Job description


We are the leading one-stop-shop for branded payments, making online recharge possible for anyone, anywhere at any time — whether you or someone you love needs credit for calling, gaming, entertainment or money. This is your chance to join an ambitious scaleup in a state of rapid growth; we’ll push you to develop yourself and help you create a real impact in your role. Put simply: we could write history together.

We won’t bore you with a corporate spiel about how we might be taking on the world of branded payments (spoiler: we are). Instead, we’ll let the numbers speak for themselves: $70 million in funding (and counting!), 40%+ growth in 2021, projected $560 million in sales in 2022, 3.0+ million active customers, a presence in 180 countries and 25 markets, a team of 140+ employees and 35+ nationalities, and 1 person missing — you.

We’re on the hunt for the hungriest and most passionate talent out there. If at any point your brain screams “I want in!” while you’re reading this, then consider this the sign you’ve been looking for: we want you too.

Above all, your work will impact the way the world experiences branded payments.

You’ll be working on a variety of the services, tools and components and will be actively involved in all aspects of development. We’re a very collaborative team, we highly value initiative, enthusiasm and passion for building high-quality software. The problems we are solving are complex, so resourcefulness, desire to learn and willingness to change are a must.

We work with agile methodologies with emphasis on developer empowerment and teamwork.
