Diversity. We're proud of our diverse workforce - we are nearly 50% women at every level of the organisation (a rarity in the fin-tech space), from nearly two dozen countries across Africa, Europe and North America, and pride ourselves on creating a work environment that embraces and celebrates diversity not only in labels like ethnicity and religion, but diversity in personal experiences and professional work styles. This is really important to us because we need a wide variety of perspectives and approaches in order to create and market the most impactful products and services for our diverse set of global clients.
Work-Hard, Play Hard Culture. BitPesa has spent the last 6 years shaping and embedding the following core values into our culture: Accountability, Customer-Centricity, Flexibility, Resiliency, and Teamwork. On one hand, we value high-performance and place a strong emphasis on concrete results by using the OKR methodology to set quarterly goals at the company, team, and individual level. We regularly celebrate employees' achievements on slack, on our BitPeople calls and at team retreats. A work-hard, play hard culture is important because we want our employees to feel recognised and rewarded for their accomplishments while enjoying the work that they do every day.
