Gokada is a company that seeks to improve the lives of millions of Nigerians through technology. Our first business vertical of motorcycle taxi has been incredibly successful and we've been able to raise $7MM due to our impressive growth. We don't intend to stop there. Gokada has plans to develop technologies to create efficiencies in markets ranging from transport to agriculture. Gokada is at an exciting crossroads and we're looking for talented, intelligent, and out-of-the-box thinkers with some level of technical expertise. Nigeria presents a multitude of opportunities for Gokada. With the right team solving problems in a novel way, we believe Gokada is well-positioned to become one of the premier technology companies coming out of Africa.

The Role
We are seeking problem solvers - individuals who can choose to ignore prior experience and look at a problem objectively to find unique solutions. Having a software development or some technical focus is preferred as Gokada utilizes technology in order to scale potential solutions. The role would entail being in charge of a particular "prototype project" which in itself can turn into a full-fledged business vertical. You will have assistance from experienced management to ensure the success of your prototype. This role requires self-starters that can learn quickly and that do not mind working autonomously.

  • Ability to analyze data and make objective decisions
  • Software development or technology background
  • Past experience in self-starting a business or project
  • Highly inquisitive
  • Motivation to make a positive impact and help people
  • Empathetic
  • Quick learner
  • Highly ambitious
  • Not satisfied with the status quo - question everything

Compensation:

  • $80k USD/year
  • 0.25% - 1% equity
