Smile Identity’s mission is to make the benefits of a modern digital lifestyle universally accessible by expanding trust in underserved markets. To do this, we use computer vision, machine learning, human review and local integrations to provide a comprehensive KYC (Know Your Customer) and user identification solution for mobile-first frontier markets, beginning in Africa.
We are backed by US and African investors including Vinod Khosla, CRE Venture Capital, Savannah Fund, and PTB Ventures.
We are looking for a front end engineer with a passion for web development who wants to be a key part of the team building our enterprise-facing products. We need someone flexible that can balance between the day to day challenges of customer-driven fire drills, while developing scalable, process-driven methods for continuous improvement and daily software updates.
The job is to take our front-end user experiences and capabilities to the next level. We want to set a standard for beautiful, intuitive and useful enterprise software experiences on the African continent and beyond. To do this you’ll work with design consultants, our core engineering team in Silicon Valley, our Ops Team in Cape Town, and our CEO, to decide how best to improve our displays, interfaces, system configurations and the efficiency and performance of all customer facing surfaces.
