San-Francisco and Lagos-based startup, Flutterwave, might be looking to start operations in Asia.

The global payment provider is one of the few startups with significant cross-border expansion within Africa. This time, however, the startup is taking it up a notch.

A recent tweet from the fintech startup shows a list of countries where Flutterwave is looking to hire new staff.

With a presence in Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, Kenya, and South Africa, Flutterwave might begin multiple operations across other African countries like Morocco, Egypt, Ethiopia, and Cameroon, to name a few.

However, the standout names are those outside the continent. China and India, the most populous countries in Asia and the world.

The career openings in the two countries are that of an ‘Expansion Associate’ with responsibilities to manage and oversee the growth and expansion of Flutterwave’s operations in Asia.

This is just coming days after the partnership between the startup and Alibaba’s Alipay to open up Africa’s market to Chinese buyers.

The partnership between the payment giants explains the expansion to China. What is not clear though, is how this affects India.

What cannot be ignored, nonetheless, is that while there is a track of increased presence of Asian companies and technology in Africa, Flutterwave is setting a precedent with this supposed move to Asia.
