About Tugende

Tugende is a for-profit social enterprise based in Uganda. Our mission is providing finance and support to help the self employed own income generating assets. Our core product is a lease to own model for motorcycle taxi drivers (boda bodas) who own their own motorcycles in 20 months or less with weekly payments similar to what they otherwise pay to rent indefinitely from informal landlords. Ownership significantly increases income, job security and road safety.

Tugende currently serves over 6,000 active customers in Uganda through 150+ employees across 7 branches, and 5000 additional leases have already been fully repaid.

With a market for motorcycle taxis of over 800,000 drivers in East Africa alone, Tugende is expanding rapidly in our core product. We are also building a platform with our staff, branches, data, systems, and deep knowledge of earners in the informal sector, which will easily enable us to expand into other asset finance and value added services offerings in the near future.

About this Role:

We are looking for a highly motivated, self-driven professional to bring the Tugende brand to life through dynamic storytelling to advance our mission, fundraising, marketing and impact goals. Tugende’s mission is focused on people: “Helping people help themselves”.

The Video Editor/ Motion Graphics Designer leads video production efforts from concept delivery to produce videos that authentically tell the Tugende story. The ideal candidate is comfortable editing a wide range of video-content, creating motion graphics to enhance content, and act as an independent videographer and shooter as needed.

He/she handles all pre-production, production and post-production tasks. He/she is charged with building and managing the video asset collection. He/she brings a wide range of video and motion graphics expertise for online and social media content and brings new thinking to the team by experimenting with new formats and styles.
