A Fintech company in Zimbabwe, Golix ( Update: previously known as BitFinance) has some fresh vacancies… 4 to be precise!

This is obviously good news, I mean it goes without saying. There isn’t much formal employment available, in fact there hasn’t been in a while. So here’s a chance for you to be that Product Manager, Designer, Data Scientist (speaking of which, you might want to check this out) or Software engineer you’ve always wanted to be (or suddenly decided you wanted to be)….. ride on it!

After the founders of Golix realised how the process of making international payments from Zimbabwe was a nightmare for most, even impossible for some; they decided to solve this problem using digital currencies such as bitcoin, Litecoin and Dash.

So in essence, Golix seeks to give everyone financial autonomy.

    It is great to see companies in Zimbabwe with jobs that require such sophisticated skills.

    While teaching computer science at the Chinhoyi University of Technology (2014-2015) I was asked to give several talks on career development. The slides for those talks are at http://informationanthology.net/StudentTransitionWorkshop.

    Of particular interest to readers of this particular post may be the slides on scholarships (left-hand column of the page) and the sides on job hunting (center column, particularly slide 17).
