TeamApt, the Nigerian fintech company that provides digital financial services solutions and payment infrastructure, has announced the launch of its first Women in Tech Internship Programme.
Aimed at university graduates with an interest building a career in technology, the six-month, paid internship has been established in a bid to address some of the gender disparity that currently exists in Nigeria’s tech ecosystem – particularly within the fintech space. TeamApt’s goal is to provide women with the opportunity to grow their skills by gaining the necessary experience to advance their careers. Applications are now open.
Successful applicants will, based on their performance and available openings, be offered full time employment within the Lagos-based company.
Founded in 2015, TeamApt has worked with a wide range of African banks and 100% of all commercial banks in Nigeria. As part of the company’s efforts to deepen financial inclusion across Nigeria, the company recently shifted its focus from delivering financial services products to banks, to delivering products for consumers and businesses. They have built on their stellar performance in 2020, recording 150% overall QonQ growth and $3.9 billion transaction value across their existing products – Moniepoint and Monnify.
Speaking on the launch and call for applications, Managing Director and CEO of TeamApt Tosin Eniolorunda says, “Many women continue to face challenges in advancing their careers in tech. While the technology industry continuously strives to bridge the gender inequality gap, female talent remains widely underrepresented in most technical roles. As an organisation, we are committed to equality and normalising the inclusion of women in such roles. The TeamApt Women in Tech Internship Programme is one of the ways we are ensuring an increase in the existing quota and provide opportunities for viable careers within the tech industry.”
Candidates interested in internships at TeamApt can find out more about available roles and apply for the programme via the TeamApt website. Applications close on Wednesday 17th March at 11:59pm (WAT) and successful applicants will be notified from Monday 22nd March.
