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.

We integrate with some of the largest technology platforms in Latin America and embed tailored financial services that SMBs can then leverage. We’re a data-first company. Data is the core of our product and the lifeblood for all of our decision making. Data engineers sit at the helm of R2 by building the systems that enable new financial opportunities to thousands of small businesses across Latin America.

Who you are

  • You have deep software engineering skills, with extensive experience (3+ years) working in Python.
  • You have experience with ELT patterns, and have worked with appropriate tools such as Airbyte, Fivetran, etc.
  • You are comfortable working with data orchestration systems and data pipeline tools such as Airflow, Dagster, or equivalent.
