Cashlet is a fintech company focused on helping people save, invest, manage and grow their money in the simplest way possible. Founded back in 2019, we use a fully mobile-based app, focused on helping you achieve your financial goals by giving you a platform that allows you to start with as little as Ksh. 500. You have the power to control how much you save, and where to invest and grow your balance.

About the Role

  • Have experience on Version Control Systems such as Git


  • Firm grasp of the JavaScript and/or TypeScript or ClojureScript language and its nuances, including ES6+ syntax
  • Knowledge of App store release processes
  • Ability to write well-documented, clean Javascript code
  • Rock solid at working with third-party dependencies and debugging dependency conflicts
  • Familiarity with native build tools, like XCode, Gradle
  • Understanding of REST APIs, the document request model, and offline storage
  • Experience with automated testing suites.


  • +2 year experience at React Native

  • Familiarity with React best practices surrounding state management, component design and functional programming paradigms
