What can we tell you about this special business?

Our client is backed by top VCs. It is rapidly growing and a great place for those looking for both impact and a fast-paced tech start-up environment.

Launched in 2019, the business is tapping into a transformative shift in global finance: from banks to phones. While this has affected wealthier countries as well, it has been nothing short of a revolution for the emerging markets where the overwhelming majority of population had been unable to access digital finance previously.

You will be someone who rolls their sleeves up and is a good executor and communicator. We are looking for someone that wants to grow and lead their own HR function.
