Program Manager (Latin America)



Posted on Thursday, March 23, 2023

*The Company *

We’re here to introduce the world to Bitcoin. Fold makes it easy to earn bitcoin, instead of airline miles and hotel points, on everyday purchases via our mobile app and the Fold Visa Debit Card. We’re growing like crazy with a loyal (and loud!) community which has generated a lot of buzz (Fortune, Bloomberg).

This year, we’re launching our enterprise platform, the Fold Money and Rewards Platform, which will empower organizations to bring bitcoin rewards and debit cards to their customers globally. We have some amazing partners lined up from fintechs to fortune 500 consumer brands and we’re looking for a Program Manager to bring this program to life.

Fold’s Program Manager will work alongside our leadership team to manage the development of the global Fold Money and Rewards Platform in Latin America. This position requires a thoughtful and enthusiastic professional who is passionate about creating best-in-class products and bringing Fold’s vision to life.
