Join Paystack and help power growth
for a new generation of businesses across Africa.
Paystack’s mission is to accelerate digital commerce across Africa. We do this in partnership with our customers, who represent some of the most forward-thinking organizations on the continent. To do this, we’re rewriting much of the fundamental infrastructure that underpins how trade happens.
While we’ve had significant early success, it’s still very much day 1 at Paystack. We have a thrilling amount of opportunity ahead of us to quite literally transform how commerce happens across the continent. And we need your help.
Paystack is a mission-driven company, which means that we find ourselves returning to a similar set of questions in everything we do. If you already find yourself thinking about a few of the following questions, chances are high that you’ll love your work at Paystack.
This is something we’re focused on almost to the point of obsession. It’s the foundational question that informs everything from product to marketing strategy.
How do we make it so that if someone has an idea, they can bring it to market as quickly as possible? And once a product or service has traction, how do we help apply more rocket fuel? How can we help our family of merchants become profitable, envied, and loved? How can we help them win?
Paystack is expanding into numerous African countries, not for the thrill of planting our flag, but because of what this will mean for cross-border trade.
Today, it’s easier for a Nigerian customer to purchase clothes from Europe than it is for them to do business with a merchant in nearby Togo. Why is this? And how can we fix it? How can we help a merchant in Ghana find their customers in Cote d’Ivoire? How can we help a merchant in Kenya find their customers in South Africa?
When Paystack helped make automated recurring billing mainstream in Nigeria, it made possible completely new business models, such as digital subscriptions for media companies.
Which other industries can we help create on the back of new technology? Which new frontiers would merchants in Africa pursue, if they had better tools?
Lots of value flows through the global economy every day, but most Africans are cut off from this wealth-creation engine. How can we help African merchants find their customers internationally? In fact, how can we help African businesses go toe-to-toe with the best companies in the world, and win?
At the same time, teams all over the world are building amazing productivity and life-enhancing tools and services, but African customers can’t take advantage of those tools because much of our financial infrastructure is cut off from the global economy. How can Paystack serve as a bridge between Africa and the rest of the world?
One of the biggest limiting factors to the growth of our business, as well as our merchants' business, is talent. But there're hidden gems all over the continent. How do we reliably discover them?
And then once they join the team, how do we intentionally empower and invest in them to do the best work of their lives?
In addition to a competitive salary, here're a few resources we offer to help our team excel.

We’re a deeply mission-driven company, and these are the core ideas we return to when we make decisions.
Share your work often. Openly seek critique. Have the difficult, honest conversation as soon as possible. Get it off your chest
Simplify - refine ideas until they’re easy to explain. Say exactly what you mean. Take care to confirm that you’ve been understood
Love your teammates and our customers (even when they make it hard). Bring positive vibes. Be generous with "thank you” and “sorry.” Lift people up with respect and empathy. Take care of yourself
Remember that merchants are trusting you with their livelihoods. Please give this responsibility your very best. Don’t pass the buck - take ownership of your responsibilities, think three steps ahead, and follow through. Be a domain expert your team can rely on. Deliver consistent excellence, and require it from others.
See every situation as a learning opportunity. Experiment and make new mistakes. Strive to get a little better at something, every day
Find the joy in everything :). This thing is bigger than all of us. Celebrate the wins, and cherish both the lessons, and the people we’ll meet along the way. Be brave. Banish fear. Have fun. ❤️
