Flutterwave & Capgemini to launch engineering mobility program in India
By Gloria Mathias
Flutterwave, Africa’s payments technology company, has announced its plan to launch an inaugural Engineering Mobility Programme in India with the support of Capgemini.
Flutterwave’s Nigeria and UK-based engineering team will work with Capgemini’s technology talent in Bangalore to share industry best practices and nurture the next-generation workforce. This collaboration will see Capgemini draw upon its deep domain expertise to enhance Flutterwave’s product delivery via a new cloud service provider.
Capgemini will help lay the foundation for Flutterwave’s agile transformation journey and the adoption of cloud-native solutions, enabling a vision to facilitate payments in emerging markets.
Gurbhej Dhillion, Flutterwave’s Chief Technology Officer, said, “This engineering mobility program is the first of its kind in Flutterwave, and I’m happy to see it happen. It goes beyond collaboration with a global tech leader like Capgemini; 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.”
“We are very happy to work hand in hand with Flutterwave for this talent development program, 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, said, “Since we started in 2016, Flutterwave has been on an incredible journey of growth, innovation, and outstanding performances, which includes the fivefold increase in usage of our remittance product, Send App by Flutterwave, and offline solution, Flutterwave POS, respectively, in just one year. Behind this success is our world-class engineering infrastructure and an amazing team that has been growing and adapting to rapid changes in the company’s needs and customers’ demands.”
“Now, as we continue expanding our operations, penetrating new markets, and entering important partnerships, scaling our Engineering Team also becomes crucial. Our Engineering Mobility Program is a fundamental part of this effort, and we are convinced that working with Capgemini will make this a reality,” Bode added.
