Software Engineer - Nigeria

We’re looking for a javascript engineer to help us build and maintain our suite of country-scale logistics and program intelligence systems for distributed, occasionally-connected contexts.

As you'd expect, your job will include architecting, building and supporting clean, modular, well tested code; however as part of a multi-disciplinary team you will also help investigate user needs and design solutions alongside our other technology and subject-matter experts, playing a key role in building and delivering our mission-critical services.

As a mid-level engineer you'll engage in a wide range of application development, data operations and support activities, following established design patterns and best practices to support our distributed, offline-first systems for emerging markets. You will work closely with other developers in Berlin and Nigeria, supporting each other and collaborating through frequent code reviews and strong adherence to best practices, as we develop tools to shape health supply chains at scale in some of the fastest growing places in the world.


  • Professional experience building and maintaining live systems

  • Professional experience with client- and server-side Javascript, and document-oriented databases (CouchDB, AWS, React experience all a plus but not critical)

  • Excellent communication skills including experience working in cross-cultural settings

  • A deep curiosity about information architecture, design patterns, and critical evaluation of new technologies

  • Experience with serverless and event-driven application architectures

  • MS/BA/BS in computer science, or comparable work experience

  • Excellent problem solving skills and ability to think about solutions in an holistic way

  • Detail-oriented approach to work

  • Team-oriented, learning-oriented (no cowboys)

  • Location: Abuja or Lagos (travel encouraged but not required)

  • Language skills: English (fluent)


  • Experience with data-driven decision-support systems
  • Experience in designing for offline-first solutions or environments with unstable internet connections
  • Experience with supply chain
  • Experience in remote work with distributed teams
  • Desire to travel
If this sounds like a place you'd like to come to work, we humbly suggest we could do some great things together. Please get in touch with a CV or portfolio.
