JOB LOCATION: Lagos
- We’re looking for someone to lead the design and architecture of building our new E-commerce Platform. This platform will handle e-commerce tools, tax/duty calculations, subscription management, and storefront capabilities for our own internal brands for millions of visitors a year.

A successful candidate should be able to work with other engineers on the team and should oversee that the technical velocity + code quality are properly balanced throughout the building phase of the project.

- We are a big fan of product-minded engineers who can tackle problems without the need for overly scoped out guidelines. We love engineers who put importance to the value of the features that are being built, and a successful candidate should not only be able to execute the project scope given but also ideate with the product owners & engineers on the team. While technical ability is very important to engineers at Pangaea, we expect this role to also be a team lead whose responsibilities often extend beyond purely technical ownership.
