Frontend Developer Needed at Klasha

Klasha makes it easy for African consumers to shop online. We build technology that allows African consumers to easily access the goods they want on the continent.

We enable payments online in local African currencies and can handle the last-mile logistics for our retail partners too.

Statistically, Africa is the future, so we believe consumers on the continent should have the same frictionless access to the global e-commerce economy as consumers in the West.

Klasha was founded in Lagos, Nigeria in 2018 and is backed by Techstars, Ginco Investments and a group of notable angel investors.

Klasha is run by 20-somethings from five nationalities that speak six different languages between them. Klasha has offices in Johannesburg, South Africa and Lagos, Nigeria.
