  • Build & refine strategies, processes and tactics to improve group performance and efficiency

We think you have:

  • Bachelor degree required

  • Driven, self-starter with a passion for excellence
  • Comfortable with ambiguity and with working in a fast-paced, always-on, start-up environment

We would be impressed if you have:

  • Experience in a high transaction volume software application or financial services. Experience in Payment industry is a plus
  • Fluency in English and at least 1 more language (Portuguese or Spanish preferred)
