TooMuchWifi Careers

Network Operations Engineer

TooMuchWifi delivers premium internet affordably to low income populations in developing economies; our initial market focus is the urban informal settlements surrounding Cape Town and Johannesburg.

We’re not a traditional “low-cost internet provider” - this isn’t about internet handouts, limited bandwidth, bad user experiences or walled gardens. It’s the internet, delivered fast: just the way you’d want it delivered to you with world class customer service and a deep sense of accountability.

TooMuchWifi was founded by people passionate about technology and social justice with a global track record of delivering services and technologies to new markets and a shared mission for bridging the digital divide across the world. We are currently looking for a key member that will pull together a customer focused response to all the commitments we have everyday.

Personality, initiative, passion and humility will make up for gaps in specific experience: you are *not* expected to arrive with all the right answers, you *will* be expected to leverage past experience, research and iterate on best practices and implement tailored solutions.

Key Trait: A passion for solving problems, and a deep fulfillment derived from building things properly.

Job Description: Work with the CTO to extend and improve the network, coverage and performance.

Our Mission is to quickly and responsibly build a profitable network of access points providing human-centered design solutions to the under-connected urban population of South Africa.

As a network operations engineer you will be responsible for the proactive management of the networks, and the implementation of tools to monitor and plan improvements.
