Internship Project:

During your internship, you will work on an end-to-end project that aims at enhancing the ECM’s reporting and forecasting capabilities.

As part of our payment performance monitoring process, the Analytics team is providing, on a monthly basis, a view of the latest actual payment performance and a short-term forecast of expected delinquencies and credit losses. Your project will consist in:

  • Getting more comfortable using tools such as SQL, Tableau and Excel as you will be using these as part of your project.
  • Gaining business knowledge around Credit Card and Payment Performance monitoring as you will be dealing with industry-specific KPIs and data.
  • Understanding external teams’ focuses and priorities as these forecasts are shown to and used by multiple stakeholders across Jaja, and serve as a base to assess internal performance.

Our responsibilities include:

  • Design and monitor profitability models that ensure Jaja is taking the right decisions throughout the lifecycle of its products.

  • Monitor and forecast the portfolio performance, working closely with the New Business Origination team as well as the Collection team to make sure credit losses stay within Jaja’s risk appetite.
  • Support on initiatives driving cost reduction, process optimisation as well as business growth.

  • Self-motivated and eager to learn and apply new skills.
  • Understanding of programming languages is a plus (SQL, R, Python, MATLAB, Java, C# etc.)
