Note To Self Before I Apply

I did my homework and I understand that Serengeti Bytes is a small company, with the wildest dreams. It attempts to be efficient with its resources and at this moment, it will not hire a human resource professional to pursue me for what I am meant to perform.


I am an industrialist who is self-motivated and self-driven to achieve my professional and company goals. I will carry out my obligations diligently, without being bossed or hurried about, and I will notify when I need help on time. This means, I am my manager, my supervisor, my HR, and my own boss.

If I render it impossible to achieve this personal character, my engagement with Serengeti Bytes will be re-evaluated.

How to Apply

To apply for any of the above positions, send your CV/Portfolio to hello@serengetibytes.com with the subject being the title of the role you are applying for. Women are highly encouraged to apply.

The deadline for applications is June 31, 2024, 23:00 East African Time.
