Company Description

Co-creation Hub is a social innovation centre dedicated to accelerating the application of social capital and technology for economic prosperity. The technology hub is the first in Nigeria to serve as an Open Living Lab in which user-driven innovation is fully integrated in the co-creative process of new services, products and societal infrastructures. CcHUB’s methodology is hinged on engaging a community of progressive stakeholders (end-users, subject matter experts, government agencies, businesses, academics, civil societies etc.) who bring their creativity and knowledge to play in co-creating solutions to social challenges faced by the average Nigerian through our open living labs. The resulting innovations are then supported to become sustainable market solutions by providing proactive business support, advice, mentorship and funding through our pre-incubation & research unit.

Job Description

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced creative WebGL developer to join the team full time.
You would be working directly on some very novel web and mobile projects we have been quietly building.
The essence of your work is in creating original and engaging approaches to explore and interact with educative information that reveal new insights and experiences in education and learning through interactive platforms.

You should should be a creative developer who is as comfortable working on the visual and interactive implementation as the code behind it… maybe you cut your teeth in the Flash days but now live and breathe Javscript!


You should have 2- 4+ years of experience, an eye for design and enjoy spending most of your development time wrangling WebGL, sculpting shaders and juggling Javascript and CSS in a way that pushes forwards the interactive and aesthetic boundaries in the browser.
As a reference for the required skills, our current stack involves:
•    Javascript, WebGL, GLSL, SVG, canvas
•    React.js, ReactNative, Redux and Immutable.js
•    Node.js, Apollo for GraphQL
•    PostgreSQL with SQLite3 for the mobile apps
•    Testing libraries Jest, Enzyme, Wallaby, Mocha
•    Workflow processes with Git Flow, NPM, Webpack, CI etc
Being comfortable with educative mathematical concepts and a wider interest in science and the arts are great bonus skills.

Examples of previous projects using web technologies that demonstrate your creative and technical ability is very important, as is experience creating responsive and accessible cross platform websites. You should also thrive on the little details inherent in good design and user experience.
Good interpersonal skills are an absolute must. You would be expected to challenge and inspire others in the team, share knowledge and help define the future direction of the products.
