That's an interesting one, and I can't say for sure. However, a couple of months before my first anniversary at Reblaze, I started to compare career paths in cybersecurity and fintech. For some reason, the thought of switching to fintech came up because, from the outside, it looked fast-paced, and I loved that. Thankfully, I was not disappointed.
The People, the Vision, and the Culture. The people are super friendly and willing to help at every point, and everyone understands the importance of their role and how it fits into a collective in driving growth. Collaboration is super easy, and the culture makes tasking work fun and fulfilling at the same time.
Benefits and perksAt Okra we work smart and play hard. We provide a flexible and conducive work environment for individuals to deliver their best and reach their maximum potential.
Health insuranceEvery employee is entitled to paid health insurance.
A hybrid workplaceSome employees prefer to get their work done remotely, others prefer to work around team members - we make room for both!
Flexible working hoursWhile working hours are set to align with the hours at our HQ in Nigeria, we encourage our team to work at a schedule that blends with their lifestyle as long as they are responsive, reliable and productive.
Referral BonusWhile we provide an incentive for anyone on the internet to refer great candidates within their network to Okra, we prioritise candidates referred by our team members.
Yearly Offsites/RetreatsEvery year, we will slow things down for a time at the end of the year to reflect, bond and strategise as a team. As our mission is inherently to transform the African continent, we want to explore various parts of Africa together.
