- Role: Product Manager
- Venture: Ensibuuko
- Location: Kampala, Uganda
Ensibuuko Tech Limited is a software firm operating in the financial technologies sector. Ensibuuko was registered in Uganda on October 13, 2014 and is specialised in developing software solutions for Microfinance institutions, mainly cooperative savings and credit entities.
The company provides a complete suite of backend SaaS-based solutions to member-owned financial institutions, such as SACCOs and other microfinance institutions in Africa. Our customers serve groups ranging in size from 100 – 35,000 end users. Mobis, our flagship product, provides core-banking services to these institutions. Based in Uganda, we are currently expanding into Rwanda, Tanzania, and Nigeria.
A fellow would be key to our vision as they would bring a unique skill set and also provide an avenue for our team to gain experience and insights from someone with a different cultural perspective.
Ensibuuko is looking for a product manager who can guide the vision of Mobis, its category-leading core banking system for SACCOs (community-owned banks).
The product manager is the interface between our customers, our software development team, and our sales & marketing team. This person is responsible for gathering input from all of these sources and making (sometimes difficult) choices about how Mobis will evolve. In broad terms the product manager will own the product and the product road map and be responsible for Mobis’ overall design, usability, and user experience.
As a Product Manager for Ensibuuko, your responsibilities will include:
- Ensuring that the system design is usable by our customers
- Implementing a customer feedback system
- Preparing product briefs
- Collaborating on sprint planning with the software development team
- Overseeing the production of customer support materials
