IT Career Jobs – Software Engineer at Fenix International

Organisation: Fenix International
Duty Station: Kampala, Uganda
About US:
Fenix International is a for-profit corporation and the creator of
affordable, Pay-To-Own renewable energy products that empower those living
off-grid. Over 34m people in Uganda are off-grid, which equates to 6.2m
households who have no access to power and instead depend on kerosene for light
and local businesses for phone charging. To address this, Fenix International
has developed ReadyPay, a new Pay-To-Own Solar Power System. Coming in a range
of kits, ReadyPay Power Systems are designed to provide clean light, phone
charging, entertainment and more for those living off-grid.
Each ReadyPay is unique in that it contains lock-out technology, and,
together with MTN Mobile Money, it allows a customer to take a solar power
system home for a small down payment from just $15. Customers then “top up”
their ReadyPay through MTN Mobile Money payments (starting from $0.40 per day).
Each time a payment is made via Mobile Money, their ReadyPay Solar Power System
is unlocked for a set period of time. Customers will then eventually own their ReadyPay
systems after making continuous mobile money payments for a period 18 months.
