Who We Are

At R2, we believe that small and medium businesses are the productive engine of society. Small and medium businesses (SMBs) make up over 90% of companies in Latin America, yet they face a trillion-dollar credit gap. Our mission is to unlock SMBs’ potential by providing financial solutions that are tailored to their needs. We are reimagining the financial infrastructure of Latin America - where SMBs financial needs are satisfied without ever having to go to a bank.

R2 enables platforms in Latin America to embed financial services that SMBs can then leverage at the point of need and within the operating tools they use. We are a tight knit team coming from organizations such as Google, Amazon, Nubank, Uber, Mercado Libre, J.P. Morgan, Capital One and Ualá. We are backed by world-class technology investors such as Gradient Ventures (Google’s AI-focused fund), General Catalyst, and Y Combinator.

To learn more about R2, here are a few articles that have been published about recently: Fintech R2 Inks $100 Million Credit Line to Boost Mexico Lending, Google leads fresh investment in embedded lending fintech R2 , and Rappi and R2 to Provide Loans to Restaurants in Mexico and Colombia.

We are a data-first company — data is the core of our product and the lifeblood for all of our decision-making. As a Senior Data Scientist you will sit at the helm of R2 by analyzing in a descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive way large data from some of the leading technology platforms in the world, and deploying clever and scalable data-driven solutions that enable new financial opportunities to millions of small businesses across Latin America. Your solutions will drive critical business decisions, such as who to fund and how much to offer, in an automated and scalable way.
