Travel and international opportunities are encouraged and you will have the opportunity to spend part of the rotations abroad.
What you'll do

After structured training, you will quickly be expected to take ownership of interesting projects that make a real difference to our company and our customers. You will gain exposure and extensive skills related to the various areas of ION's business. Throughout the program you will also be encouraged to pursue interests and skills outside of your rotation to further yourself and the organization.

Upon completion of the LDP, you will have a well-formed view of the FinTech industry. Through the rotational opportunities and special projects supported by continuous feedback and our mentor program, you will develop critical skills and professional capabilities fundamental to your career.
