Why Kibanda Topup 

We are venture-backed and growing fast. We launched less than 1 month ago and we are already serving hundreds of restaurants. You get an opportunity to jump onto the rocket ship near the ground floor. We believe that: 

  • Our team should grow as fast as the company. If you do well, you will have every opportunity to rocket ship your career
  • If we win, our team should win. Company shares are a key part of the compensation for all mid-senior hires
  • Speed is a Virtue. We make decisions quickly and are not afraid of failing. We prioritize learning by doing
  • Everyone is an owner of their work. We do not micromanage, only challenge. We let you own your domain and drive your work independently.

If that sounds exciting, great! Kibanda Topup may be the perfect place for you. But, Kibanda Topup is not for everyone. 

  • We are an early-stage start-up. It may be chaotic at times with shifting priorities 
  • This is not a place where we will tell you exactly what to do. You will be expected to manage your own work to achieve the outcomes
  • We love being around our customers. If you enjoy sitting behind a desk all day, this may not be the best place for you.
