We have been developing the Milelel E-commerce platform with a local company for the last 6 months, and whilst they have done a reasonable job on this their experience and expertise in world of e-commerce and business are lacking. We are looking for someone who has had previous experience building similar platforms who would like to spend a few months advising us and further developing the platform to create something that caters for our target market.

The person would be involved closely with the pilot project and would look at ways in which our customers interract with the platform and how to improve the usability and functionality to make it appealing for them. A third of kenyans have access to the internet and 99% of these are on a mobile telephone, however, online shopping is still a fairly new concept for rural Kenyans, which is our target market. We need to adapt our platform so that it caters specifically for this market and is easily accessable on a mobile phone.

We are a young team of dynamic individuals, both local and international and will be more than happy to welcome someone like minded into the team and introduce you to this virbrant city.

Ideally we are looking for someone who wants to take a sabbatical or a short break from their current job and city and experience something completely different for a few months.

We cannot offer you a salary but in return for your services we will take care of your board and lodging in Nairobi. If you are interested in the great outdoors there are hundreds of amazing places within easy access of Nairobi where you will see fantastic landscape, culture and wildlife.
