Software Engineer (Python)

BuffaloGrid·Belfast/Remote·£25 - £35k


About BuffaloGrid

Nearly 1 billion people lack access to reliable power, and yet an estimated 70 percent of the same people have access to a mobile phone. For many, getting their phone charged and connected to a network is a daily challenge. Without the ability to connect, these phone users are unable to take advantage of digital services that could improve their quality of life.

We want to see everyone connected and we want everyone to have an equal opportunity to be included in the digital world. That’s why at BuffaloGrid, we are working to help the next billion get connected and stay connected.

We are supported and well-funded by some of Europe’s best VC funds and have received grant funding from Invest NI, InnovateUK, EU H2020, and Microsoft.

Our Northern Irish based team is made up of experienced innovators and technologists who care about delivering high-quality products that will have a positive impact on people’s lives. We value clarity in design, communication, and intent. We are committed to building useful things and we lean on the principles of domain driven design to build well thought out solutions to the problems that we seek to address.

You will be using the latest trends in technology to bring digital services to the next billion people.

Applicants living in Northern Ireland will be given preference as we hope to return to our office in Belfast in the future. However, remote applicants from any compatible time zone will be considered as we will all be working remotely for the time being.
