Are you a master multi-tasker with excellent writing skills and design sense?

We are growing rapidly: student enrollment increased by 1,200% between
2015 and 2017 and revenue grew by 650% in 2017. In 2017, the New York Times described ALU as one of ‘8 places in the world where history is being made’, and in 2016, Fast Company named ALU the ‘third most innovative company in Africa’ while CNN described ALU as the ‘Harvard of Africa’.
