Description de l'offre

Compliance Lead
at Wave Senegal
Dakar / Senegal

Our mission
The problem: 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.

How we're solving it: We're building financial services to work as they should: no account fees, instantly available and accepted everywhere. In places where electricity, water and roads don't always function, we're creating financial infrastructure that "just works." In November 2017, we launched a mobile app in Senegal for cash deposit, withdrawal, and peer-to-peer and business payments and in August 2019, we expanded to Cote d'Ivoire.
Our goal is to make Africa the first cashless continent, starting with Senegal and Cote d'Ivoire.
That's where you come in...
