Tushop Freelance Designer Job Vacancy in Kenya


We are searching for a stellar Freelance Designer.

Who we are: Tushop’s mission is to reduce the cost of living for Africans, together. Tushop is made up of an impact-driven team striving to build something of value in this world.

  • and we help young entrepreneurs who run cyber cafes, beauty shops, and kiosks to provide more value to their customers. We help anyone who buys food to be able to do so more cheaply and conveniently.
  • And we help our own employees learn what they want to learn, build what they want to build, and become who they want to become (and get paid doing so!)

Our Core Values:

Reliable, Innovative, Customer-centric, Ambitious, Do right by others (RICAD)

1. We find reliability sexy. Our colleagues and customers know that we get things done, well. We know that we are reliable by being excellent and consistent executors.

2. We are relentless in our pursuit of innovative and simpler ways of doing things. The status quo is never
good enough. The only constant is change, and we seek it always for the better.

3. Customers are at the center of what we do. We think hard about how we can delight customers in big
and small ways. We obsess about customers’ experiences and don’t expend energy on bureaucracy,
politicking, or competitors.

4. Ambition is our fuel. We think big but know that everything starts small much like the oak tree that starts out as an acorn. We want to build big businesses and have big impact. We build with scale in mind.

5. We do right by others because we want to have a net positive effect on those around us – employees,
peers, managers, customers, suppliers, farmers, Community Leaders, citizens…and we take this seriously.
We realize that sometimes doing what’s right might not be the most popular choice.

We also realize that we might not always get it right, and in such instances, we take pride in course correcting.

Why Tushop?

If you’ve ever been curious to see the initial days of a company and be part of that story, then this is your chance. Since we are at an early stage, you will be able to see and feel the direct impact of your work. You will have ownership of your tasks and you will not be micromanaged.

You will make things happen. Lastly, you will work with a fun, fast-moving, customer-centric, reliable, and supportive team.

Why not Tushop?

  • We experiment a lot. If you like dotting all your i’s and crossing all your t’s before making a move, then you might not enjoy working with us.
  • We are low-ego individuals. If you need praise, need to always be right, or need someone else to fail to feel self-worth, this role is not for you.
  • We believe that fieldwork makes the dreamwork. We don’t hide behind laptops every day; we instead thrive by engaging with customers, suppliers, partners, and teammates on the phone and in the streets. (We find it invigorating – and hope you’d find it that way too!)

If this sounds like a place that you are looking to work, then come join us: APPLY HERE.

If not, then please share this JD with someone who might be a great fit (and become our customer!)
