Who we are

At Okra, we are building the tool that will usher in the 5th generation of FinTech in Africa. Our thesis is simply the fact that — financial innovation cannot exist without the right infrastructure (data). Essentially, how far the African Fintech industry can grow is intrinsically tied with the success of an infrastructure like Okra.

A broad audience interacts with Okra and relies on our API and payments platform to build and grow companies of all types. 

We’re looking for a Content Marketer who can help us tell the story of how Okra’s products enable businesses to build the tools to create digital experiences for the internet economy.

  • Partner with the Business Development team to set goals for content engagement and identify opportunities to amplify and syndicate our content.
  • Think globally as we work to expand our solutions around the world, building a content strategy that is inclusive and scalable.

What you’ll need: 

  • A love for writing and distilling technical concepts into clear and engaging written materials

  • Deep empathy for users and the ability to adapt how you communicate to best reach and engage your audience—from developer to CFO—and differentiate Okra. 
  • 3+ years of direct, growth-focused experience in digital marketing, consumer tech and startup experience preferred.
