Software Engineer (32-40hrs a week)
Ready to bring change in the world with your work? Is now the time to go for that interesting job at a change-making company? For an ambitious and innovative company in Amsterdam StudiJob is looking for a Software Engineer (32-40hrs per week).
Where will you work?
This company is on its way to create a worldwide cooking revolution. Cooking on open fires has severe consequences for health, poverty (fuel costs up to 20% of a family’s budget) and the environment (emissions). Lack of access to electricity exacerbates these problems and limits access to modern solutions. Having witnessed this first hand in Africa, this family decided to take action in order to create lasting change!
Therefore they developed a multifunctional device: a smart and modern cooking stove. It uses a range of biomass fuels to provide smokeless cooking as well as solar energy for lighting and phone charging. It was designed and is manufactured in Lesotho, Africa, a country with severe employment shortages. Their factory is now 49 employees strong, including 29 women and 6 disabled employees. Head quarter is located at the Tropen institute in Amsterdam, where they currently work with 10 persons at the office.
What will you do?
The hardware (the smart / modern cooking stove) stands and functions! They would now like to catch up on software. They can use some help for that. Data is generated from an electronic device within the cooking stove and is sent to a mobile app. You will be responsible for the support of linking data from the mobile app and the cooking stove.
For example, you’ll work on a feature for the app so that users can make mobile payments for their use of the cooking stove. This requires integrating with external payment provider APIs (e.g. MomoPay, Airtel, Findok, DPO, etc.). Also the user experience in the app must keep in mind that it is also easy to use for illiterate persons.
