MiCRO is hiring!

Fecha de publicación: 1 de diciembre de 2022


Email us:

Four positions: 1) Head of Growth Central America, 2) Data scientist, 3) Senior IT specialist, 4) Communications specialist.

We won’t be modest about it – you are really going to enjoy working for MiCRO. The rest of the team already does and wants to find like-minded colleagues to join us as we continue to expand.

We are a small and dynamic social business whose work makes a difference to the vulnerable lowincome population of the world. The reason we love our work so much is that we tackle issues that create solutions for development challenges, financial inclusion, climate change, and agricultural productivity, all at the same time. We have the support of highly reputable partners and investors but at the end of the day, it is the talent of the individuals within the immediate team that is MiCRO’s secret ingredient for success.

We are a rather small team, but with a diverse range of skills. Nobody can brainstorm and implement solutions better than we can. We are excited for you to join our team and bring your fresh ideas to the table, but you can expect a range of challenging questions from our actuary, or our business managers, and most definitely from our COO and CEO – as we all do with our own ideas and plans. We all challenge ourselves to think outside the box and take initiative, and that is why we believe we can do something world-leading in our work.


If you think that MiCRO is a place for you, we would love to hear from you. Send us your CV and tell us why you think you would be a great addition to our team:

What to expect?

We work very hard, but we enjoy what we do. Knowing that we are making a difference to the lives of people that really need it gets each of us out of bed in the morning. MiCRO launched its first ever product in Haiti in 2011. Although we hope to expand globally in the future, we are currently focused on the work at hand in Latin America. Our current countries of operations are Guatemala, El Salvador, Colombia, Mexico and others will follow suit.

Our team works mostly virtually, and in continual conversation over Zoom, phone, WhatsApp and email. We try to meet in person occasionally. We do not expect you to relocate, but for ease of time zones and travel, we have a very strong preference to hire individuals based in Latin America.

We know you are a talented individual and we will pay you accordingly.


What are we looking for?

If you want to succeed in MiCRO, you need to be intellectually curious and ready to take initiative. We have many problems that we are trying to solve and tasks that we are trying to implement. You should be ready to take the lead on some of these.

Nobody in the world has “cracked the nut” on the problems that we are trying to solve. That is why we realise that we cannot write a job description for exactly the individuals that we need. We do know, however, that you are a leader that continuously questions and improves the status quo to drive the success of the company. Furthermore, you see yourself as one or several of the following profiles:


● The banker to the poor. You know all about microfinance, working with microfinance institutions, and have worked with financial products targeted at low-income populations.

●The inclusive insurance guru. You know plenty about the different types of insurance products, reinsurance contracts, and how insurance companies work in order to ensure that access to insurance is a reality.

● The development worker who sees the commercially viable solutions as key. You understand the target market we are trying to reach because you have worked extensively in development, and have lived many years in developing countries. You consider that real impact requires the private sector to be involved by designing innovative solutions that are financially sustainable.

● The all-round smart individual. You are a curious thinker who loves solving problems with business solutions. Maybe you have an MBA, or maybe you just have a brilliant business mind that understands the challenge of our need to create financially sustainable solutions to development problems.

● The data know-it-all. You have a special relationship with numbers and love to use that gift in a pragmatic manner to solve day-to-day problems with the information provided by the data.

● The world's improver through technology. You see your great knowledge in IT as the tool to continuously improve current processes, as you understand the importance of efficiency for the success of the company. Does any of the above ring a bell?
