Talent acquisition: why we value it so much

By bringing Plataformatec’s professionals together with our skilled tech teams we become stronger as the leading independent digital bank in the world. As of today, Nubank has nearly 20 MM customers, roughly growing by 50 thousand customers per day. It goes without saying that these numbers reflect the way we build our services, our architecture and how fast our internal processes run. But there is always room for improvement and the quest here is how to do this at an even more complex scale.

Some of Plataformatec’s agilists have already worked with Nubank over the past few months in different squads and projects. This proven track record has provided some of our teams with restructured rituals and new working agreements. We also saw improvements in our work with better-planned teams using throughput metrics and more reliable estimates. This increased the teams’ engagement and ownership, proving to be very promising first steps towards better multi-functional collaboration.
