Payment Integration Engineer

Lagos, NG · FT

What we’re looking for

Dukka was founded to make it easier for individuals and small businesses to manage their finances better. We have solved a small part of that problem, but our ambition is to go much further. For businesses, it is still extremely difficult to collect payments in every language, currency, payment method, and tax system. We strongly believe that everyone should be able to participate and thrive in today and tomorrow’s digital economy, and no one or business should be left out because the technology is too great or the cost is too high.

Job Description / Responsibilities

Dukka terminals help businesses extend the way they currently get paid by users. The terminal team’s mission is to make it as easy for businesses to accept in-person digital payments as it is to pay with cash. With Dukka terminals, businesses can unlock in-person payments use cases that are right for their business model - whether it’s creating a superb retail experience, extending their website to a pop up store, or enabling a mobile point-of-sale at the next event. Payment Integration Engineers of the Global R&D team will build out local payment method support for Dukka Terminal in local and international regions to continue the Terminal’s Global expansion. Some examples of the local payment methods include Bank transfers and USSD in Nigeria and mPesa in Kenya.

  1. Design, build, and maintain local payment method support and Terminal experience to unlock Terminal’s new and existing global markets
