Who We Are

Yoco is one of Africa's largest fintech companies, building an ecosystem of intuitive, dynamic payments and business tools. These connected tools are easy to tailor to diverse business needs, enabling brave businesses to do better and grow.

Founded in 2015, we now process over US$2 billion annually for over 400,000 businesses.

We are powered by over 330 people across our three talent hubs in the Netherlands and South Africa. We come from different backgrounds and have different viewpoints, so we can keep building cutting-edge financial tools for growing businesses.

We’re growing fast. With growth comes compelling challenges, which means that if you’re an ambitious problem-solver with big ideas you will be challenged, stimulated, and grow with us at Yoco. You have a passion for doing good. You’re bright and grounded, experimental and brave.

We believe growing together is a commitment and that it means being uncomfortable and overcoming problems, and when faced with such problems seeing opportunities where others see barriers. But we know it’s not for everyone.

We don’t stop pushing, we break things to rebuild, we challenge ourselves, and inspire each other. We’re constantly evolving — and we’re doing it fast.

Be Brave and Grow With Us.

About The Role

  • Ensure that our talent profile is authentically shown in our candidate communication, employer branding initiatives and approach to interviews and assessments
  • Proactively seek opportunities to improve TA capabilities as well as managing and contributing to projects across the People team.
  • Use data and insights to make informed decisions for TA and hiring teams

About You

  • You have extensive experience hiring for Product and Data roles in the Netherlands (experience in South Africa would be a plus)
  • You are a headhunter and have a passion for actively sourcing the best talent
  • You are consultative and work well with stakeholders to build a partnership
  • You are a thought leader that can drive decisions supported by data and have the ability to think deeply
  • You take a positive, proactive and creative approach to problem solving, with a strong ability for creating fair but balanced solutions for the business and TA team
  • You are self-directed, willing to experiment and not afraid to fail.
  • Experience in a FinTech or Product led organisation would be an advantage

The People We’re Looking For

We’re looking for brave people who want to grow. And as Yoco grows we hope they stay with us, long term.

Growing can be a daunting task and it’s not for everyone. We never stop pushing, we break things to rebuild, we challenge ourselves, and inspire each other to push further.

So, who are you? You’re a curious problem-solver with a passion for doing good. You’re bright and grounded, experimental and brave. You play open cards and get stuck in. You’re not afraid of change. You close the loop.
