Q: When you were looking out for a new job, how did you shortlist the Fintech sector?

A: I was seeking sectors that offered exponential growth for me as a backend developer.

This led me to explore opportunities in the fintech sector, specifically in fintech startups.

A: Nimbbl’s product had me captivated, especially when considering its role in the overall eCommerce market. The impact it had on payments, increasing conversions, and simplifying the lives of merchants and developers intrigued me. I discovered Nimbbl on Wellfound and explored their website, where I learned more about the products and features. Engaging in conversations with the team solidified my belief that my experience at Nimbbl would be valuable.

This experience not only challenged me but also provided invaluable learning opportunities.
