About the role

Who We Are

At R2, we believe that small and medium businesses are the productive engine of society. Small and medium businesses (SMBs) make up over 90% of companies in Latin America, yet they face a trillion-dollar credit gap. Our mission is to unlock SMBs’ potential by providing financial solutions that are tailored to their needs. We are reimagining the financial infrastructure of Latin America - where SMBs financial needs are satisfied without ever having to go to a bank.

R2 enables platforms in Latin America to embed financial services that SMBs can then leverage (starting with revenue-based financing and buy now pay later for business customers). We are a tight knit team coming from organizations such as Google, Nubank, Uber, McKinsey & Co., Mercado Libre, Globant, J.P. Morgan, Clip, and Ualá. We are backed by world-class investors such as Gradient Ventures (Google’s AI-focused fund), General Catalyst, Y Combinator, Femsa Ventures, PayU, among others.

As a VP of Product, you will lead a team of product professionals responsible for solidifying our product vision, defining the product strategy, and advancing the product roadmap for the entire R2 product offering.

What you’ll work on

  • Develop and mentor our product management team to run lean, maintain a user-centric approach, and deliver products that our customers love.
  • Collaborate across the business to set and deliver a clear, cohesive product strategy in line with our mission and culture. Develop a comprehensive product strategy for new offerings based on a deep understanding of the industry, customer demand, internal and external data, while drawing on prior experience.
  • Design and implement product development management processes and operations, provide training, reduce dependencies, remove blockers and align stakeholders.
  • Planning and execution of all product launches and feature releases from discovery to successful products that solve real user pain points.
  • Measuring Success: Set clear goals and define key results. Regularly check in on progress, learn, adjust, then learn some more. Measure and report on product/feature usage to inform business plans.
  • Co-own the revenue and growth targets with our Engineering and Partnerships heads.

Who you are

  • You have an extensive experience leading product teams in a fast-growing fintech company -
  • Have a demonstrable track record of defining and executing business objectives through product development and delivery
  • You have built a complete product/key features from ideation through launch, feedback, iteration, and success.
  • You have developed compelling high-level visions but focused on the smallest detail of product design as well.

  • You are an excellent communicator who thrives on really understanding people and problems and guiding teams to build solutions.
  • You enjoy being close to customers and becoming their voice within our team.
  • An inspiring manager who knows how to grow talent and get the most out of your team.
