As KOKO grows within and outside Kenya, our team is looking for a motivated engineer who is passionate about data and who will lay the foundation for more effective and efficient data management, analytics, and developing insights in business strategy, operations planning, and product design.
As one of our first data engineers, you’ll work with our Business, Analytics, Product and other Engineering teams to enable them to do more with KOKO’s data, and faster. You’ll formulate a strategy for our data processing and data stores, and own implementation and maintenance of these designs, ensuring continued high performance and availability.
KOKO’s suite of products spans multiple technical domains and disciplines in software and hardware, and so experience in end-to-end systems thinking across distributed components is key for this role. IoT and real time data processing feature heavily in our technology suite.
