In 2017, over half the population in Sub-Saharan Africa had no bank account. That's for good reason—the fees are too high, the closest branch can be miles away, and nobody takes cards. Without access to financial institutions, people are forced to keep their savings under the mattress. Small business owners rely on lenders who charge extortionate rates. Parents spend hours waiting in line to pay school fees in cash.

We're solving this by building financial services that just work: no account fees, instantly available, and accepted everywhere. In places where electricity, water and roads don't always work, you can still send money with Wave. In November 2017, we launched a mobile app in Senegal for cash deposit, withdrawal, and peer-to-peer and business payments. In 2019, we expanded to Cote d'Ivoire. Now, we have millions of users and are growing fast. Our goal is to make Africa the first cashless continent. And that's where you come in....

How you'll help us achieve it

We're looking for someone excited to roll up their sleeves and jump into launching and growing Wave in new markets. In the initial few months, you'll own all aspects of launching Wave and be supported by Wave's product, engineering, and people teams. 

Here's some of what that will involve:

  • Own the process of growing our user base from week to week
    • Recruit and train agents in strategic locations
    • Convince the people around them to try Wave
    • Solve any problems that arise until they love our product
    • Build a growth team to repeat steps 1-3 in more and more places until we're an unstoppable force
  • Hire people to build up and manage the following teams
    • Growth team - acquires new users for Wave by adding agents and convincing users to try them.
    • Cash management team – makes sure our agents always have enough cash to do any size of the withdrawal.
    • Agent management team - trains and monitors new agents and warns and fires underperforming agents.
    • Customer support team – assists customers and agents over the phone with any issues/questions.
  • Build the business partnerships needed to launch operations

This isn't a typical 9 am - 5 pm role. For example, on some days, you will be at a port early in the morning speaking to fishers. On other days you'll be visiting offices to rent or carrying out phone interviews. 

That being said, it's a marathon, not a sprint! We care deeply about our employees and want to make sure you take the time off you need and take care of yourself so you can be your happiest and most productive.
