Internet TV company ShowMax has set up its East Africa headquarters in Nairobi to support further expansion in the region and the firm is in the process of recruiting for a number of new roles based in this office.
The new office will support growth both in Kenya and in the wider East Africa region as ShowMax continues to expand to new countries with a tailored, localised service.
“One of the keys to business success in Africa is recognising and catering for the differences in each market. In our view it’s essential to tailor content, functionality, and partnerships to the needs of consumers in each individual country. Our new office in Nairobi forms the heart of our operations in East Africa and is key to this localisation strategy,” said Chris Savides, Head of ShowMax Africa.
The firm says it aims to competitively be plugged-in at the heart of digital entrepreneurship in the region and is looking forward to learning from and hopefully contributing to the business community in Nairobi.
ShowMax is currently recruiting for a number of roles to be based at the new office including:
The firm will be based at the Nairobi Garage, which was set up in early 2012 and now accommodating over 100 businesses.
ShowMax was launched in 2015 and is part of Naspers, a global internet and entertainment company and one of the largest technology investors in the world.
