Angaza creates software for selling life-changing products in underserved markets.
Every day, families in more than thirty countries, from Kenya to Nigeria to India, use technology developed by Angaza to buy solar home systems with “pay-as-you-go” (PAYG) financing. These off-grid products were designed and manufactured by an Angaza partner such as Greenlight Planet or Fosera, with Angaza collaborating to integrate PAYG functionality into the product firmware, electronics, and overall design.
After the sale, a local distributor uses Angaza software to manage that family’s affordable payment plan. Each installment payment is processed by Angaza backend software, reactivating the solar home system by communicating with the Angaza firmware that it embeds.
Angaza’s payment and communication platforms make this story possible. The payment platform enables our distributor partners to digitize their payments. The communication platform enables us to deliver time critical information to our clients.
Angaza builds software that manages solar financing for more than half a million off-grid families. As an engineering manager focused on our payment and communication platforms, you will play a critical role in making that number much larger.
At Angaza we support diversity of thought, experience, and background, and seek to welcome new perspectives and skills to the team.
