Local Startup Hiring Remote Developers

It’s no secret that jobs are not the easiest thing to come by in this lovely country of ours. Whenever there’s an announcement of jobs, depending on the field ours eyes light up and we can’t help but spread the word. This was exactly the case when we bumped into this listing for a remote working developer position at Text Aid.

Now, this was our first time bumping into Text Aid and we are yet to actually have a proper chat with the guys behind that startup to fully understand what it is they do. What we do know is that the Co-Founder at Text Aid Munayaradzi Hoto posted this job listing on his Twitter page and we couldn’t help but spread the word for him. We will be getting in touch with Text Aid to better understand what they do but for now, here’s the job listing:
