Argentina‘s answer to Brazilian Nubank, fintech Ualá announced it will double the size of its team in Argentina, hiring 750 people during 2021 to reach a staff of 1,500 by the end of the year. The open positions are mainly for technology, systems, digital product, marketing, and user experience.
Hiring is part of Ualá’s investment plan of ARS 5.7 billion to continue developing an ecosystem of payments aimed at financial inclusion in Latin America and solutions that contribute to the economic development of people.
“The fintech is in dialogue with the government and they will invest in Argentina, Ualá can hire resources from anywhere in the world, that’s how tech companies work, so what they are saying is that they will invest in 2021 in Argentina,” commented Ignacio Carballo, professor, and director of Fintech Ecosystem at the Universidad Católica de Buenos Aires.
“What would we assume with this? Ualá recently acquired Argentina’s first neobank, Wilobank, and will now be able to pay pensions, which was only possible with a banking license. So we can expect this approach with the government will also provide that,” commented Carballo.
