Pangea offers a smarter way for people to move money around the world to friends and family. Founded in 2012, Pangea started with a mission to revolutionize the remittance industry by providing customers a powerful, easy-to-use mobile application to send money internationally. Since then, we have grown to offer additional products and services to help underbanked immigrants gain financial independence.

Pangea operates as an independent subsidiary under Enova Financial (NYSE: ENVA). Also headquartered in Chicago, Enova is a leading financial technology company offering accessible credit to millions of customers. Together, Pangea and Enova are on a mission to help hardworking people get access to fair financial services.

We know that diversity is the key to innovation and creativity. If you have a growth mindset and you thrive under pressure, you’re a great fit for our team!

Pangea is seeking a software engineering leader to manage and build our fast-growing engineering team. You will report to the VP of Engineering and be responsible for the development of Pangea’s consumer and enterprise products.

  • Build a high-performing, world-class engineering team. You will work closely with Pangea’s HR team to recruit, hire, and onboard top talent. 
  • Work closely with technical leadership on strategic planning to evolve our architecture, security, and scale without sacrificing product delivery.

An Insider's view of Pangea Money Transfer

What makes someone successful on your team?

What I love about Pangea is that it continues to be a place that rewards hard work and initiative. For those who can thrive in an ambiguous environment and take ownership to solve problems, Pangea offers a fantastic opportunity to see the impact of your efforts.

Josh

GM

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

You have to encourage a culture of trying new things. For people to be creative, they have to be allowed to think outside the box, and to do that they have to be OK with failure. We have to be introspective and get better each time, but failure is part of the process. That's the only way to get better.
