Senior Backend Developer

Nairobi (Kenya) and Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

At CarePay, you work with us and not for us! We’re introducing cutting-edge technology to transform the healthcare industry. We do almost everything in-house, developing software using the latest technologies and tools. If you’re a passionate backend or frontend Developer, we want you to join our team of over 25 nationalities at our Amsterdam office to make healthcare more accessible for more people in Africa. From day one, you can make a real difference in people’s lives.

In Kenya, people know CarePay better as M-TIBA. The name refers to mobile healthcare access and “health” in Swahili (tiba).

🚀 In short

Your main task is to deliver quality solutions for our end users and at the same time keep the platform fit for the future. This means next to working on green fields projects, you also refactor existing modules to match our high level of engineering. You guide and coach fellow team members, you help them grow, and you maximize your impact.
