About the role Tech at Bridge is a highly complex, vertically-integrated affair, with systems supporting an ever expanding range of functions and countries, and crossing between software development, IT operations, academy operations, and logistics/supply chain. At the same time, our teams run lean and things change fast governments make policy decisions that affect us, launching new countries is a frenetic affair, and we still need to evolve our core technology offering. We are looking for team leads to spearhead our new Hyderabad-based, cross-functional software delivery teams. In addition to being technically excellent and an individual contributor, a team lead is responsible for the end-to-end progress and quality of her project (looking across all disciplines and technology stacks) and for ensuring that her team is following their agreed norms and processes. What You Will Do In addition to the responsibilities of a senior member of the delivery team, including being an individual contributor, the key additional responsibilities of a team lead include: Gather requirements, build, test, and ship new Android functionality for our academy tech platform. Collaborate with the server-side developers to design the APIs for specifically for the Android application (not just consuming APIs that were already developed for a web app) Engage on all dimensions of the app, from UI and UX, to business logic, to storage and networking. Introduce architectural patterns to improve scalability, stability, and maintainability. Ensure the overall quality of the product being delivered meets our standards for scalability and maintainability. You will be comfortable not only in your primary functional area, but also able to oversee excellence across all aspects of delivery and are accountable for keeping the project and team on track. Focus on continuous improvement, pushing the team to adopt new approaches and technologies, ensuring that we stay on top of emerging standards. Work with the software software engineering manager to ensure that the team is following well-defined processes. And where the processes need refining, to push for those changes. Set the culture and tone of the team - to push for business relevance, delivery excellence, and innovation. Find opportunities for team members to develop professionally and personally. Ensure that informal feedback mechanisms and retrospectives are happening. Communicate project status to key stakeholders. The focus should be on low-touch information radiators - but ultimately, the lead needs to

Description Who We Are Bridge International Academies is the world s largest and fastest -growing chain of primary and pre -primary schools with more than 500 academies and 100,000 pupils in Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, India, and Liberia. We democratize the right to succeed by giving families living in poverty access to the high -quality education that will allow their children to live a very different life. We leverage experts, data, and technology in order to standardize and scale every aspect of quality education delivery, from how and where academies are built to how teachers are selected and trained, and how lessons are delivered and monitored for improvement. We are vertically -integrated, tech -enabled, and on our way to profitability. Bridge expects to continue rapid expansion in 2018 across existing markets. The Bridge Offer Roughly 2.7 billion people live on less than $2 /day. In their communities, there is a huge gap between the education offered and the needs of the population. Too often the schools available to them fail to deliver for these families. The quality offered results in the average pupil from our communities in East Africa failing to reach proficiency in primary school and on average fail the primary exit exams that are critical to their development. Teachers are unresponsive and occasionally abusive, and fees are often unaffordable. Even government schools can cost families a significant amount of money after all the additional fees are added up. With 47% of classroom teaching time lost due to teacher absenteeism or neglect, 55% of families in our communities end up choosing private schools instead, but then fear for the stability and sustainability of their choice as many schools close after only a few years of service. Both the government schools and the private schools tend to lack well -conceived scope and sequences, instructional materials, student achievement data, and the capacity to react to that data. Families are actively searching for a better academic alternative. Enter Bridge International Academies. As of September 2017, Bridge operates more than 500 academies, serving roughly 100,000 pupils in Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, India, and Liberia. Bridge utilises a scripted -learning education methodology coupled with 'big data' (all teachers have tablets for instruction, assessment, and data -gathering) that allows us to make curriculum a little better every day. With plans to enrol ten million students ten years from now, Bridge International Academies offers a tremendous opportunity to grow with one of the world s most exciting, ambitious, and socially conscious companies, with leadership roles available across a number of competencies and geographies. Tech at Bridge Technology plays a critical role at Bridge in enabling us to provide education at massive scale and low cost - it's one of the key elements that gives us the ability to deliver what no one else can. Tech spans several key functions, from the hardware and software that our academies use to run all aspects of teaching and management, including mobile payments, to the systems that enable our country headquarters to manage massive local operations, to the data backbone that informs all of our strategic and tactical decision making. It s a lot of custom software development and a lot of back office systems. We've got a ridiculously ambitious mission at Bridge, and it's a place where passionate technologists have a chance to directly change the world. No kidding. About the Role Tech at Bridge is a highly complex, vertically -integrated affair, with systems supporting an ever expanding range of functions and countries, and crossing between software development, IT operations, academy operations, and logistics /supply chain. At the same time, our teams run lean and things change fast - governments make policy decisions that affect us, launching new countries is a frenetic affair, and we still need to evolve our core technology offering.

