JumiaPay is an online payment platform, deeply integrated with the rest of the Jumia ecosystem, the leading E-Commerce platform of Africa.
As an Engineering Manager, I was responsible for the “Business Team”, which was dedicated to building tools for the Merchants that use JumiaPay as the payment provider for their shops.
Some of the work included:
Define the global architecture and technical vision of all the services owned by the team, following a Microservices-oriented architecture.
Work closely with the Product Owner to help shape the product roadmap, mostly by analyzing the possible technical challenges of a feature and proposing solutions and also by providing some high-level estimations of the effort required to build each feature.
Support and mentor other team members, including doing presentations to share knowledge, Code reviews, pair programming sessions, 1 on 1 feedback sessions, and more.
Responsible for the evaluation process for all the technical team members (Developers and QAs) and defining team and individual KPIs.
Doing interviews both for Porto and Egypt offices, with the goal to build a 2nd team.
