Summary

What we do:

Globally, 2.5-billion people are underserved or excluded from the financial system; 80% of these people reside in Sub-Saharan Africa. JUMO believes technology provides the opportunity to connect everyone, everywhere with great choices and we are using the cloud to rebuild financial infrastructure. We use behavioural data to understand our customers and we create digital products that give them unprecedented empowerment and control over their own financial identity.

JUMO has more than five million customers with a further 150-million under integrated coverage in 2017 – our growth trajectory is steep therefore every person we hire is critically important for us to function as a high-performance scalable machine. A blueprint for our mission does not exist, thus we look for people who are growth-minded, curious and have a high tolerance for ambiguity and who can risk failure in striving for success.

What you'll be building

In principle, there is no ceiling to the tools and technologies we explore. In practice, you're likely to work on a Rails codebase, Ruby/Go microservices, various API serialization and data interchange formats including JSON and protocol buffers, various cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services and Heroku, queueing technologies, building dev & helper tools and generally taking an interest in helping your fellow techies solve challenging problems.

Development Process

Although engineering teams follow agile practices--specifically for the purpose of making work visible and transparent--teams tend to experiment and settle on an approach that works for them. Technically you'll also find yourself reviewing code, creating pull requests and deploying said code. We don't have traditional release cycles since we have the ability to deploy to either staging or production environments at will.

Opportunities for learning and growth

Aside from working with exceptionally smart people who never seem to get their fill of doing cool stuff, you get to choose the path you follow at JUMO. Our discuss-the-endpoint-and-we'll-help-you-get-there philosophy means that your career track is completely up to you.

Why work for us

We look for innovators who want to push the boundaries and create things that have never been done before. Our company culture allows out-of-the-box thinking and we look for people who are willing to take calculated risks while constantly challenging themselves. In principle there is no ceiling to the tools and technologies we explore. Although engineering teams all follow agile practices--specifically for the purpose of making work visible and transparent--teams tend to experiment and settle on an approach that works for them.
