We integrate global finance into local economies
Ponto is the liquidity and compliance backend for the next generation of assets, banks, wallets, and mobile financial experiences anywhere in the world.
Ponto, meaning bridge in Esperanto, connects fiat currencies and digital money. We help entrepreneurs and enterprises focus on creating great financial products instead of the regulatory and technical challenges involved with moving value around the world. This way, new companies and technologies can deliver on the promise of improving and democratizing access to financial infrastructure for everyone.
Our initial focus is on deploying our pluggable payments network across Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Africa.
We are fortunate to be backed by the best firms and individuals with deep expertise across our focus areas. Thank you for being a part of this story.
Ponto is built by successful hands-on entrepreneurs and fintech veterans. The team previously worked at institutions such as Wilson Sonsini, J.P. Morgan, the U.S. Department of Justice, Latham and Watkins, Goldman Sachs, Bridgewater, Five Rings, Rothschild, Lehman Brothers, Visa, Citi, Facebook, Celo, Apple, Google, Square, and Stripe.
A world-class advisory board brings experience spanning finance, technology, decentralized currencies, storytelling, and emerging markets.
We're assembling the founding members, and are looking for individuals with diverse perspectives and useful experience that can share in and execute on Ponto's mission.
You don't need to have experience with fintech or blockchain, though that is valuable, but you will be passionate about financial inclusion and building a service with global reach. You will be ready to thrive in an unstructured environment, be used to taking initiative, and have amazing attention to detail.
You'll help set our destiny, you'll create just enough process to get stuff done, you'll have fun, and will always assume good intent.
Founded in San Francisco, Ponto will grow to diverse locations around the world. We believe our satellite offices in New York, London, and Berlin exist to allow us to share our energy and support our social and emotional journey together. At the same time, talented people don't all exist in one place. We are committed to remote-first practices and are looking for individuals keen to refine and develop this culture. We encourage applications from wherever you are in the world.
