Information Security Officer

Job description

Our mission

We believe the financial system has been slowing the world down. Its barriers to entry are unfairly limiting coverage and limiting the kinds of products we could be building. The stakes are high. Well-being is driven by innovation, and innovation is facilitated by financial participation. With 2bn unbanked worldwide there is still a long way to go. The role of traditional banks is changing. They are becoming liquidity utilities, leaving an opportunity for tech businesses like Intergiro to service fast changing customer needs.
