Africa is on the cusp of an economic revolution. While Internet- and banking-penetration have come late to Africa, a youth-driven tidal wave of change is sweeping across the continent. As a result, both global businesses and local champions are in a race to unlock its potential.      

In partnership with Rapyd, the fastest growing Fintech-as-a-Service platform, and Multichoice, the largest entertainment platform on the African continent, we are building a payments platform that is capable of meeting the ambitions of the next generation. 

This is truly the Moment for Africa.

We are building our core team in Dubai and looking for dynamic, impactful individuals who want to be part of an exciting early-stage business with big ambitions. We know from experience that it is impossible to be successful without hiring great people across all parts of an organization.
