iOS Engineer

June 14, 2018


(New York City)


Matador is a VC-backed startup dedicated to improving the relationship that young generations have with the financial markets. Buying stocks, on your own, can be scary. We’re building a social investment product aimed at first-time, young investors who can feel comfortable making informed investment decisions together with their friends.


We’re a small team solving a big problem that sits at the intersection of fintech and lifestyle. The younger generations invest 8 times less than their parents, and knowing how to use the stock market to grow and preserve wealth is important. We don’t judge our users: on the contrary, our design-strategy comes from a place of empathy. We look at qualitative and quantitative data to understand the behaviors that lead our users to certain actions (or lack thereof.)
