Title: Tech Team – Fullstack Engineer (Remote)

Location: Cairo EG

  • Cairo, EG / Gaza, PS-Remote
  • Full Time

Your Role

As one of the first engineers at a growing startup, you will build our tech product from scratch. You will be closely involved in determining which features we build, how we design the user experience, and how we design the architecture.

Technical skills (required):

  • Write high-quality, maintainable code with unit, integration, and end-to-end tests.
  • Experience collaborating with a team on a shared codebase.
  • Work with the latest technologies such as Javascript, Typescript andNode.
  • Comfortable working on both front-end and back-end technologies.
  • Focus on business value. You don’t want to simply complete tickets, you want to understand how each ticket gets us closer to our goals.

Technical skills (not required):

  • Next.js knowledge
  • RDBMS experience (PostgreSQL preferred)
  • AWS services such as Lambda, EC2, and S3

Soft skills:

  • Remote: You have experience working on effective remote teams & thrive in such environments. You work well across time zones (e.g., you communicate effectively via asynchronous oral & verbal channels).
  • Ability to handle ambiguity: we’re an early-stage startup which means the roadmap will change
  • Execution/project management: As a small startup, we depend heavily on each person to be reliable and effective. You get things done efficiently and accurately, with little need for supervision. You use tools like Jira & remember everything that needs to get done.
  • Collaboration/team player: You can work effectively with other people at Manara. For example, you partner closely with our sales leader who manages our hiring partner network to make matches between our participants and companies. You collaborate with our training/program manager to develop new training programs based on what you see posing challenges for our job hunters. You roll up your sleeves to do the unglamorous work or support a team member when needed.
  • Growth mentality: You love learning, are hungry for feedback, and can quickly learn new things (process, technologies, etc.)
  • Passionate about Manara’s mission of creating a community that unlocks the full potential of top tech talent in MENA (with a focus on Palestine & women)


We are a fully remote team, so you can be located anywhere. For this role we are primarily recruiting from the Middle East & North Africa but we are open to any location.

Our team today is spread between San Francisco, Berlin, Istanbul, France and Palestine. Our US team travels regularly to Europe (including Eastern Europe) and MENA, and we plan to do an annual meetup for our global team.
