Merama is seeking to become the best and largest online group of brands Latin America. Our business model is to partner with the leading merchants across Latin America (currently they are focused on Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Chile) and with our team, capital, and technology to fuel additional hypergrowth. Unlike the dozens of Amazon aggregators that have popped up over the past few years, Merama is solely focused on Latin America, works with very few partners, and does not purchase companies outright. Instead, they are focused on identifying the top few companies in certain major categories and selectively partnering with the best by purchasing a stake in their business. Our company was founded 6 months ago by a group of entrepreneurs and former consultants, marketers, logistics professionals and e-commerce experts. We recently announced our Series A fundraise of 160M USD and we seek to change the E-commerce landscape in LATAM.
The People team plays a crucial organisational role in Merama by channeling important resources to key functions in the company. People are key to Merama’s growth, and as our business expands, so does the need to develop and support our employees. We need the brightest recruiting minds to match our rapidly expanding business needs while bringing the company’s best and most diverse talent. You will also work closely with the global team as well as regional. The ideal candidate is driven, hungry to learn, excited to take on new challenges, and is a champion for diversity.
