We are looking for Senior Backend Engineers to join our Retention and Acquisition Sales product groups as we grow and expand our market impact and reach. We use the latest technologies and architectures to build fantastic solutions that help us provide digital and financial inclusion to our customers across our operational markets.

As an engineer in either of the groups, you will work as a collaborator, more senior members will coach and contribute placing an emphasis on high quality output observability and monitoring as well as automated testing in all environments, including production. One team in particular uses infrastructure as code demonstrating the unique nature of some of our work.

About Us

We foster autonomy inside the teams, while keeping some standards across the company. We use predominantly C# written against the latest .NET stack, and favor microservices hosted on Azure using Kubernetes for all new implementations. We are constantly iterating towards a completely decoupled, event driven architecture across our entire software portfolio.

We have a mix of legacy services and greenfield microservices, so if you love the challenge of improving a legacy codebase while working on new projects then this might just be the role for you.


Our expectations are that you would be comfortable working as part of a team which owns the entire software stack, including the supporting infrastructure, throughout the entire software lifecycle from inception, through production and right the way to decommissioning under a DevOps culture.

If you also value the constraints that continuous delivery places upon engineering processes and embrace testing and observability as first order concerns in the development of software, you probably have what it takes to join one of the teams and help shape our future.

We are looking for good grasp of / and experience with C#.NET, Event Driven Systems, microservices, testing and Deployment.


We are a diverse and inclusive company that empowers our people to own their careers through diverse development programs, coaching partnerships, and on-the-job training. We support individual journeys with family-friendly policies, prioritize well-being, and embrace flexibility.

Our roles are fully remote, within the following time zone (UTC -1 / UTC+3). Our engineers work remotely from locations such as UK, Europe and Africa.

If the above is of interest to you, please apply and join us in shaping the future of M-KOPA as we grow together. Explore more at
