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 Product Manager with a strong technical background, you will build top business-critical platform products to help support growth across platform verticals. You will apply skills such as stakeholder management, identifying users' needs and ruthlessly prioritizing them, and leverage your deeper understanding of what is and isn’t possible to get things done.

What you’ll work on:

  • Build scalable, available, and robust services in close collaboration with your customers
  • Apply customer-centric, business-focused mindset to the tasks at hand, leveraging the deeper understanding of what is and isn’t possible
  • Working with third parties, whether it’s evaluating APIs and capabilities, mapping out integration plans or evaluating different technology options
  • Define what success looks like and use metrics to evaluate progress towards your goals
  • Create alignment on your vision, roadmap, and KPIs throughout the organization
  • Create product requirements, prioritize and build roadmaps to execute your vision
  • Deep dive into the more technical aspects of the product, problem solving alongside fellow engineers
  • Map competitors and conduct capability analysis regularly
  • Build close relationships with your customers to understand their needs
  • Evaluate build vs buy alternatives and monitor external providers capabilities

Who you are:

  • At least 5+ years of relevant experience building highly scalable platform products
  • You are analytical and instinctively use SQL to measure something of interest
  • You are comfortable to speak in swimlanes, service-to-service architecture, RESTful APIs, ML models and data structures - and understand how these topics directly impact our customers’ lives
  • You have experience and the ability to proactively prioritize, manage, take responsibility in multiple initiatives within time constraints and with strong attention to detail
  • You have experience in working with multi-disciplinary teams in iterative product development cycles
  • You have a deep understanding product thinking and can showcase it
  • You have experience working in products with a microservices architecture
  • You have experience working as a software or data engineer
  • You have experience building products in regulated spaces (such as finance, healthcare, etc.)
