Flutterwave partners Capgemini on engineering program in India
Flutterwave has announced its inaugural Engineering Mobility Program in India, made possible with the support of Capgemini, a leading provider of business and technology transformation services. This program will bring together Flutterwave's engineering teams from Nigeria and the UK with Capgemini's extensive technology talent based in Bangalore, India.
The collaboration aims to foster knowledge sharing, promote industry best practices, and nurture the next generation of tech talent. As part of this partnership, Capgemini will leverage its deep domain expertise to enhance Flutterwave's product delivery through a new cloud service provider. Additionally, it will play a crucial role in shaping Flutterwave's technology strategy.
This strategic collaboration is expected to lay the groundwork for Flutterwave's agile transformation journey and the adoption of cloud-native solutions. The ultimate goal is to facilitate secure and efficient payments in emerging markets, aligning with Flutterwave's mission to drive financial inclusion and innovation across the African continent and beyond.

The partnership and launch of its engineering mobility program comes on the back of Flutterwave's recent expansion of its remittance product, Send App, into India after partnering with IndusInd, an Indian bank with around 35 million customers. The partnership is expected to allow the African payments giant, which is present in 30 countries, to send money from the 5th largest economy in the world to the African continent. The startup's CEO also recently said it would forge ahead with its IPO plans. Since June, Flutterwave has onboarded several new international partners and widened its market base.
