How we work

At pawaPay, we hold a deep belief in the power of our people to shape their work environment and exercise autonomy over their roles. Remote work lies at the heart of our culture, seamlessly integrated with our core working hours synchronised across African and European time zones.

And there's an exciting twist: We defy traditional workplace rules. Instead, we establish crystal-clear expectations of success while granting our team the freedom to conquer challenges in their own exceptional way. All this in a diverse, supportive, and transparent environment.

What we believe in

Autonomy & Responsibility

We believe that autonomy creates ownership and respect, and helps us build a strong organisation.

We push decision-making out into the branches of the company where the knowledge sits and accumulates.

We take responsibility for our roles and choices and understand that our actions are important to everyone else in the organisation.

Transparency

We believe that transparency creates clarity, trust, and accountability, and helps us make the best decisions while moving fast.

We communicate openly and honestly, sharing all business matters with the whole organisation in public, and assuming the best intentions in every interaction.

Reflection

We believe that reflection creates opportunities to grow and learn, and helps us continuously improve.

We take personal initiative to learn, to be informed and to gain new knowledge and skills. Most importantly, we learn from our own mistakes, share them widely and see failures as valuable lessons that push us forward.

Us in numbers

Each one of us brings our unique blend of awesomeness, from our personality quirks to our impressive skill sets and mind-expanding world views. Together we're unstoppable!

What our people say

“Ever since I joined pawaPay I have felt a sense of involvement. Not only have I seen the business grow astronomically in the time I have been here, but I have also developed relationships with departments internally to achieve our company wide visions & values. I have never worked at a company before which listens to it's staff and actively makes those changes to provide a better workplace for all. No matter how big or small your concern, it is always heard and acted upon. We pride ourselves in having open communication for all and it makes such a wonderful working experience. I am so excited to continue to grow with pawaPay, sky is the limit.”

Keisha Mushi
Country Manager - Tanzania

“Joining pawaPay on its mission to improve financial inclusion was a no-brainer for me. With 5 years of closely collaborating with MNOs in Africa and having lived on the continent myself, I got to witness the daily challenges people and businesses encounter with money transfers. Given my extensive experience in the mobile money industry, pawaPay offered me the chance to lead the operations and support team. What I love most about pawaPay is the dedicated team of like-minded people tirelessly working towards common goals and ensuring flawless mobile money payments.“

Mikk Palmoks
Head of Operations

"I love working at pawaPay because its an opportunity to participate in solving important problems for our Continent, Africa, that then allows businesses to seamlessly reach customers across Sub-Saharan Africa. As we solve the Continent’s problems, there is a strong internal commitment to align on what the problem is and this enables the organisation pull in one direction. Teams are then allowed latitude to creatively provide solutions to the problems with real support from the leadership and the wider organisation. This makes problem solving collaborative, fun and fulfilling."
