About Us

We’re building products to improve the lives of people in emerging markets by connecting them to global payment networks.

In many of the countries we work in, digital mobile money services like M-Pesa have become a vital part of the financial system. The Segovia payments platform enables enterprise customers to send money to mobile money networks across Africa. We help non-profits provide assistance to people living in poverty, agricultural firms pay farmers for their crops, and gig economy startups pay workers – and there are many more opportunities for impact.

We recently joined the Crown Agents Bank (CAB) Group and are a small US/UK/East Africa-based team looking to hire people who are excited by our mission and share our values. We offer competitive salary and equity compensation, flexible hours, and great medical, dental, and vision benefits.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

  • Project manage a wide array of stakeholders to ensure customers see value from our product as soon as possible
  • Care for a portfolio of customers in partnership with relationship managers

  • You have some experience with programming and data analysis, for example Python, R or SQL
