The successful candidate will ideally be physically located within the GMT -3 to GMT +3 timezones.

  • Support merchants by investigating and solving technical issues.
  • Create product demos and proofs of concept that demonstrate Paystack's ability to solve a wide range of merchants' business needs
  • Communicate data-driven insights, recommendations, and merchant feedback to relevant internal teams to influence product development and developer relations efforts.
