About Zepz

Zepz is powering two leading global payments brands: WorldRemit and Sendwave. We represent brands that disrupted an industry previously dominated by offline legacy players by taking international money transfers online - making global digital payments fairer, faster, and more flexible. 

Our brands currently send from 50 to 130 countries, operate in over 5,000 money transfer corridors worldwide and employ over 1,600 people globally. Zepz is a remote-first employer, with team members located across six continents. 

On the sending side, our brands are 100% digital (cashless), increasing convenience and enhancing security. For those receiving money, our brands offer a wide range of options including bank deposit, cash collection, mobile airtime top-up and mobile money. www.zepzpay.com 

 

Our Vision

A world that celebrates migrants’ impact on prosperity, at home and abroad

Our Purpose

To unlock the prosperity of cross-border communities through finance and technology

Our Commitments:

  1. We act like owners - We are relentlessly delivering for our customers and spending money thoughtfully. Our job is not to do what we can to solve a problem. It's to ensure that problem is solved. If an attempt to solve a problem doesn't work, we seek an alternative. If we need help, we request it, and, if necessary, demand it.
  2. We embrace embarrassing honesty - We function best when we're open and honest with one another — especially about our challenges and doubts. We lean into uncomfortable conversations and support our colleagues when they do the same.
  3. We have a bias to action - We get to the first outcomes quickly, iterate and learn. We measure our own and others’ contributions by objectives reached, not time spent. Living a full life outside of work is necessary for high achievement over the long term.
  4. We strive to be better - We may make mistakes, but always learn from them. We lean into uncomfortable conversations and support our colleagues when they do the same.
  5. We are inclusive - Both as a team and to our customers, we believe in being part of the narrative of growth for Zepz, regardless of who you are, where you are from and how you show up - as long as it is to better reflect and serve our customers

Your key areas of focus

For the first 3 to 6 months, you’ll:

  • Lead a global business development team of 15-20 people
  • Build processes that quickly identify the next 50 receiving markets we should enter and the right partners to go to market with. You’ll also ensure that those market launches are executed seamlessly on the partner side through diligent follow-up.

After that, you’ll:

  • Identify and source major partnerships to support our move into adjacent businesses and radically improve Sendwave and WorldRemit’s offering and cost structure.
  • Play a global regulatory affairs role, interfacing with partners, governments, and central banks (when required).
  • Lead Zepz’s market entry into more complex sending markets as we continue working toward our mission to make money transfers as easy and affordable as sending a text — anywhere.


What you bring to the table

  • The ability to secure partnerships. Quickly. We should feel confident in your ability to deliver the 50 markets we’re looking for now.
  • A keen strategic mind. You’ll be a thought leader for Sendwave and help shape the future of our business through the partnership opportunities you bring to the rest of leadership and those you turn away.
  • Impeccable ethics. Full stop.
  • Successful execution of complex deals across at least three continents. Including in some of the markets we currently serve.
  • Excellent management skills. You’ll be leading a strong team, and your greatest contribution will be getting the most out of those who report to you.
  • Willingness to travel. When in doubt, we hop on a plane to get the deal done.

Bonus points if you’re:

  • Experienced with remittance or payments business development.
  • Passionate about our mission.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
