    • Merchant perceived value (where we are hiring) : this squad has the ownership of all features that benefit directly the Merchants. Squad members will focus on providing our merchant’s operations and CS teams with the tools and resources they need to be successful.

    Organization & How the team works

    Our Tech & Product team relies on a robust framework, which allows developers to work on the projects that are most valuable to our customers and also considers the technical evolutions necessary for the good health and maintainability of the product.
