Our merchant partners include your favourite food delivery services, whether you’re ordering in or using a meal kit, travel services that can help you book your next getaway adventure and even your neighbour’s side-hustle e-commerce store.

For these partners and their customers, we aim to provide delightful experiences that make it as easy as possible to facilitate online payments.

We're specifically looking for Product Managers for Commerce, Subscriptions and Merchant Journey, that'll contribute to the direction of our digital payments platform, engage with our customer base directly, and decide the future of the product by working closely with key partners. This opportunity will provide hands-on access to building a modern scalable payment infrastructure across an entire continent.

Our teams currently work remotely 

Due to the effects of Covid 19, our teams are currently working remotely.
If you’re currently not working remotely or never have, we’ll set expectations of what this looks like at Peach, during our interview process.

In a nutshell, time- and self-management skills are going to be vital. Other considerations are access to a desk or workspace, internet access and I guess a good supply of fresh air and coffee or tea - whatever gets you through your work day. ‍
