Who we are
An African technology company
We create opportunities for entrepreneurs to get paid and be more successful. Every day, we break down barriers and create access so that more businesses can participate in the economy and thrive.
A builder of new markets
We're establishing new markets; building business tools and financial services that work for entrepreneurs. We're making payments accessible for small businesses – often for the first time.
The future of payments in Africa
We've raised over $100M from some of the world's leading technology investors, who have backed companies like Nubank, Square and Stone. Now they're backing us to get South Africa – and eventually the entire continent – paid.
Home to a new generation of leaders
Our company's growing fast. We have an amazing team of developers, artists, connectors and enablers building purpose-driven careers. Join us!

What Yoco does?
That's up to you.
Growing the economy through technology
We go deep and solve tough problems so that our merchants can focus on what they do best – growing the economy.
We build mobile apps that power small businesses and help them get paid. Created with cutting edge technologies like Swift, Kotlin and React-Native.
Our powerful payment processing backends move money fast. This means our merchants can run their businesses without worrying about the layer beneath.
Our data platform is designed not only to enable the business to make decisions, but to empower merchants and their customers too.
The Yoco Formula
We talk to each other. About work and other stuff. We care.
Keep it simple
Complexity sucks. For us and our customers. We don’t need it.
Master your craft
We pay attention to the details and try to improve every day.
Make space to explore
Our merchants aren’t in an office. They’re out in the world.
Perks of the job
Be part of something meaningful
Your work will challenge you. It’ll make real change. We don’t sell card machines; we break down barriers for small business.
Joining Yoco means being yourself and doing work that matters to you. No timesheets and no micro-management.
We embrace brilliant misfits from all over. Our distributed-first approach means working from home, our office or the beach!
Balance between work and life
You get 24 annual leave days. Up to 4 months parental leave. And contribution to medical aid, life insurance and retirement annuity.
