About Tajir

Our mission is to make 40% of the economy of Pakistan radically more efficient.

Stores in Pakistan have been buying products in the same way for nearly a century. Why should 20 trucks deliver to the same store in a single day? Why do people travel on bikes, burning needless fuel, to collect orders on scraps of paper? Why do store owners wait restlessly for someone to visit once a week to collect an order?

Tajir is a radical break from the past. We offer an app where stores can buy everything they need, delivered reliably the next day. We drastically reduce the number of vehicles on the road with efficient, centralized delivery, so both store owners and manufacturers enjoy higher profits. With $150B of purchases made by retailers annually, even modest efficiency gains have an outsized economic impact.

We are backed by Kleiner Perkins (early investors in Google, Amazon) and Y Combinator (early investors in Coinbase, Airbnb, Dropbox). Learn more about us on Forbes and Geo News.

What you’ll do

First, please review all other open Software Engineering open positions to see if any position catches your eye. If not, we know that some engineers like to define their own roles. Do you want to be both a UX designer and an Android Engineer? A Back End and Data Engineer? An ML Engineer?

If your interests don’t fit in one of our preexisting buckets, this is the role for you. Just let us know what specifically you are interested in when you apply, and we’ll tailor our process to your preferences.

What we are looking for

  • You are humble. You treat others with the same kindness, patience, and respect, regardless of seniority, class, or gender.

  • You care deeply about writing beautiful code. You are tired of working on teams with spaghetti code.

  • You are excited at the chance to meet our customers, to learn from them and help us decide what to build next.


  • 1+ years of full-time experience of professional software development (we seek all levels of experience, and will adjust our offer accordingly).

(Very, very) Nice to have

  • You have built something cool outside of university or professional life. Without exception, we have hired every engineer who has shown us an impressive personal project .

  • You have made a substantial contribution to open source code.

  • You have interviewed one of our customers in person.

Our tech stack

We do not screen candidates by their experience with a specific tech stack. If you are a great engineer, you can adopt any new tools easily!

That said, because everyone asks – our Android app is built with Java and Kotlin using an MVVM Clean architecture. Our back end is built with Python and Flask and deployed to Google Cloud as Docker images. We use PostgreSQL for transactional data, and BigQuery for analytical data.
