Senior Analytics EngineerM-KOPA
M-KOPA is looking to welcome a Senior Analytics Engineer to join our Analytics Engineering team. You will multiply the effectiveness of everyone in the data science, bi and engineering teams by creating and maintaining the data infrastructure and systems that our analytics workflows are built from. Our vision is to be the smartest company in Africa and you will play a crucial part in that.
With over a million customers across multiple geographies, our data is essential to both everyday operations and business decisions. Analytic engineering at M-KOPA is new and evolving, sitting at the intersection of Data Science and Analytics, Reporting and Data Engineering. Your contributions will be key to ensuring our data science and analytics activities can scale with the rich, high volume datasets generated by the M-KOPA ecosystem. We are looking for someone who is familiar with and understands the requirements of analytic workstreams while bringing engineering best practices and rigor to build robust systems and processes.
Ultimately the responsibility of the Analytics Engineer is to be an Enabler; to build systems and processes that provide reliable and easy access to our data and enable the wider data team to work more efficiently.
Below are some examples of how this can be achieved:

At M-KOPA, our aim is to increase access to life-improving technologies at huge scale. We do this through an innovative credit model – pay-as-you-go asset financing – of which M-KOPA was an early global pioneer. With offices in Nairobi, Kampala, Lagos, and London, M-KOPA serves over 1 million low-income households in Sub-Saharan Africa. Since its commercial launch in 2012, M-KOPA has made its name in off-grid solar power, providing customers with solar panels and solar-powered lights, televisions, radios, fridges, and more – this is often our customers' first access to electricity.
M-KOPA's affordable credit model can also be applied to assets beyond off-grid solar power, and in 2019, we began providing credit for smartphones, which enables our customers to move from feature phones to smartphones and improve their connectivity, communication, and information access. Today, smartphone financing is a rapidly growing business line – with enormous opportunities for innovation and increasing our customer impact.
M-KOPA currently employs over 1,000 full-time staff across its operating countries. We value progress, innovation, pragmatism, collaboration, and – most of all – our customers. We have been well recognised for our pioneering business model and scale.
