Flutterwave announced in a statement on Monday that its Nigerian and UK-based engineering teams will collaborate with Capgemini’s tech talent in Bangalore to share industry best practices and groom the next-generation workforce.
The statement disclosed that Capgemini will use its deep domain expertise to improve Flutterwave’s product delivery through a new cloud service provider.
Capgemini will in addition play a critical role in Flutterwave’s technology strategy by establishing a defined target-state and a detailed roadmap.
The digital transformation consulting firm will also assist in laying the groundwork for Flutterwave’s transformation journey and the adoption of cloud-native solutions, enabling the growth of payments in different regions.
Gurbhej Dhillion, Flutterwave’s chief technology officer, said, “This engineering mobility programme is the first of its kind in Flutterwave. It’s about diversity, inclusivity, and the mobility of ideas to fuel continuous innovation.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how our engineers will take their learnings back home and share their experiences with their teams as they continue building payment solutions for the emerging economies of Africa and beyond.”
Flutterwave’s chief people officer, Mansi Babyloni, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to empowering its people, saying, “As an ever-growing company that is becoming increasingly diverse, this programme is a testament to our responsiveness to our talent’s needs, dedication to making improvements, and commitment to investing in our people.
“It also underscores our commitment to developing talent and contributing to the growth of Africa’s tech sector.”
“Like every other person in our senior leadership,” Mansi continued, “I have first-hand experience of how cross-border work experiences and programmes like this could contribute significantly to shaping one’s career, and I’m happy that we are providing our engineers with this life-changing opportunity.”
“We are delighted to collaborate with Flutterwave on this talent development programme, accompanying them on their journey towards innovation in the new ultra-competitive payments landscape,” said Sujit Kini, global account executive, financial services at Capgemini.
Bode Abifarin, chief operating officer at Flutterwave, added: “Now, as we continue expanding our operations, penetrating new markets, entering important partnerships, scaling our Engineering Team also becomes crucial.
