The Finplus Group is a technology company providing specialised technology solutions for enterprises in the financial sector. We have offices in Nairobi and Johannesburg.
Finplus was founded in 2017 to address the crucial problem of Financial Exclusion, which is arguably one of the biggest challenges of our time. Over 2 billion adults globally are financially underserved according to the World Bank and over 65 million MSMEs face a financing gap of $5.2 Trillion each year in developing countries, despite creating 90% of all new jobs. We believe access to financial choice or opportunity should not be a privilege, but a human right available to everyone, everywhere, who wishes to participate in the modern economy and we are working to make this a reality. Instead of creating our own fintech to deliver financial services directly to underserved populations, we opted to white-label our technology platform to existing & new financial services providers, combining our technology expertise with their domain expertise in finance to tackle the problem.
Finplus creates 'fintech' software for easy management of digital finance operations at scale. Our platform makes it easier and significantly more cost effective to launch or grow Digital Financial Services in any market by automating significant parts of a financial service provider’s front & back-office operations. Our software handles all the heavy lifting so our customers can focus on their core business and serve as many individuals or businesses as possible, with universally accessible offerings & faster, more innovative service delivery methods. In this way we enable these crucial services to touch the lives of ever more people, first in emerging markets, then around the world.
Treat others as you would want to be treated.
Do what is right, not what is easy or convenient.
Knowing is not enough. Seek to understand.
Anticipate, embrace and catalyze the change.
Waste is the enemy. Always aim to do more with less.
Build it to help others, then make sure it outlasts you.
If the company is the machine that builds the machine, then our company culture is the operating system. Nothing is more important. This is what defines us.
We are passionate, ambitious people, crazy enough to believe we can change the world and determined enough to actually do it. We live by our shared values. Placing ourselves in others' shoes and making a sincere effort to do the right thing even when it is difficult. We always seek to understand what lies beneath the surface and become agents of positive change in the world. We aim to give more than we take and produce more than we consume. Perhaps most important is the fact that we are consumed by a burning desire to create something that will help others and still be here long after we are gone.
We do what is best for our customer and their customers. Always. Can it be better? We find a way to make it so. We first communicate openly, respect and support each other - then we collaborate.
We endeavor to create a great place for brilliant people to do work they love with people they trust. Where valuable ideas prevail over titles or agendas and the limits of what we can achieve are defined only by our imagination. A place where we can all collectively put our dent in the universe.
We are always looking for exceptional people to join our ranks. If you are one of us, you’ll know by now - but for the sake of being thorough, here’s what you can expect (over and above your pay).
