    Project Lead

    The opportunity

    OfferZen has partnered with Investec to make programmable banking a reality in South Africa. This empowers our developer community to innovate in the traditionally inaccessible FinTech space and grow the economy. We are a small team that runs a number of cross-organisational projects to help us promote programmable banking as well as drive community engagement and business adoption.

    We need a non-traditional Project Lead to jump in, get their hands dirty and help us figure out, plan and execute on these projects that drive our partnership goals.

    What you’ll do 

    • Own (execute and manage) the roll out of cross-organisational projects, ensuring that they maximise partnership goals

    • Continuously refine and create systems and processes to help deliver on our partnership goals

    • Keep all stakeholders in the partnership up-to-date through continuous, clear communication including weekly OfferZen updates

    • Generate awesome quarterly reports for Investec which effectively showcase the work we have done as well as the value it creates for the partnership, community and Investec

    • Manage weekly cross-organisational project management meeting, sharing notes and keeping track of all action items

    • Effectively manage the end to end creation and distribution of awesome community and programmable banking content to drive our partnership goals

    What you need to be very good at 

    • Strong project management: plan, brief, coordinate and execute on cross-organisational projects

    • Stakeholder management and relationship building: strong interpersonal skills and the ability to effectively manage relationships with a range of stakeholders, understanding their needs and maximising the benefits of working together

    • Excellent communication: effective and professional communication of information and ideas in verbal and written format, including report writing. 

    • High work ethic and detail-focused: goes the extra mile to ensure things get executed on a consistent basis and nothing falls through the cracks.

    • Accountability: you’re not afraid of being held accountable or holding others accountable

    • Structured and process-oriented: you work in a process-driven manner and quickly create systems to support the processes

    Your background

    • Degreed or a good reason for dropping out

    • 3+ years experience working as a non-traditional project champion, lead or manager

    • Experience working in a startup environment, ideally tech

    • Advantageous to have experience managing cross-organisational projects or partnerships

    What it’s like to work here

    We are a fun-loving and very driven team of 100+ people.

    We love to do fun stuff together. We are focused on building a connected tribe and a sense of belonging. We value unique and diverse approaches and ensure we create opportunities to share and learn from each other. We have regular online events, show and tells and a book club as well as regional and annual off-site events. 

    We're dedicated to authenticity. We treat people as people, caring personally and speaking openly. We foster low-ego behaviour - we own our mistakes as well as our victories. We're never about blame. We're always about honesty, learning and continuous improvement. We ensure lots of transparency and visibility. From OKRs and strategy to analytics and company performance numbers, it's all available for you to see and understand.  

    We're passionate about learning and levelling up. Everyone at OfferZen strives for a growth mindset. We read books, listen to podcasts, share expertise obsessively, then take on hard challenges with smart guidance and support. When things go wrong, we look for the learning and how to improve.

    We're good at remote. We have office space in Cape Town and Amsterdam but we're working remotely a lot of the time. For this role, we need someone located in South Africa. It's more fun to be near our Cape Town hub office, but we have all the tooling and processes to operate very effectively remotely.
