CHANCEN eG - Imagine a world in which everyone is at liberty to further their education and develop their full potential.
CHANCEN is a Social Enterprise with an innovative and entrepreneurial approach to tertiary education finance. With our impact orientation, we ensure our products are fair and ethical. We believe financial
solutions should be transparent and contribute to the development of the next generation.
We consider the whole ecosystem - the quality of education, sustainability and innovation of partners, employability and personal development of our members.
CHANCENs ISA (Income Share Agreement) is not just a financial model, it’s an integrated financial and career services backed by technology.
We are currently financing >600 students at 30 selected education partners in Germany and at medical schools in other European countries with 15 million euros. Our non-profit subsidiary, CHANCEN International gGmbH, offers the model in East Africa and currently finances 1,300 students in Rwanda.
By 2030, we will enable 200.000 individuals to further their education and increase their opportunities.
To enable this growth, we depend on scaling technology with which we can manage and automate our processes. Therefore, we are expanding our own Salesforce in-house team in Rwanda to speed up the development of our existing Salesforce Platform and meet the demand of our German operations. We are looking for a technical lead to help us make our vision a reality.
Your future tasks
So far we have been working with an external service provider to develop our Salesforce platform and portal. Now we will build up our own team in Rwanda together with you and internalize the
development. You will play a central role in this:
• Together we will build a powerful team
• You will lead this team as Technical Lead Germany
• Together with our team in Germany, you will discuss requirements and architecting solutions from a technical perspective for our business needs within the possibilities of Salesforce.com
• You implement solutions yourself and manage the implementation by your team
• You ensure the quality
• You optimize our development environment and development workflows
You will work extensively with our team in Germany to discuss problems and solutions together. The actual implementation will be taken over by your team in the long run.
An extensive induction phase with mentoring by the previous agency is planned. Even though many arrangements will be made remotely, you will be in regular personal contact with the German team on site.
