa, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Uganda), and partner with international organisations like MSF, the Rockefeller Foundation, UNICEF, CHAI, MSH, CDC and USAID to provide software solutions to improve health outcomes in low resource settings.

Applicants must have a strong background in computer science and experience working on enterprise software systems. They should be self-motivated, hardworking, and keen to learn and be interested in public healthcare. These positions come with the opportunity to travel internationally and attend relevant conferences and implement our software solutions on the ground around the world.

Our Hiring Process

We want passionate, motivated and intelligent engineers on our team. Usually we'll have a 15 minute 'get to know each other' phone call, followed by a technical interview, and then a short, informal management/HR interview. We like to move quickly.
