Job Description

About AngazaAngaza creates software that enables businesses to sell life-changing products to anyone, anywhere. Our technology uses an IoT network of connected devices, mobile payments, and machine learning to accelerate the adoption of transformative products, such as solar lights, smartphones, and cookstoves.
Over 2 billion people across the globe live off-grid or are unbanked. Angaza’s technology empowers distributors to make transformative products like clean cookstoves and water pumps accessible and affordable to these individuals in emerging markets. When a family in Tanzania (or Nicaragua, or Nigeria, or Bangladesh) purchases a life-changing product, Angaza’s complete solution enables them to afford the product with convenient incremental payments. With Angaza’s B2B technology solution, distribution businesses in emerging markets can grow their revenue by over 8x by extending their sales and credit offerings to this consumer base.
Today, businesses in 50+ countries around the world have improved the daily lives of over 13 million people through the Angaza platform while supporting 60,000 jobs and averting 1.5 billion kg in CO2 emission.
