Our mission
 

We're making Africa the first cashless continent.

 

In 2017, nearly 60% of adults 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 are looking for people to join us who are excited about a challenge and are passionate about Wave's mission; dynamic and out-of-the-box thinkers who are ready to do whatever it takes to achieve our mission of making Mali cashless!

We're looking for a high-energy, and resourceful Public Policy Manager excited about getting things done. As we rapidly scale our business in Mali, you'll be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with stakeholders (especially financial sector partners). 

 

In this role, you will:

  • Working closely with the Central Bank and our bank partners to meet requirements
  • Manage the relationship with Wave's stakeholders, including telecom operators, banks, and third-party suppliers (e.g., for bill payment) to ensure that Wave's service level agreements are met
  • Networking to build partnerships for Wave
  • Provide reporting data required by Wave's partners
  • Develop and update presentations for partner meetings
  • Take notes in partner meetings and share relevant information with key individuals
  • Accompany Wave partners on field visits to meet our users
  • Build and strengthen relationships with the banks, telecom operators, and businesses that Wave needs to succeed
  • Develop presentations, proposals, and source partnerships.
