This quote from Lungisa perfectly sums up how we look at product development. We’re pretty obsessed with customer-centricity and making sure we put entrepreneurs first in every decision we make. As a Yoco Product Developer, you speak to our customers, our support and operations teams, and even run support yourself from time to time. It also means we build tools and choose technologies that scale as our business and our customers’ businesses grow. We’re not bound by one way of doing things – we’re flexible and adaptable.
It’s this thinking that drives us to undergo extensive beta testing with every new product we launch. This allows us to refine and improve our offering using constant feedback from the people who will be using Yoco in their businesses.
Our team of product heros has grown quite rapidly in number in the past few months, and we’ve had many new awesome additions. Get to know the new and old faces below.

Lungisa aka Dennis
Andrew aka Snowdog
The most important thing he’s learnt along his journey is not to avoid complicated problems by only working on things that are easy and within your comfort zone. Outside of the office, Andrew enjoys running, hiking and taking his puppy, Abby, for walks. He is also a big fan of Mexican food.
Altus aka Lunchmaster
Because he’s often pushed outside his comfort zone in many ways, Altus has learned more at Yoco than any other time in his life (his exact words, we swear we’re not making this up). Outside of the office Altus loves to run and hike, is an avid boardgamer, and is quite the craftsman – he made a chicken hat especially for AfrikaBurn.
Mandisa aka Panda
Understanding the needs of the people using your product is one of the key things Mandisa has taken away from her time working at Yoco. She’s learning that starting and running a business can be made easier if you have the right tools and resources. Mandisa also has quite a creative side and loves to create art in her spare time.
