Full Stack Developer Intern
Access to credit is extremely scarce for the 40m gig economy workers in Brazil and in many other emerging economies. Volatile earnings and a work history that is difficult to access mean that these individuals cannot even apply for loans within most financial institutions and online lenders. When faced with emergencies or financial difficulties, gig workers struggle to find reliable alternatives.
Zippi solves that by building financial products tailored to gig workers. Our first product, a credit card for gig workers, is the first in Brazil to match workers' cash flows, giving customers much better control over their spending.
From June to August, we will be located at San Francisco to be accelerated by YC. It will be an intense and fun 3-month period where we intend to grow aggressively. In order to get there, we are transitioning from a quick-and-dirty MVP to a scalable lending operation. Challenges include choosing building the system infrastructure, designing the database architecture and optimizing the credit engine.
The role of the Full Stack Developer intern will be to help us in the development of the Zippi application, from ideation all the way to coding. The developer will be working closely with our CTO and our head of product on this mission.
