At Maisha Meds, we believe all patients have a right to appropriate and effective healthcare. Across sub-Saharan Africa, private sector pharmacies play a major role in providing primary care, yet they remain largely separate from and unrecognized by the health system, lacking the technology, data, and support to make the highest quality healthcare widely
Maisha Meds is hiring! We’re looking for a software engineer to improve health care in Africa!
Our main product is an Android app that both operates as a point-of-sale tool and helps pharmacies manage their inventory and restock products. Our app is used by hundreds of pharmacies in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Tanzania to support hundreds of thousands of patients every year. We’re rapidly expanding our user base, and are planning on expanding to more countries this year!
We also launched a program to help subsidize medicine for patients and reward pharmacists for better medical practices. We’ve helped thousands of patients in the past couple of months and we’re aiming to reach significantly more.
What We’re Looking For
We’re looking for an Android engineer to collaborate with our tech team to launch new programs for patients and expand our POS system to new countries.
The ideal candidate has:
- 3+ years of building quality applications,
- A history of writing clean and well-documented code with automated tests,
- Experience integrating with REST APIs,
- Excellent communication skills and the ability to work well with a culturally diverse team (we’re a mix of Kenyans and international team members)
- Experience building apps for environments with limited or intermittent Internet connectivity is a plus
Our preferred technology:
Our headquarters is in Kisumu, on the shores of Lake Victoria. Many members of our organization are remote across Kenya and internationally, especially on the tech team. We’d certainly be open to remote work. We would love to have you join us on-site in Kisumu (for a flexible amount of time) once it’s safe to travel again.
We’re a small, friendly team that values open communication and mentorship.
If you’re a fit, we’ll reach out to you once the application closes.
