Careers at Zazu Africa

We are distributed team, between Europe and Zambia and are always on the lookout for inspired people. 

When we look at the current state of financial services, we see systems that are too rigid and not fit for purpose. Zazu's vision is to create the most helpful digital money account. Ever.

Across Africa, there are 500 Million people who are unbanked. Which is ridiculous because technology should be used to close this number down. This is why we develop fun experiences that teach people about finance. Our wallet is connected to an app showing users where & how money is spent. 

We believe that when you can manage your finances with confidence and ease, you can do better for yourself and those around you. That's why we created Zazu: the helpful money app.

Our app helps people take control of their wealth, by showing them where and how money is spent. But we also realise that being banked is a small part of the problem. We develop unique content that is available on any device, teaching anyone, how finance really works. This year, we are teaching up to a million people about money. And we are now launching our banking app.

Zambia is our launch market, but our product can work in any market across the world.
