Want to be part of the biggest tech center in Africa and work in mixed teams with over 16 different nationalities? Join Jumia Egypt Tech Centers where tech meets purpose. At Egypt Tech Centers you will be managed by and mentored by top tech leaders in both Portugal and Egypt. You will also be working with state-of-the-art technologies & methodologies, and using agile philosophy, all as means to improve the lives of millions of Africans across the continent by offering them convenient and affordable online solutions. And with that as our PURPOSE, innovation at Jumia NEVER stops and you will be moving from one exciting challenge to the next.

What you will be doing

  • Identify the main blockers preventing teams to perform better and propose solutions to overcome them rather than blindly applying an Agile framework
  • Interact with, coach, and mentor different teams and roles including developers, testers, product owners, business stakeholders, and engineering managers
  • Coach teams and individuals by installing a mindset of continuous improvement where change is embraced and seen as an opportunity rather than an obstacle
  • Teach teams how to cooperate and, possibly, collaborate effectively and autonomously
  • Contribute to building a safe environment where experimentation is welcome
  • Use your Agile experience to mentor teams on Agile approaches such as BDD, TDD, Refactoring, CI/CD, Pair Programming, User Stories, and Simple Design, and how to effectively use Agile business/team-facing practices such as roadmap planning, iteration planning, User Stories, and Retrospectives
  • Build company-wide solutions and frameworks that can be used as mentorship/training tools and installed into the team's processes (tooling, CI/CD, test automation, BDD)
  • Find a group of humble and smart people ready to make you grow and to grow with you
  • Change the Internet landscape in Africa and the world

We offer:
