Here at Moko, we INSPIRE…
No Nonsense: We know the only way to get better is to be honest with each other and ourselves. We value open, direct communication and transparency.
Supportive: You’ve heard there’s no “I” in team, right? We know that there is strength in unity so we stick together to achieve our goals.
Passion: Great achievements are always fueled by great passion. Our success is founded in the deep passion we have for accomplishing our goals.
Initiative: We take charge, and make things happen. We know how to get results. We don’t wait to be told; we do what we gotta do to get the results we need.
Real: We’re the real deal. Our customers are our #1 priority and we never do anything that isn’t in our customers’ best interests.
Enthusiasm: We love happy customers! It’s our mission to create a world of smiles—one sofa and mattress at a time.
Joining The Dream Team
We’re obsessed with building a fantastic place to work. When we find a great fit between a candidate and a role, coming to work is both a joy and an opportunity for growth. To get that perfect fit, we need to get to know you well, and help you understand how you’d fit into our team. Because of that, our hiring process goes beyond just your experience, we use evaluations to dig deeper and help us understand how you approach your work.
Joining a new team is a big decision, you spend almost as much time with your colleagues as you do with your family, that’s why Moko’s hiring process is a type of courtship♥. Here’s what to expect as we answer the question – is it a match made in heaven?
The initial step of the process is more general as we look for cultural fit and general qualities. We’ll ask you to tell us a bit about your experiences and help us understand how you solve problems. This is done totally online at your convenience, allowing you time to interact with the interview materials and think through the evaluations - this lets us learn more about you than the on-the-spot pressure of a normal interview. Plus, it avoids the hustle of asking our candidates to travel from all sides of Nairobi (or further) for multiple interviews.
Role specific competenciesAfter establishing there’s a cultural fit, the process gets more role-specific. You will connect with a hiring manager who will have a custom path to you and the role that will include a combination of working on an exercise together, live discussions, and spending time in our office doing a task with the team- this will provide an opportunity for you to meet some of your future colleagues!
A courtship is a time investment on both sides – the reward is the chance of joining a team where all your colleagues have been chosen with such care. So, bring on your passion, bring on your talent and bring on your dreams!

We’d love to hear from you!
Moko is known to bring a special touch to all we do, and our recruiting process (read courtship) is no exception. We know that sometimes the process of knowing each other can be a little awkward but we want you to enjoy it as much as we do. Tell us what you loved and what wasn't so rosy through firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can make the ride better.

At first, we’re just getting to know each other. So, the initial stages are more general as we look for cultural fit and general qualities.
As the process advances, it gets more role specific. Together, we’ll analyze the role you would best fit in to help us steer the Moko spaceship to infinity and beyond.
We only ask candidates to provide general, basic information and only what is relevant to the interview process. In the later stages of the
interview courtship, we’ll ask you to do a work performance test to understand your capabilities for the position you are interviewing for.
We provide a diverse range of evaluations. Some are imaginary challenges we’re yet to face while others are challenges that we have experienced in the past but have since found and implemented their solutions.
Because of Moko’s rapid growth (yaay!), we constantly have additional openings for the same role. E.g. we already have Operations Officers but could re-advertise the position to boost capacity in the Operations Team.
Sometimes, due to the nature of the position we’re hiring for, it may end up taking a couple of months before we can get the right person for the job. Great things take time, you know!
We use the email addresses provided by the candidates at the time of application to communicate the interview progress. Errors in submitting this mean that we’ll not be able to communicate with you. But hey, to err is human. To follow up on this, please write to us with your correct email address and phone number via firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s like a piggy bank, but for talent. Our Talent Bank is a list of candidates who we feel have potential to be strong members of our Dream Team if the right role becomes available.
Without getting any hopes up, we want to communicate to candidates who stood out and hope they'd be willing to pick up the conversation in the future if the circumstances are right.
