Head of Growth - Belgium

Brussels, Belgium Full-time

About Us

Taptap Send is an app that lets immigrants send money back home to Africa instantly and at very low prices. Since launching in summer 2018, we’ve already moved tens of millions of dollars and reached tens of thousands of customers. We’re live in seven European countries, and we support payments into Senegal, Mali, Zambia, Ghana and the Ivory Coast, with more countries launching soon.

Global remittances account for over $500 billion annually, most of which moves back into developing countries. But the market is dominated by traditional services that are expensive, can take days to arrive, and have limited reach in rural areas. We're helping people to send that money instantly and securely at a fraction of the cost. In doing so, we are working on making the UN Sustainable Development Goal of bringing cross-border remittance costs down to 3% by 2030 a reality today.

Taptap Send is a venture-backed start-up with investors including Reid Hoffman, the Omidyar Network, and the Global Innovation Fund. We pride ourselves on hiring exceptional talent -- our team members come from a wide variety of top-tier tech companies, professional services firms, and industry leaders, including Twitter, Yahoo, Uber, Amazon, McKinsey, Bain & Co, Deloitte, KPMG, Cravath, and Vodafone.

To continue our rapid growth, we're looking to bring on people who are passionate about our mission and excited to work in a small startup environment.  We have competitive salary and stock options and great benefits, and we were recently rated one of the best companies to escape to by Escape the City's 'Escape 100'.
