Company Size


NawiriGroup holds controlling interests in a portfolio of leading responsible travel companies and supports a range of impact organisations and initiatives in some of the greatest, globally important natural wilderness areas on the African continent. Our roots date back to the nineties when some of the companies within NawiriGroup were first established. Across various brands, we employ more than 1,000 people and have a footprint of 20 camps and lodges in Kenya and Tanzania and commercial and support offices in multiple countries.

Our commitment to making a positive impact in the wilderness areas and local communities where we operate has earned us international recognition, including our first B-Corp certification over a decade ago.

Why should you work for us?

  • Become a part of a certified B Corporation, which harnesses the power of business for the greater good.

Our foundation is dedicated to creating positive, widespread change and is supported by prominent philanthropists, allowing us to surpass our usual capacity.

  • Collaborate with outstanding coworkers and teams who strive for excellence.

Our team:

Our engineering team created a platform that allows safari experts to create logistically complex holidays in sub-Saharan Africa. Nawiri Groups' capability includes seamless checking of both price and accommodation availability; managing and delivering a responsive itinerary, and handling supplier interfaces.

We estimate that the majority of travel into sub-Saharan Africa touches our platform in some way. Our ambition is to become the primary market.

We're currently a team of around 54 individuals, comprising engineers, product owners, designers and data specialists, with big plans to grow. We follow a Kanban-inspired process, continuously deploy, and release as stories are completed. We're big on quality, and have a culture of code reviews and extensive test coverage.

Our technology stack is varied, and we use the best tool for the job. We typically use Ruby for the backend and React for the more complex front end.

Our hiring process

You'll meet our Engineering Manager and Senior Engineer for around 60 minutes. If we all think we're a fit you'll complete an exercise in your own time, followed by a discussion. If that goes well, we'll make an offer.
