We are a Y Combinator startup backed by a top tier VC: Battery Ventures; and we are building the future trading platform of B2B in Africa.
We are on a mission to unlock trade in Africa, by creating transparency and trust in international trade.
Our headquarters are in: Morocco and Spain; with offices in the UK and Benin too!
We use the most up-to-date technologies, and we are looking for software developers to help us develop our mobile offering and extend our micro services architecture.
So far we've used a hybrid solution but we'd like you to take charge of the way we tackle mobile, and the way its going to revolutionize the way businesses trade in Africa.
Here is a short video about us: The African Opportunity
We want every African business to be able to trade internationally, just like any company and take advantage of cutting edge tech to solve payments, logistics, and most importantly trust issues. In our first year of full operations (2017) we already grew 300%, and the sky is the limit!
