We're a product focused company on a mission to build the best payment experience in the world.
SnapScan is the most popular mobile payments app in South Africa, and shows no signs of slowing down. Our solutions facilitate a variety of payments: in-store, online, and even bills, donations, or prepaid services from within the app.
Founded in 2013, SnapScan originally flourished in coffee shops and at weekend markets. The founding team had extensive experience in banking and mobile money, and knew that payments for these merchants could be greatly improved.
Interest in the product grew organically and culminated in SnapScan winning the MTN App of the Year award in 2013. Since then we've been featured in local and international media (CNN, BBC, CNBC, TechCentral), and continue to grow year-on-year.
How We Work
We value openness, psychological safety and proactiveness. You will have plenty of opportunity to mentor and learn from others as we all grow.
SnapScan has always relied on small, cross-functional teams to get things done. We believe that it delivers stronger results than those delivered by bigger teams. You will join a small, highly leveraged technical team that has buy-in and autonomy to solve problems using whatever tools and means are fit for purpose.
We like to keep it simple:
- coffee with one of our engineers (we're surrounded by some of the best coffee shops in Cape Town)
- onsite technical discussion (don't worry, you won't have to solve arbitrary algorithmic problems)
- lunch with your potential team mates
If the chats go well, we'll make an offer. Simple as that.
