Head of Development ( Egypt )

Do you have the passion for building great teams? 

Great, then we would like to introduce ourselves and talk to you! We are a fast-paced startup building the next generation of audio entertainment for the world’s 400 million (!) Arabic speaking people. You will join a versatile team of problem solvers who are crafting a best-in-class product that our users love.

We have great traction with some of the best investors on-board and users who can't go to sleep without listening to Kitab Sawti first. If you want to be a part of a young and passionate team building a new global market, you’re in the right place. Our offices are located in Stockholm, Cairo and Dubai. 

Now we are looking for an experienced Head of Development to build and lead our team in Cairo.


What we expect from you

  • You have experience in building and manage teams of software engineers.
  • Change is not a scary word to you. You thrive in organisations that constantly adapt and evolve.
  • We expect that you’ve worked in a similar role before, and have enough experience to work independently.
  • This is a wide role that may sometimes require you to be an analyst, a project manager or a business developer. We count on that you will know best what is needed to get the job done, and that you will fill different roles when necessary.
  • You have a background in software development and delivery, and you understand the process of building software. We don’t expect you to be able to code, but maybe you’ve done that in your previous life.
  • You have experience in working with mobile products.
  • You share similar values to what we believe in: being egoless, focusing on end-customer, taking end-to-end responsibility, having courage to act, curiosity to experiment and to take risk.
  • You have great communication skills. You also know how to give (and receive) constructive feedback.
  • You are fluent in Arabic and English.

What you can expect from us

  • Learn and work with some of the best entrepreneurs that will give you insights to all relevant aspects of building a great product.
  • Work in a flat, modern organisation with no bureaucracy where trust is the most important trait.
  • Work in a fast-paced company where time between decision to action is minimal.
  • The opportunity to build the Arabic audiobook market, a global business, meaningful network and experience.
  • Competitive compensation.
