About Us

Looking to use your engineering and management skills to help make the world a better place? We’re building products to improve the lives of people in emerging markets by connecting them to global payment networks. 

In many of the countries we work in, the majority of people don't have a bank account, so digital mobile money services like M-Pesa have become a vital part of the financial system. The Segovia payments platform provides a web app and developer API to send money to mobile money networks in 11 countries and counting across Africa. We help non-profits provide assistance to people living in poverty, agricultural firms pay farmers for their crops, and gig economy startups pay workers – and there are many more opportunities for impact. 

We’re a small New York/London-based team and are looking to hire extraordinary people who are excited by our mission and share our values. We offer competitive salary and equity compensation, flexible hours, unlimited vacation, and great medical, dental, and vision benefits.
