Careers at Stitch
We’re an API fintech startup on a mission to make it easier for businesses across Africa to build, optimise and scale
Culture & Values
We’re a passionate, collaborative and quirky team, and we’re always working to enable the best possible environment so all Stitches can succeed.
We believe that creating a space for active inclusion of underrepresented groups and individuals is critical for the innovation that our ambitious mission requires. As we build for a continent of 54 countries, diversity in background, belief, and identity is a core ingredient in our work. We create an environment that enables all team members to succeed by celebrating the traits that define us individually.
Stitch benefits are designed to enable all members of the team to work at their highest potential, including generous leave, fully reimbursed equipment and assets, health insurance, and ample opportunities for professional development.
Equity in the business
Fully reimbursed equipment
Free team lunches
At Stitch, we prioritise attracting, retaining and nurturing the best talent. We value connections built over shared experiences – from meals eaten together, to regular team retreats and activities, to after-work climbing adventures and frequent pick-up soccer matches.
At Stitch HQ, we also gather for free team lunches daily – and the door is always open. All are welcome, including friends and family, investors and clients! However, we also work hard to ensure those working remotely enjoy a similar experience and remain included – we even reimburse employees for their internet expenses.
Backed by the best
Stitch is a venture-backed startup, and we’ve raised $21 million in funding to date. Our network of global angel investors spans founders and founding team members from some of the most successful fintech companies in the world, including Venmo, Klarna, Monzo, ComplyAdvantage, TrueLayer, Flutterwave, Plaid, Revolut and more.
We’re also supported by leading global venture capital firms, including firstminute Capital, PayPal Ventures, Raba Partnership, CRE Venture Capital, Future Africa, Rally Cap Ventures, Musha Ventures, Village Global and more, bringing backing from LPs such as Bill Gates, Eric Schmidt and Jeff Bezos.
This means we can ensure all employees are empowered to do their jobs, and it gives us access to a strong team of industry veterans that can offer insights and connections to help us grow.
The future of fintech
We’re excited about what the future holds for fintech in Africa, and we’re passionate about helping the companies we work with to succeed in any way we can. This ethos extends to everything we do at Stitch – from product brainstorms with our customers, to co-marketing efforts, to the best client support in the business. We always go above and beyond for our customers, ensuring Stitch is the best possible partner as we grow alongside them.
Where you’ll find us
We’re currently live in South Africa and Nigeria: our HQ is in Cape Town. We have offices in Johannesburg and Lagos and operate a remote-flexible workplace that is increasingly globally distributed. We might even be opening up an office near you soon!
