Posted on Tuesday, October 19, 2021
In 2017, our founders started Sarwa due to a lack of financial services offered to most of the world, and out of a need to help empower people in the region to invest in their financial future. Sarwa is poised to continue growing into the go-to platform for people to grow their wealth.
We do this through expert, affordable and easy investing. We're a small team working on the region's first and fastest growing investment and personal finance platform, making investing easy, low-cost and transparent, with a human touch woven into every step of the process.
We are a remote-first team. Where you choose to work is up to you — we have an office in Dubai and Abu Dhabi that you can utilize as often or little as you'd like.
We're looking for an experienced Devops Engineer who is interested in building the foundations of a platform used by thousands to manage their financial lives. In this role, you will work alongside the engineering team to build and maintain Sarwa's cloud infrastructure and integration pipelines.
