Job Description

aystack helps businesses in Africa get paid by anyone, from anywhere in the world. Over 30,000 businesses of all sizes use our modern payments platform to collect and disburse payments, including MTN, Bolt (Taxify), Smile Communications, GIGM, AXA Mansard Insurance, and many others.

Within a little over 3 years, our close-knit team has introduced a steady cadence of innovations, such as automated recurring payments, automated chargebacks, and much more. We process over 25% of all online payments in Nigeria, and our investors include Visa, Stripe, and Tencent.

About the Media Associate Role

We’re looking for an energetic recent graduate who is thoughtful, and who has an instinct for the most interesting part of every story, to contribute their photography, videography, and audio storytelling skills to our Growth team as a Media Associate.

You’ll be part of a team that strives to empower thousands of business owners in Africa with both the knowledge and the courage they need to bring their ideas to life. If that feeling were a sound, it would sound like this.

Paystack is a group of skilled friends collaborating with ambitious merchants across Africa. This relationship yields some pretty amazing stories of impact. As the Media Associate, you’ll work with the Media Manager to capture and share the stories of growth and innovation that are happening on both sides of this partnership, and within the industries in which Paystack operates.

As a member of the Paystack team, you’ll be exposed to thousands of creators from across the continent. You’ll learn a lot about different industries, and you’ll use images and sound to help people see businesses in Africa in new and exciting ways.

This is an opportunity to work alongside a tight-knit team of creative problem solvers who’ll value you, give you the opportunity to meet high expectations, and who’ll actively create a supportive, nurturing space within which to accelerate your career.

This is a full-time role based in Paystack’s headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria.
