About Novi

For many people around the world, basic financial services are still out of reach: about 1.7 billion adults globally remain unbanked. The cost of that exclusion is significant - $25 billion is lost by migrants every year through remittance fees. This is the challenge we're hoping to address with Novi from Meta, whose goal is to provide people everywhere access to safe and affordable financial services. Our first product is a digital wallet - Novi - and it will be available in Messenger, WhatsApp, and as a standalone app. As we expand our payments and financial services efforts, we want to ensure we are making things simpler and more seamless for people and businesses. Over time, we will broaden the Novi brand to be more than a digital wallet. The Novi brand will encompass our existing and future payments and financial products for both people and businesses. At Novi from Meta, you will be working with a talented and dedicated group of people who are passionate about changing the world. Our leadership is experienced and some of the best minds working today in their respective fields. Our team is looking for a strong Enterprise Risk Manager who will help design and implement our global end-to-end Enterprise Risk Management program. You will support the strategy and implementation of the central program that will be the foundation for managing risks across the organization.
