About Polymath Ventures

Polymath Ventures is a company builder designed for emerging markets. We build innovative, game-changing companies that serve the needs of the fast-growing middle class.

We have grown tremendously over the last 6 years of operation, with 8 ventures launched and over 300 amazing staff across our portfolio. Our portfolio ventures are platform businesses that take existing everyday offline behaviour and bring it onto digital platforms that offer user-centred UX, collect structured data and leverage powerful algorithms to increase the productivity of our service providers.

  • Experience working with and monitoring web applications in the cloud (preferably AWS)
  • Ability to work with Product and Designers to implement visual and interactive designs
  • Comfortable shipping code on a daily basis

What you bring

  • Outstanding analytical and quantitative strength
  • Eagerness to understand the business operations and its needs
  • Hunger to solve critical and difficult problems
  • Code with love and care for quality
  • Hold users first, not engineering challenges
  • Have a strong sense of ownership for the entire solution, not just a single issue

What we offer

  • Operations in Colombia, Mexico and Peru
  • Over 300 people employed across the Polymath group
