Join our fast-growing FinTech startup as a Founders Associate!

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and driven individual to join our dynamic and growing team. At Navro, we value diversity and are committed to creating an environment where everyone feels supported and empowered to contribute their unique perspectives.

Are you ready for an exhilarating opportunity to work closely with industry veterans Eddie and Aran, with over 30 years of combined payments experience? At Navro, we’re not just offering a job — we’re offering an adventure alongside two of the most genuine, down-to-earth leaders you’ll ever meet.
