Faces of Jumia
Head of Logistics - Jumia Egypt
From the get-go I have been learning to work on complex problems with an open-minded team of peers and managers, learning in the process the best approaches for solving typical and new problems from a unique angle, an african angle. The team's passion to build a company that makes life easier for all Africans and African businesses to grow and thrive off is my number one motivation to work at Jumia.
I am a Jumia-made Supply Chain Expert! Having been with Jumia since 2014 and I am now Head of logistics in Jumia Egypt.
Campaign Manager - Commercial - Jumia Morocco
What do I love about Jumia? Growing and encouraging leadership of the company. Our belief at Jumia is that everyone can act as a leader and hold leadership functions. We welcome new ideas and execute them, test and learn to keep growing.
Holding a master's degree in logistics, I joined Jumia in 2014 as Retail Buying Operations Associate. 2 years later, we launched Jumia Marketplace and I joined that team for 2 years as Vendor Relationship Manager, then as Head of University and Communication. A few role changes later, I am in charge of campaign management.
Product Owner - PTC
My passion for technology started very early, while I was still in high school, and I consider myself very lucky to be able to start working in this area when I was only 18.
Before I joined Jumia in 2015, I was working at several different companies in the area of Information Technology, usually in a customer facing role, where I was responsible to solve technical issues and also to build a strong connection with the customers.
This was also my first role in Jumia, I was responsible for the technical support of Jumia Services. A few years later I became the Product Owner of Network and Logistics Products.
What I love most about working at Jumia is that it feels like I am part of a big family that connects people across several countries.During the past years I managed to get to know a lot of people in all of our countries and build friendships. It feels great to know that my daily work allows people to do their jobs better every day and it literally transforms lives in Africa. It makes me feel that I’m part of something big!

Outbound Manager - Logistics - Jumia Morocco
I have learnt a lot since I joined Jumia way back in 2016! At Jumia I have been cultured to think positively, do what is right not what is easy, manage a team, respect and nourish my work life balance and to be grateful and fair as a manager.
All our work and work environment culture are focused on how to satisfy both consumers and vendors and I enjoy that!
I started my professional career with Jumia as a VDO agent 5 years ago and moved to quality auditor in 2018. Today, I work as an Outbound Manager.
Marie Isidoria Monteira
Head of Vendor Experience - Jumia Senegal
I am a good listener and enjoy solving people's problems. Jumia is literally a 3.0 university where one can grow fast personally and professionally. I joined Jumia Senegal in 2018 as a vendor experience agent and took the lead of the department in November 2019 thanks to my work and professionalism.
Before Jumia, my experiences in previous companies allowed me to develop listening skills and especially the importance of teamwork, which is really essential at Jumia.
