  • Uber – Two higher positions with this ride share company, which has operating in Kenya since the beginning of 2015. The only private company on this list (no social purpose/mission).
    • General Manager

  • Employers engaged in social innovation, and regular posts on working within that sector – follow Amani Institute’s Facebook page – some jobs have more of a global focus, but Amani is based here in Nairobi, has a strong network and regularly places its fellows in internships here, and so their resources are heavily centred on Nairobi.
