You'll spearhead the product development for a digital bank that is uniquely positioned to be among the biggest digital banks in Brazil, focused on providing simple, fair and accessible financial services to the micro-entrepreneurs, unbanked, underbanked or those that simply are not perfectly served by current market offerings.
