What we do
Mama Money provides an efficient, safe, and low-cost way for our customers to send money from South Africa to their home countries across Africa, Asia, Europe, and the UK. Rather than looking at profit-maximization, we focus on helping our customers to send money home at a socially fair price. The money is being used by their families to pay for food, medicine, housing, and education and if less money gets stuck with the money transfer operator, more money arrives in the pockets of people who really need it. It's really that simple: lower fees will lead to better nutrition, better health care, better accommodation, and ultimately, a brighter future - one that prioritises financial inclusion.
While our social business ethics form our core identity, our technology forms the basis of our operations. We are a profitable, growing fintech company providing a service that people really need and we’re looking for like-minded people to join us.

Our Engineering Processes
The engineering environment is agile and we encourage teams to innovate and improve their process to better fit their context. We aim to build small, shippable pieces of work that deliver value early and often. We have fun, try our best, aim to build the best product in the business, experiment, have a positive impact on the world around us, give back, and keep learning.
Our Hiring Process
We like to move quickly and not waste your time with unnecessary steps. After a quick intro chat, we ask you to complete an assessment (that was created in-house), and once returned and reviewed, we will set up a technical interview for you to discuss your solution and also get to know some of the team better. Following that, we like to set up a quick chat with you and one of the Co-Founders and that's pretty much it!
