💼 Fintech Job of the Week

Confido is hiring a Founding Full-Stack Engineer in New York!

Confido is a next-generation financial automation and intelligence platform helping fast-growing CPG brands operate and scale more efficiently. Despite advances in technology, the tools to run and grow a business in retail haven’t changed. Today, the vast majority of brands rely on the same error-prone and expensive manual spreadsheet-based workflows.

💬 Quote of the Week

"In our relentless quest for convenience and connection within the digital sphere, we have unwittingly allowed the essence of our agency to be eroded by the "push" strategies of Web 2.0 platforms. The narrative that once empowered users to actively 'pull' content of their choosing has been eclipsed by an invasive model that "pushes" content upon us, often at the cost of our privacy, our autonomy, and the serenity of our digital experience."
