Do you like to move fast and solve big problems?

Do you care about democratizing data?

How about balancing the global distribution of wealth? 

At Pngme, we believe everyone deserves equal access to finance. We’re opening the capital market to the 3.3 billion people worldwide who to date have been locked out from traditional finance. Who are our customers? Banks, Fintechs, and Credit Bureaus use our platform to design new financial products for this enormous new customer segment. We do this by finding innovative ways to gather, structure, present, and analyze user information -- for instance, creating synthetic credit scores based on a user’s bill-pay and peer-to-peer finance transactions. 

We are a remote-first company, with offices in San Francisco, Lagos, and Nairobi. We invest heavily in our employees and pride ourselves on our inclusive culture and ongoing professional development that focuses on finding your 'perfect fit'. We are backed by Radical Ventures, Unshackled Ventures, Lateral Capital, Echo VC, as well as the inventor of Amazon Alexa and other renowned investors. We have team members and advisors from PayPal Ventures, Branch International, Juvo, and Layer6.
