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 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’re looking for a Full Stack Engineer who is as comfortable optimizing SQL queries as they are spinning up new environments on AWS.
This person will spend their day touching all aspects of our system, from building AWS resources to a full-stack feature for our dashboard.
A morning optimizing SQL queries may be followed by an afternoon pushing a new feature to our React front end. We work fast and expect our new hires to keep up.
This role requires an individual with great communication skills, customer empathy, and the ability to document their code in a way our customers can understand.
Our ideal candidate can operate with a high degree of independence, yet integrate seamlessly into the team, defending their technical approach effectively when pressed, but accepting feedback and learning from mistakes quickly. Our team is distributed and often works remotely, so it is imperative that candidates for this role be efficient self-starters who can deliver consistently without a lot of management.
Email resume to firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out through a mutual connection to one of the members of our team.
At Smile Identity we believe anyone should be able to prove their identity easily, anywhere in the world.

We’ve been part of security investigations and have pursued fraudsters. Having worked with, or for, telecoms, lenders, banks and startups, we know the challenges of building world-class technology and we understand the needs of the African consumer and enterprise customer.
