We are looking for a teammate with a mix of UI design and front end development experience to work with us on software to help improve healthcare in Nigeria, Kenya and beyond. At Field, we design and build software to solve very difficult problems in frontier markets. Our tech has to function in remote locations with poor connectivity and must oftentimes be used by untrained community health workers with low tech literacy.
In this capacity, you'll work on building and supporting our software’s interface, with a focus on well-structured, maintainable CSS, modular component systems and performant UIs. You will be part of a cross-functional team designing and implementing new features, but will also work closely with other developers in Berlin and Nigeria, supporting each other and collaborating through code reviews.
In the day-to-day, you will:
Some travel to our offices (and out to the field) in Nigeria or Kenya may be required. We are generally pretty flexible with travel arrangements.
Please apply with your CV and a folio. We’d really like to dive into the details of your work, so we’d rather have a few detailed case studies than a lot of shiny-looking screenshots with no context. Tell us about the goals, the context, constraints, the team, your role and your thought process. For each project/case study, please include (where applicable) a bit about:
Project background: Set the context for the project. What was the goal of the project? What were your constraints? What was the timeline?
Team and your role: What was your exact role? What did you uniquely contribute, and who did you work with?
The work and process: show us the range of what you produced, and the process you followed, including a link to a working site or app if possible.
Your learnings: With hindsight, and based on the process and outcome, was there anything you would have done differently?
