Product & Engineering Jobs at Stears II

Product & Engineering Jobs at Stears II
In God we trust, everyone else must bring data

Most people agree that there is an information gap in Africa. Poor data collection, disinformation, misinformation, lack of funding for academic research and limited availability of data are manifestations of this issue. A few weeks ago, our Head of Data Advisory & Research, Michael Famoroti, spoke to Quartz Africa about this problem.

However, most people are familiar with only one way we tackle this problem; through Stears Business, a business publication committed to high-quality journalism. But, we are also tackling this information gap in other ways; for instance, our election centre—a data visualisation project, which turned out to be Nigeria's first live election database.

We have been building Stears Data, the data analytics & advisory division of Stears and the team responsible for the Stears Election Centre. Stears Data is a team of economists, data scientists, engineers and product designers who are committed to providing high-quality demographic data and excellent data advisory services to companies working in Africa.

Regardless of focus area, Stears is committed to solving the same problem—the information gap in Africa. So as long as this issue persists, media publications like Stears Business will be devoured by readers, and data teams like Stears Data will have new ground to cover.

So, if you want to be part of a bright team solving one of Africa's fundamental problems, see if one of the roles below applies to you:
