We’re looking for an experienced Front-End Engineer to join our collaborative team. The team is made up of curious life-long learners who get excited about solving novel technical challenges. The task of the team is not to build a traditional web app but to create a seamless, thoughtful way for users.

About Shahry

Shahry is an AI powered mobile credit card. Launched in 2019, we have grown exponentially accelerating access to credit for unbanked Egyptians. Positioned as a buy-now-pay-later app for goods, Shahry offers Egypt’s only fully digital lending solution where applying for credit happens without a `wet signature`.

We source products exclusively from reputable merchants and allow monthly repayment of purchases through digital payments, credit cards, or Egypt’s vast network of over 200k PoS.

Shahry is also Egypt’s only startup funded and partnered with a regulated bank, allowing us unlimited to access financing and industry expertise to build a radical and innovative fintech platform.

This is an example of the stuff that allows us to geek out: automating credit scorecards, digitizing behavioral footprints, (automating) user profiling, and rocking the boat in general.

  • Experience with writing automated tests (eg. Jest, Karma, Jasmine, Mocha, AVA, tape)

  • Craft code that meets our internal standards for style, maintainability, and best practices for a high-scale web environment. Maintain and advocate for these standards through code review.
