Chipper Cash was founded in 2018 by Ham Serunjogi and Maijid Moujaled, with the aim to  “chip away” at the problem of inaccessible financial services, a high population of  underbanked consumers, reliance on cash for daily commerce and the difficulty of cross border transactions. Today, Chipper Cash is connecting more than one million people in  Africa, one transaction at a time with an easy-to-use mobile app that makes money transfers  fast, secure and free. Whether it’s sending money home to support your family, running a  cross-border business or paying local expenses, Chipper Cash saves time, saves money,  and opens up new opportunities for Africans everywhere.

With plans for rapid expansion, the Chipper Cash mobile app is currently available to  consumers and businesses in eight countries, including Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria, UK and South Africa. Headquartered in San Francisco, California with offices  across the globe, Chipper Cash delivers fair financial services that make the lives of millions  of Africans better in a small way, every day. Chipper’s mission is to unlock global  opportunities and bring Africa together, one transaction at a time. Come join us.

Our Customer Support (CS) team is at the heart of Chipper, as it is the first point of contact  with our customers and the one who knows most intimately the struggles and hopes of  customers. Most important is the team’s ability to respond to customers with empathy and  work alongside customers to solve their problems. The CS team also works closely with the  Legal & Compliance, Product, and Marketing teams. It’s about much more than resolving  tickets. It’s about helping us also find solutions that will prevent customers from having  problems in the first place and help us deliver on the promise of Chipper working like magic.
