About Zippi

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.

About the role
Skills: Machine learning

About Zippi: Zippi was founded in 2019 by an enthusiastic group of entrepreneurs with the simple but ambitious goal of helping those who work for themselves to thrive. Starting a business can be challenging at any level and anyone running a small company in Brazil today faces the additional challenge of not having access to the right financial tools. Zippi offers a payment method design for micro-entrepreneurs. Our client is no longer reliant on having cash on hand and no longer faces the risk of losing control over their credit card spending. Our credit line, which is used through PIX, quickly becomes the go-to option for our clients to get their business moving. Over the course of three investment rounds, Zippi received more than $20 million in funding from world class investors including Y Combinator, Canary, Hummingbird Ventures, Soma Capital, and Tiger, as well as founders and operators of companies like Square, Gympass, GuiaBolso, Cobli, Volanty, and Biz Capital.
