About the Job

Today’s disruptive environment calls for a different mindset and a new approach to digital communication technology. As DXPR we are part of the open web movement, taking the power of the internet back from tech giants through decentralized digital experience platforms.

Job responsibilities

  • Use local knowledge to grow our software development team in Cairo
  • Join conference calls with 10+ people (client-side) to explain our technology to potential clients

  • Manage our continuous investment in CI/CD and help set up visual regression testing in Github Actions