You have 6 years of enterprise software development experience. You are comfortable recommending and advocating for enterprise architectural best practices for highly -available, scalable, and reliable implementations. You have direct experience integrating off -the -shelf and custom built software, and understand the trade -offs between building and buying software. You function well in a fast -paced, informal environment where constant change is the norm and the bar for quality is set high. You have enterprise -level experience with continuous delivery practices and tools (e.g Jenkins, Bamboo, GoCD, Octopus). Proficiency in test -driven development (TDD) and /or behaviour driven development (BDD) is required. You are in expert in four or more of the following areas and interested in learning the rest: C# /.NET Web services (esp. WebAPI or NancyFx; Richardson L2 ) Cloud environments (esp. AWS) and architectures /implementations (e.g. CQRS /ES, circuit breakers, messaging, etc.) Enterprise application performance monitoring (e.g. E.L.K., Nagios, NewRelic, Riverbed) System security (e.g. OWASP, OAuth) Infrastructure -as -Code (e.g. Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Docker, boxstarter, chocolatey /WinRM /powershell). MS SQL Server /T -SQL You must have worked in an agile delivery environment and understand not only the mechanics, but also the underlying motivations. Bridge is primarily a .NET shop (server -side), so experience in this area is preferable; however, Bridge also values developers with diverse experience, so serious exposure to other languages and ecosystems (e.g. NodeJS, Ruby, functional languages, NoSQL DBs) is a bonus. Bridge is a strong supporter of open source projects - familiarity with OSS projects is a plus; contributions to open source projects is a big plus. You re also A detailed doer - You have a track record of getting things done. You re organized and responsive. You take ownership of every idea you touch and execute it to a fine level of detail, setting targets, engaging others, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done.

A networking mastermind - You excel at meeting new people and turning them into advocates. You communicate in a clear, conscientious, and effective way in both written and oral speech. You can influence strangers in the course of a single conversation. Allies and colleagues will go to bat for your ideas. A creative problem -solver - Growing any business from scratch comes with massive and constant challenges. On top of that, Bridge works in volatile, low -resource communities and runs on fees averaging just $6 a month per pupil. You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand. Every dollar you spend is a dollar our customers, who live on less than $2 a day, will have to pay for. A customer advocate - Our customers - these families living on less than $2 a day per person - never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). You would never shrink back from shaking a parent s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like. Every decision you make considers their customer benefit, experience, and value. A life -long learner - You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others. You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you ve missed things or failed today.

