Credit Analyst job at M-KOPA



About the Organization:

M-Kopa is an African connected asset financing platform that provides underbanked customers in Africa to essential products including solar lighting, televisions, fridges, smartphones & financial services. M-Kopa was launched commercially in 2012 and is headquartered in Nairobi.

Job Description

Working as a Credit Analyst within our FinTech Repayments and Portfolio Group offers the chance to collaborate with colleagues based in Europe and Africa solving real world problems that have a huge scale of social impact across Africa.
In contrast to other analyst roles at M-KOPA, that focus on understanding what did or will happen, the role of a Credit Analyst is to answer the “why did it happen” and “what should we do” questions. Which we bucket into three areas:
· Deep dives
· Testing ideas
· Modelling
This role requires a swiss-army-knife skillset as you will jump from one problem to the next and quickly adapt to different datasets, modelling paradigms and commercial contexts.
At M-KOPA we use the latest technologies and tools to build fantastic customer experiences with a socially and environmentally conscious mission that echoes throughout the organisation.
