Description

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 looking for a dynamic, high-impact product manager for our core payments product management team to help extend our payment network, lead integration with new partners, optimize performance, and define and develop new features, and services. 

This product manager will be responsible for aggressively expanding our network footprint, deeply understanding the nuances of each payment experience we offer, define the integration and feature roadmap, prioritize the backlog, develop the product solution and design, and lead execution and launch end to end. 

This PM will, in addition, be leading the development of back-end services that will enable us to build additional non-payment functionality in messaging, communication, digital goods, commerce, and other areas into our APIs and into enterprise, consumer, and small-business facing apps.

Responsibilities:

  • End-to-end product management of API-based products and features including: definition, planning, specification, product development, go-live, and rollout 
  • Work with other Product Managers cross-functionally to drive excellence in our network
  • Provide day-to-day product delivery and quality management
  • Ensure awareness of product status and roadmap risks across the group
  • Drive post-launch look-backs and internal process improvements 
  • Commit to continuous improvement through metrics and user-driven insights

Requirements

  • 5+ years of product management experience in Payments, Financial Services, eCommerce, Gig Economy, or other technology company
  • At least 3 years in payments, and a clear knowledge of the payments lifecycle that drives your “Spidey sense”
  • Must be able to talk knowledgeably with eCommerce players, banks, lenders, FinTech, and clients who live and breathe payments every day 
  • Experience implementing online payments, and integrating to payment providers 
  • Experience as an Agile product owner
  • Well-developed product management skills
  • Experience integrating third-party providers and client
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science preferred, or an equivalent degree and relevant professional experience 
  • Advanced degree in CS, another engineering discipline, or an MBA is an advantage
  • Lived, worked, or studied in – or simply have a passion for – Africa
