About Revio

Revio connects merchants to consumers to power the next generation of inclusive commerce. We are on a mission to become the go-to payment orchestration and revenue optimization platform for global and local enterprises operating in Africa.
Through a single API, Revio localizes merchants’ payment stacks, reduces payment failures, and automatically engages customers throughout the payment journey, to increase conversion, success rates, and retention. We currently serve some of Africa's largest brands in the insurance, banking, telco, retail, and BPO sectors, including Old Mutual, Standard Bank, MTN, and Innovation Group.
We're backed by A+ global investors, including QED Investors, Partech, and SpeedInvest, bolstering our team with industry legends that will help us build a successful multinational company.
Our team join us to make a difference. We’re a team of makers, excited by the opportunity to build a business, not just work for one.
All of our positions are remote, with hybrid options available. You do not have to relocate to join us! We encourage folks from all ethnic groups, genders, sexuality, age and abilities to apply. If this job description resonates with you, we want to hear from you.

Your focus

Revio's Payment Orchestration platform makes it possible for merchants to accept payments across Africa with multiple localized payment methods, augmented with intelligent transaction routing, retry, and failover workflows.
