Engineering at Afriex

Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on two-week cycles. Each cycle begins with a meeting to discuss time estimates for features and ends with a demo meeting where each engineer can show off the work they’ve completed. Engineers typically work with a designer and any other interested parties to spec a feature then work on the feature individually. We use pull-requests on GitHub to conduct code reviews. All engineers are also empowered to push code to production. Which we often do multiple times a day.

Technical Challenges

We are building a payments system that needs to handle millions of users concurrently making payments across multiple geographies and using multiple currencies.

We interact heavily with cryptocurrencies and blockchain architecture

Projects you might work on
  • You would get to work on our payment architecture that handles thousands of concurrent data connections

  • You would be building the admin panel/control center completely from scratch

  • You would get to work on our mobile app for end users in over 30 countries
