Flexible/remote work role
Join an experienced tech & product team
Ukufu* (pronounced oo - koo - foo) is a new AI powered content aggregation mobile application for professionals.
Ukufu version 1.0 has recently been launched for Android and iOS!
We recently closed a round of seed funding from a couple of smart and supportive investors, and we are excited for the next stage of our journey!
Watch a short message from Josephine Pinto, the Ukufu Product Manager who you will be working with:
Our mission is bold:
Build an intelligence layer around the 10 000 English news-related content pieces that get published daily. Then use this layer to power an easy-to-use category based content aggregation app that helps professionals efficiently consume content across multiple content sources.
We believe that there is a big opportunity to improve the breadth and depth of content consumption for professionals.
