Senior Accounts Officer


Who are we

“There are 2 billion adults worldwide who don’t have a bank account. That’s close to 40% of the world’s adult population. 350 million of them live in Sub-Saharan Africa. They are hardworking, young, connected adults that lack access to the traditional banking system. Fido is changing that.

We are empowering individuals and entrepreneurs to take advantage of opportunities in Africa. The latest innovation from Fido called Fido Score will shift power back to the people by empowering them to build and maintain a digital financial track record. We build consumer products powered by a magical cocktail of real-time mission-critical machine-learning models, behavioral psychology, and financial engineering. We promote meritocracy, act quickly, commit, and worship data.
