Levro is a new multicurrency business neobank. We help companies expand overseas by giving them the ability to hold, convert, and pay in/out of 30+ currencies using one account. Businesses can go global and hold $, €, £, ¥, etc., convert at better wholesale rates, pay in/out using local payment rails, and automate FX optimization.
At Levro, our mission is to build the financial backbone for global commerce. We are building financial infrastructure to allow any company to frictionlessly expand to any country. Our first product is a bank account for businesses that will let you hold and spend multiple currencies ($, €, £, ¥, etc.).
Opening a bank account abroad as a business can be really hard: it can take up to 6 months in the UK, and you often even need to fly to Canada to open a Canadian bank account! Once accounts are open, banks charge high fees to convert between currencies, and the setup can be complicated to administer. We solve that by having one business bank account that lets you hold and transact in any currency you want. Many businesses currently forgo accepting overseas customers due to administrative challenges - we want to fix that.
We're second time founders and experienced operators. Both of our first companies had successful outcomes, and we're backed by top Silicon Valley investors, including YCombinator. We're well capitalized with a long runway.
As a Founding Engineer, you’re sure to have a big impact! You’ll shape our product and technology direction, as well as support an engineering culture that empathizes with our customers, users, and other team members.
You’ll help define the rest of this list. We have plenty of ideas for what technologies make sense here, but we need your help to turn those ideas into product!
