About Us

Taptap Send is VC-backed (including by Reid Hoffman), rapidly growing and a great place for those looking for both impact and a fast-paced tech startup environment. Read more about the journey in Reid Hoffman’s words.

Our product is an app-based solution that lets migrants send money back home to emerging markets instantly and at very low prices. Since launching in summer 2018, we’ve already moved hundreds of millions of dollars and reached hundreds of thousands of customers. We’re live in seven European countries, and we support payments into Senegal, Mali, Guinea, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Zambia, Kenya, Madagascar, Bangladesh with lots 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 addition to Reid Hoffman, we are backed by Canaan, Flourish Ventures, Helios and others. Our team is based across London, New York and Paris and 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, Google, Yahoo, Amazon, McKinsey, Bain & Co, 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 start-up environment.  We have competitive salary and great benefits, and we were recently rated one of the best companies to escape to by Escape the City's "Escape 100".
