Build, develop and grow a global community of users to drive the creation and sharing of opportunities, knowledge and social capital, at a leading African platform that connects the globe to African opportunities

Location: Global / London, UK preferred



Movemeback is a global, London HQ start-up on a mission to build a world where anyone can access opportunities anywhere. We have built the first of its kind professional and social networking platform connecting individuals and organisations across the world to career, investment and entrepreneurial opportunities in Africa! Some liken us to a cross between Linkedin, Tinder (connecting people) and Airbnb for African opportunities. Our mission is to apply modern technology to tangibly address some of the world’s largest unsolved problems, related to creating global transparency and access to unique opportunities, connecting people and forming meaningful connections for driving economic development. In Africa we have a target of contributing to the creation of 300 million jobs by 2036. In 2019, Movemeback was named one of Africa’s most inspirational and dynamic private, high-growth companies in the London Stock Exchange Group’s report, Companies to Inspire Africa.

We are building a community that will be used by and hopefully change the lives of millions. To achieve this we want people who genuinely enjoy learning, building, creating, changing and who aspire to personal and professional excellence to join us. In this role you will have exposure to the entire African continent, learning about innovative companies, high impact organisations, and the levers of social and economic development across Africa.

  • Expand Movemeback product reach
    • Deliver creative programs to engage potential users, and expand Movemeback’s product reach and use among professionals, entrepreneurs and leaders
    • Drive user growth by creating network effects and viral referral loops

Your key success measures will include value to the community, engagement across all Movemeback platforms, user growth, and referral rates
