Passionate CTO for Ugandan Tech Company

Are you an experienced full-stack engineer who loves to inspire and mentor others? Do you want to play a part in laying the foundation for the tech industry in Uganda? That’s exactly what you’ll get a chance to do as SafeBoda’s CTO in thriving Kampala!


Motorcycle taxis are immensely popular and serve as the lifeblood of many cities in Africa, but they are extremely unsafe and disorganized. SafeBoda is a pre-series A Ugandan-based startup on a mission to make motorcycle taxis (bodas) more safe, affordable, and convenient across Sub-Saharan Africa—while providing a more meaningful and lucrative career for drivers. And we think we have a shot at building a very valuable tech company in the process: we plan to hit a $100 million valuation in 3 years.
Backed by the Shell Foundation, Development Innovation Ventures USAID, the Global Innovation Fund, and an angel tech investor, SafeBoda is well off to the races: we have nailed the driver-side model with 1000+ drivers, growing at 8% week-on-week over the last 6 months, and we are looking to better monetize our ~20,000 daily trips in Kampala.
Why Kampala, Uganda? The market is ready. With a current population of 3 million, Kampala is growing rapidly, with a strong middle class and the youngest population on earth. The city is known for its rapidly developing infrastructure and spirit of entrepreneurship—Kampala is in the top 3 in Mobile Money use on the continent. East Africa is a high-growth tech hub. Other prominent tech companies are making waves here already (Rocket Internet/Jumia is making a big play, and Kampala is one of Uber’s 4 African markets).
Often termed “Africa for beginners” due to easy access to modern conveniences and the
friendliness of the people, Kampala is a great place to live, too. Crime levels and the threat of political instability or terrorism are low. The food scene is excellent, with restaurants serving amazing food from all around the world. A strong European/North American expat community, incredible weather all year round, and great access to many incredible vacation spots make Kampala an excellent destination for anyone looking for new experiences and adventures.
