Transforming payments at a global scale.

Brazil is a leading market in the payments industry, with a solid ecosystem that allows the growth of options for purchases that are unique in our country.

The goal of the João Pessoa office is to manage our Payments solution and payments systems integrated with our platform in order to make them reach a world-class standard when it comes to security and usability, besides exploring ways of implementing the technologies that are trending in Brazil, like PIX and the future open banking system.

To deal with the main opportunities presented by the local and external payments ecosystems, we need to partner up with professionals who are passionate about this subject and want to be part of the global advancements that are going to happen in this market in the following years. For this hub, we are looking for professionals that want to work in a multinational company with the autonomy to create global impact solutions and with proven experience in areas such as Product Management, Design, and Technical Operational Solutions.

João Pessoa, in the state of Paraíba, is a stellar city with bright professionals.

From its high quality of life to the low cost of living (compared with other capitals in Brazil), João Pessoa is part of a group of cities presented as ideal for people who want to move into places with a country environment but, at the same time, desire to have easy access to the amenities that are common in metropolitan areas.

We also have a long-term relationship with the state of Paraiba. Since 2018, we have partnered with the Universidade Federal de Campina Grande (UFCG) to boost the technical skills of its students.

We could strengthen our ties in the region from this partnership and make this office our 3rd biggest hub. The professionals who work here help us create technologies that ease the payments processes globally.
