Jason Njoku, CEO of IROKO just raised the bar as an employer. He is seeking to build a large team of Product, Design and Engineering geeks and make one job seeker a millionaire per month.
Based on the premise that consumer internet companies are only as good as their product managers, engineering talent and design aesthetics, Jason submits, “If we get everything right, yet fail at that, then we fail as a company”.
According to a new post on his twitter timeline and personal website, Iroko is seeking to employ coders and engineers:
“We are going to try and build a large PDE team in Lagos. Our current senior engineers sit in New York. For us to be successful, we need to connect the reality and nuances of Nigeria (and Nigerian) viewers to building world class applications for Africa. So we are hiring. 20+ roles in fact.”
Njoku believes that Iroko can pay “market or above market rates to attract the best developers in Lagos and Nigeria.” As a sweetener, he adds, “..every month, I will give N1m prize to the highest scoring test result, whether they choose to join IROKO or not. ”
