Since 2014, Sendwave has allowed diaspora members from across Africa and Asia to send money abroad fast, saving our users over 70% relative to Western Union and MoneyGram. We’re coming off our biggest year ever, where we enabled over 30 million transactions on behalf of the diaspora communities we serve.
Despite the amazing growth, we’re still less than 1% of the global remittance market. If we want to make sending money anywhere in the world as easy and affordable as sending a text, we’ve got to scale even faster. That’s where you come in.
In 2021 we grew the Sendwave team by 135%, hiring 297 new employees across engineering, product, finance, compliance, growth marketing, customer support, and people ops. The team is more engaged than it’s ever been, with an eNPS of 50 and 94% of employees agreeing that the work they do contributes to Sendwave’s success. Yet we know the only way we’ll achieve our mission is if we can dramatically scale up our ability to hire egolessly mission-driven talent.
