Why Mama:

At Mama Money, the customers & communities 1 we serve are at the heart of all that we do.

We bring our authentic 2 selves to work where we are free to express our diverse identities while staying true to what we believe in and how we feel. Part of that means being able to have difficult conversations when necessary but always remembering to do so with trust, respect and a positive mindset 3. Being open to receiving feedback and understanding how this helps us evolve and grow is essential to succeeding in our environment.

We are responsible 4 for ourselves, our behaviour, our delivery and our output. Although we always aim to move things forward and get $hit done, we start small – taking it step by step and always look for ways in which we can improve. We know from experience that when we work together 5 towards a common goal, we can achieve anything.

Mama Money is a special place because we care. We care about our customers, we care about the people who work for us and we care about the impact our work has on the world. There are things that we don’t care about too. Things like bureacracy, discrimination, ego, titles and silos. We’re a friendly bunch who don’t take ourselves too seriously but we do take our work, and our customers’ hard earned money, very seriously.

Mama’s values:

Customer & Community
Positive Mindset
