Finance Manager

London, England, United Kingdom Full-time

Welcome to Taptap Send

Taptap Send is an app that lets immigrants send money back home to Africa instantly at very low cost. Since launching in the summer of 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 support payments into Senegal, Ghana, Mali, Zambia 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. The industry is currently dominated by traditional services that are expensive, slow, and limited in rural areas. We allow people to send money instantly and securely at a fraction of the current 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 was recently spun out of Segovia, a venture-backed startup focused on making it easy to send payments in emerging markets. 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, flexible hours, unlimited vacation, and great medical, dental, and vision benefits.
