Who we are
Jumia was founded in 2012 on the basis of a very strong belief: Internet can improve people’s lives in Africa. Observing the challenges that people face every day (poor infrastructures, heavy traffic, limited choice, limited information, expensive products and services just to name a few), we see a huge opportunity to leverage Internet and use it to connect people and provide them with a solution to fulfill their daily needs. Therefore, we embarked on the journey to build a company that has a very simple mission: expand your horizons.
Today Jumia is Africa’s leading internet group, with already over 3,000 employees in more than 20 African countries and huge successes such as Jumia Mall, Jumia Market, Jumia Travel, Jumia Food, Jumia Deals, etc.. It is led by top talented leaders offering a great mix of local and international talents. Besides, Jumia is backed by renowned international investors (MTN, Millicom, Orange, Axa, Rocket Internet, Goldman Sachs and CDC), and was valued around $1.1 billion in the last round of funding.
Jumia’s Marketing team builds on its expertise to create engagement, sales and loyalty across all of our platforms and the numerous marketing channels we are pioneering into for Africa: digital marketing, branding & offline, PR & Communications, partnerships as well as unconventional sales channels.
Africa is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, offering excellent opportunities in a vibrant and booming environment. Its economic growth has enabled innovative businesses to flourish and this is where Jumia Group steps in.
