An Insider's view of Pangea Money Transfer

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

The desire to make sure that our team has the tools we need to be successful and give our all every day is infused in the culture and that includes taking care of ourselves and finding the right balance between work and the rest of our lives.

Stacey

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We constantly refine our mobile app experience to help people send money to friends and family. Behind the scenes, we build robust APIs that coordinate money transfers across many financial networks worldwide using a diverse and evolving tech stack based on AWS. We have a motivated team that is eager to take on any challenge.

Nick

VP of Engineering

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.

Nishu

CEO

How does your team reward individual success?

We have a program called Pangea Props that gives everyone the ability to reward team members for their accomplishments. Props are published on a slack channel for everyone to see. It's fun to see what people are working on and help celebrate big wins. Employees can cash out their Props for real prizes like gift cards or charitable donations.