Description Who We Are Bridge believes every child has the right to high quality education and works in partnership with governments, communities, parents and teachers to deliver education to over 100,000 children in underserved communities across Africa and Asia. Bridge leverages in-depth teacher training and support, advanced lesson plans and wireless technology to provide pupils with a meaningful and life-changing education. Globally, there is an education crisis. Around 263 million children and young people are not in school and the number of primary school aged children not in school is increasing. Bridge is committed to helping tackle this through a data driven, evidence based approach that delivers strong schools and a great education for all. Bridge has been named as “One of the top 10 Employers” in Africa according to an annual survey. For more information look at the blog on the Bridge website. The Bridge Approach Education is in crisis in many countries around the world. It is estimated that 264 million children and young people are out of school, and 330 million children are in school but not learning. In addition, an extra 69 million teachers are needed to achieve the 2030 UN education goals. Many education systems are plagued with inadequate materials and poor management systems, all leading to chronic teacher absenteeism and a lack of learning. Education reform is challenging but it is urgently required if we are to prevent another generation of children missing out. So, we work in partnership with governments, NGOs and non-state actors to address the huge education imbalance between what is available and what is needed right now — we work to bridge the gap. We believe parents have the right to choose a school for their children and we enable families to enjoy seeing their children learn, improve and flourish at Bridge schools. We locate our schools in some of the most disadvantaged communities in the world. Families in our communities can be earning just $1.90 per person a day; a level the World Bank notes is at extreme poverty. By putting learning at the centre of all we do, Bridge has become an extremely popular choice for underserved families and low-income communities.

What You Will Do Assume ownership over the server-side architecture of the Bridge software platforms Design, implement, and support new products and features Analyse and improve the server-side architecture with a focus on maintainability and scalability Mentor and guide junior engineers, including performing code reviews Collaborate with project sponsors to elaborate requirements and facilitate trade-offs that maximise customer value Work with product and development teams to establish overall technical direction and product strategy What You Will Have You have a BA/BS in Computer Science or related technical field. You have 6+ years of enterprise software development experience. You are comfortable recommending and advocating for enterprise architectural best practices for highly-available, scalable, and reliable implementations. You have direct experience integrating off-the-shelf and custom built software, and understand the trade-offs between building and buying software. You function well in a fast-paced, informal environment where constant change is the norm and the bar for quality is set high. You have enterprise-level experience with continuous delivery practices and tools (e.g Jenkins, Bamboo, GoCD, Octopus). Proficiency in test-driven development (TDD) and/or behaviour driven development (BDD) is required. You are in expert in four or more of the following areas and interested in learning the rest: C#/.NET Web services (esp. WebAPI or NancyFx; Richardson L2+) Cloud environments (esp. AWS) and architectures/implementations (e.g. CQRS/ES, circuit breakers, messaging, etc.) Enterprise application performance monitoring (e.g. E.L.K., Nagios, NewRelic, Riverbed) System security (e.g. OWASP, OAuth) Infrastructure-as-Code (e.g. Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Docker, boxstarter, chocolatey/WinRM/powershell). MS SQL Server/T-SQL You must have worked in an agile delivery environment and understand not only the mechanics, but also the underlying motivations. Bridge is primarily a .NET shop (server-side), so experience in this area is preferable; however, Bridge also values developers with diverse experience, so serious exposure to other languages and ecosystems (e.g. NodeJS, Ruby, functional languages, NoSQL DBs) is a bonus. Bridge is a strong supporter of open source projects – familiarity with OSS projects is a plus; contributions to open source projects is a big plus. You’re also A detailed doer – You have a track record of getting things done. You’re organized and responsive. You take ownership of every idea you touch and execute it to a fine level of detail, setting targets, engaging others, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. You can multi-task dozens of such projects at once and never lose sight of the details. Likely, you have some experience in a start-up or other rapid-growth company. A networking mastermind – You excel at meeting new people and turning them into advocates. You communicate in a clear, conscientious, and effective way in both written and oral speech. You can influence strangers in the course of a single conversation. Allies and colleagues will go to bat for your ideas. A creative problem-solver – Growing any business from scratch comes with massive and constant challenges. On top of that, Bridge works in volatile, low-resource communities and runs on fees averaging just $6 a month per pupil. You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand. Every dollar you spend is a dollar our customers, who live on less than $2 a day, will have to pay for. A customer advocate – Our customers – these families living on less than $2 a day per person – never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). You would never shrink back from shaking a parent’s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like. Every decision you make considers their customer benefit, experience, and value. A life-long learner – You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others. You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you’ve missed things or failed today.
