Code for Africa (CfA) has an immediate vacancy for a Front End Software Engineer to join one of its civic technology labs in Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria or Tanzania.
As a UX engineer, you will help ensure that the company’s digital products are built to be as intuitive and impactful as possible, to give actionable information/tools to people across the continent and beyond.
The successful candidate will report to CfA’s lead technologist, as part of our multinational developer team, and will work closely with our data and content teams to build robust systems/infrastructure for our partners in watchdog civil society organisations, the investigative media and selected progressive government agencies.
CFA is a non-profit advocate for open source software (along with open data), and the successful candidate will, therefore, be required to help champion these principles by adopting best practices and helping document all our technologies to help others reuse it free of charge.
