Taptap Send is VC-backed (including by Reid Hoffman), rapidly growing and a great place for those looking for both impact and a fast-paced tech startup environment. Read more about the journey in Reid Hoffman’s words.
Their product is an app-based solution that lets immigrants send money back home to emerging markets instantly and at very low prices. Since launching in summer 2018, they’ve already moved tens of millions of dollars and reached tens of thousands of customers. They’re live in seven European countries, and they support payments into Senegal, Mali, Guinea, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Madagascar, DR Congo, and Bangladesh; with lots more countries launching soon.
Global remittances account for over $500 billion annually, most of which moves back into developing countries. But the market is dominated by traditional services that are expensive, can take days to arrive, and have limited reach in rural areas. They’re helping people to send that money instantly and securely at a fraction of the cost.
In addition to Reid Hoffman, they are backed by Canaan, Flourish Ventures, Helios and others. Their team is based across London, New York, Paris and Brussels and they pride theirselves on hiring exceptional talent — their team members come from a wide variety of top-tier tech companies, professional services firms, and industry leaders, including Twitter, Yahoo, Amazon, McKinsey, Bain & Co, KPMG, Cravath, Slaughter and May and Vodafone.
To continue their rapid growth, they’re looking to bring on people who are passionate about their mission and excited to work in a small start-up environment. They have competitive salary and stock options and great benefits, and they were recently rated one of the best companies to escape to by Escape the City’s “Escape 100”.
They are looking for an extraordinarily driven individual to help them hire star candidates and deliver a first-class employee experience.
