Stitch is a developer-first API startup with a mission to deeply connect financial systems with the wider world. We provide an API which allows third-party apps and websites to interact with their user's bank accounts in ways that unlocks the ability for companies across Africa to build innovative technology products quickly.

Creating innovative financial products is incredibly difficult today, and we believe that unlocking the way people interact with their finances starts with enabling developers with the tools and infrastructure needed to execute on their vision.

We are looking for a talented content marketer who can help lead & define Stitch's content strategy, contributing across a number of formats & media such as long/short-form essays, press releases, blog posts, social media (Twitter & LinkedIn) and others. As Stitch is an early-stage business, we're particularly looking for someone who can think out-of-the-box and formulate innovative content pieces - such as market reports - that serve as marketing collateral.

The ideal candidate has very strong written and verbal communication skills and can think strategically about content for a complex developer product. We're looking for someone who can translate technical engineering concepts into engaging content and design an effective strategy to reach our key audiences.

The role involves opportunities to work with and learn from our expert investor network, as well as senior members of the Stitch leadership team, to craft a compelling & narrative voice for the business.
