Summary

What we do

Wala is building a digital bank, for the underbanked. We are building the financial products, tools, and services that customers need and bringing them to our customers for FREE. Wala believes that the cost of banking is the biggest barrier to bringing people into and keeping them in the financial system and Wala has created a solution that solves it.

Why Work For Us

By joining Wala you will become part of the only company determined to bring free banking to emerging market consumers. We have a unique view on the solution with a business model to make this happen; and Wala will only get stronger and more successful over time. And we know we're building the right solution because we have already received over 1M pre-sign-ups for the launch of the product.

Our Culture

We are a collection of people trying to solve a massive, global, and real problem. We don't accept the absurdities of the status quo and believe there is an optimal solution that should exist. We are respectful, diverse, global, and extremely intelligent. We are not the same and value the uniqueness of each team member.

Our Hiring Process

When hiring we evaluate on a few key factors and since we are a small team you will meet and have at least one discussion with each Wala team member. We look for people who are good technical and cultural fits. We also look for people who are all in for the Wala mission.
