Careers

 

Everylayer is bringing the next billion people online by providing affordable and fast internet access. We write software to run internet service providers, from configuring a network to managing a sales team. We currently operate an ISP based in major cities in Kenya called Surf, and intend to expand beyond Kenya soon. In a little over the past year, we have gotten over 200,000 people online.

Want to help? We have these openings:
