Who We Are

Yoco was founded in 2015, and has since processed over R100 billion in digital payments for over 400,000 businesses in South Africa. We’re breaking down barriers and unlocking economic opportunities that enable people to thrive.

We have over 330 team members across our key hubs in South Africa and the Netherlands, all with a bias for boldness, and a passion for simple, progressive solutions. We believe in uniting different people to solve hard problems together.

Our mission of making society more equal takes a variety of people, with different backgrounds and points of view, so we can keep building solutions that work for and include everyone.

Yoco is growing, and as we grow we have compelling challenges ahead of us.

Growing means we’re enabling more self-employed people and businesses to thrive every day. It also means that ambitious problem-solvers with big ideas are challenged, stimulated and will thrive at Yoco.

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

Grow With Us.
