Over 2 Billion adults worldwide are unbanked. For them, this means that it is difficult to get a loan to invest in their business, it means that they don’t have a savings account to save for a big expense, and it means that their family does not have affordable health insurance. It often means they remain stuck in poverty, vulnerable to disease, undernourishment, and insecurity.
Dot is a Nigerian/Dutch company that helps solve this problem by providing affordable financial and non-financial products and services to the underbanked and unbanked. We created a network of so-called ‘agents’ with mobile terminals as a first step. People can go to these agents to get or deposit cash, transfer money, and pay bills easily. Since the launch of our flagship product called dotPay in September 2021, over 23,000 agents are now active in Nigeria, and over 7 million customers have used their services. In addition to dotPay, we are currently rolling out our electronic banking app dotBank, and affordable insurance with dotInsure.
Building on these products, our data science team is working on AI-powered features such as recommendations for banking and risk management for loans and insurance. Our mission is to build and connect the world’s unbanked to an ecosystem of financial services and products as we know that sometimes, one single successful fund transfer is a lifeline to many on the receiving end.
It is of vital importance for our customers that these products are easy to understand, simple to use, and flawless to operate. And this is where you can play a key role as a Backend Engineer.
