Summary

What we do:

Billions of people in emerging markets are coming online for the first time, most of them via mobile phones. Many have limited or no access to financial services.

JUMO combines technology with data to create progressive financial choices for anyone, anywhere. On the JUMO platform, a customer can configure a savings, or lending product by amount, term and payment method. We believe any individual should be able to leverage their data footprint and access financial services tailored to their needs.

A blueprint for our mission does not exist and our growth trajectory is steep thus we look for exceptional people who will enhance our culture and who have the potential to have an impact now and in the future.

We are motivated by an ambitious purpose and inspired by the exceptional people that we work with.

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 and Python 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.

Our culture

Forward thinking; Innovative; Adaptable; Curious;

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.

Aside from working with some 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.
