We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone has access to liquid capital, free money transfers, and saving & investment opportunities. If you're curious about Fintech or emerging markets and have a passionate, hardworking spirit, work with us and let's put opportunity in everyone's pocket.
