- Role: Web Developer

- Location: Nairobi, Kenya
Annona is an award-winning social enterprise that is taking global food trade by storm. We are perfecting a mobile platform that simplifies trading between buyers and small-scale producers worldwide. Night and day we think about how to transform trading data into useful products and services that are both affordable and efficient.
The Annona platform is a mobile application to document details a buyer would otherwise write down on paper and pen, tracking purchases from farmers and sales to retailers. For more formal companies, Annona provides additional web-based enterprise software to centralize, customize and approve processes for their company.
Great traders and farmers receive financial services based on their Annona trading activity and other external factors used to build a credit history. Retail consumers can learn about where their food comes from.
25,000 farmers have profiles on Annona in 15 countries. We are on a path to becoming the largest platform for small-scale producer trading in the world.
As a Web Developer with Annona, you will work with the Annona team in Nairobi, Kenya.
You will work directly with the CEO to match our business strategies with our technology. You’ll be responsible for architecting, designing, road mapping and helping build our platform to fit our users’ needs. Scalability will be an overused word in your vocabulary. While you will be working alongside other developers, both mobile and web, you’ll also help us improve our team. The Customer Success, Business Development and Marketing teams will be your partners when it comes to building the right user features.
Our back-end is in Python, a nice amount of AWS and a few APIs we have integrated with. We are looking for a developer who can quickly deploy using this stack.
