At Wadi, we are building Africa’s foremost and leading research-resource platform by connecting Africa’s STEM researchers to the resources they need to conduct cutting-edge research with convenience.
Research has long been the bedrock of innovation and development of nations; however, Africa contributes only 1% to global research output, which explains why it lags in terms of scientific and technological advancement.
To increase Africa’s contribution to R&D, we have developed a product, “PublishIT”, that provides technical support for African researchers to publish their works seamlessly in peer-reviewed international Journals. We also have in the pipeline, SendSample, a product that connects African STEM researchers to equipment nearest to them using a geolocator feature, to have their samples analysed conveniently.
As a result, we are recruiting a dynamic and experienced Graphics Designer who can use colour, text, images, and symbols to aid our company’s design process and make our messages more comprehensible to our target audience.
