Mobile Stack / Back-end & DevOps Stack – Water Energy For Food (WE4F) | Berytech

May 04 2022


WE4F is a joint international initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the European Union (EU), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of the Netherlands, Sweden through the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Announced at World Water Week 2018 and launched at Social Capital Markets 2019 signature event in San Francisco, California, WE4F aims to:

Increase food production along the value chain through a more sustainable and efficient usage of water and/or energy.

Increase income for base of the pyramid women and men in both rural and urban areas.

Sustainably scale innovators’ solutions to meet the challenges in the WE4F nexus.

Promote climate and environmental resilience and biodiversity through the sustainable, holistic management of natural resources and ecosystems.

As part of its growth path, one of SOWIT’s goals is to increase customer acquisition and farmer adoption of its technology across Africa. SOWIT’s technology and services are provided through mobile and web applications. To achieve this goal, SOWIT aims to enhance the Back-end & DevOps stack of its mobile and web applications. The mobile application of SOWIT helps farmers make decisions on the ground based on insights and plot mapping while the web application plays more like a dashboard enabling most advanced farmers and enterprises to step back on the season. This should enable the backend of the application to run smoothly and effectively and the front end to become as easy as possible to use by customers. The ultimate objective is to have an effective on-boarding of new customers as well as high retention of existing ones due to a fast and easy-to-use application. All work should take into consideration that targeted customers include Base of the Pyramid (BoP) farmers as well as women who might not be at ease with using the web or phone-based applications. An optimized architecture will enable SOWIT to serve its customers with near real-time service delivery and provide its services through partners based on APIs.

Optimizing mobile stack (Android/Kotlin, room database, retrofit, map box) and enabling more responsiveness and fluidity;

Improving back-end & DevOps stack (Django / Django Rest Framework, Postgres SQL, Docker, GIT), implementing architecture improvements and conducting unit testing;

Supporting SOWIT development team to ensure better code review, unit testing implementation, best practices, app optimization (loading times, caching etc.)
