Branch Warehouse Manager
About Us:
(‚Äúpeople of the market‚ÄĚ in Swahili) is transforming communities across
Africa by revolutionizing access to essential goods and services. We are
East Africa’s biggest digitized retail distribution platform powered by
our own in-house logistics network. Tens of thousands of informal
retailers across seven countries (Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Ivory
Coast, Senegal and Zambia) use Wasoko to order everyday essential goods
and receive working capital financing.

informal retailers of Africa today are the primary if not the only
channel used by consumers to purchase essential goods worth over $600
billion per year. The fragmented infrastructure across large land mass,
distributed but diverse population and rather a smaller basket size
spend does not yet lend themselves to big basket retail or mass consumer
eCommerce. Instead, the informal retail ecosystem is THE channel for
building the plumbing for digital and consumer
commerce across Africa.

is Wasoko’s opportunity. Wasoko with its brand, scale and logistics
network is best positioned to build the technology-leveraged rails to
serve the 1+ billion African consumers through informal retailers. We
are building a digital-first operating system for informal retailers,
initially focusing on B2B distribution but quickly incorporating other
tools and services to help communities across Africa get more for less.
