Nu Game Changers 3: Pato Rocca

Pato Rocca is an international engineering leader and has been with Nubank for just over 2 years. Since he arrived, he has accompanied the internationalization of teams to support the launch of Nu products in Mexico and Colombia. In Nu Game Changers 3 video, he says:

“In 20 years in the job market, it’s the first time I have worked in a company with a culture like Nu’s. The environment is light, and it’s a pleasure to help customers have an easier life. I feel fulfilled and part of the growth of Nubank, which has become an impactful global institution.”

Nu Game Changers 3: Francisco Hernández

Francisco Hernández, Lead Software Engineer and one of the first engineers to work at Nu Mexico. Part of Nu Game Changers 3, he expresses himself like this:

“Once, still in my old job, I came to Brazil for work and, when I went out to dinner one night, I noticed that most people paid with this card, which they called roxinho. I asked: ‘It is certainly the largest card operator from Brazil, right?’ And they told me: ‘It’s the coolest in Brazil.’ And that made me want to be part of this company. When Nu arrived in Mexico, I had no hesitation, and I applied.”

Nu Game Changers 3: Layne Granados

Layne Granados has been at Nu Colombia for almost 2 years and was one of the first engineers to join our team in the country.

“Our mission is to enable people to actually be able to make payments. That’s why I see the importance of my work at Nu. Being part of the team behind operations is fantastic. Starting a project from scratch is one of the most amazing and important things we can do.”

Nu Game Changers 3: Isabela Gonçalves

Isabela Gonçalves, at Nubank for almost 6 years, is responsible for supporting the engineering teams and has the opportunity to accompany the company’s growth in Brazil and the expansion to other countries. Now in Game Changers 3 episode, she remembers:

“In the beginning, engineers and the customer service team, for example, sat next to each other. It’s amazing how we grew without putting aside the quality and voice of the customer. I feel very honored, supported, and recognized for my journey here.”
