Product Manager, Payments

Menlo Park, California, US

WhatsApp is a fast, simple and reliable way to talk to anyone in the world. More than 1 billion people in over 180 countries use WhatsApp to stay in touch with friends and family, anytime and anywhere. WhatsApp is not only free but also available on multiple mobile devices and in low connectivity areas — making it accessible and reliable wherever you are. It's a simple and secure way to share your favorite moments, send important information or catch up with a friend. WhatsApp helps people connect and share no matter where they are in the world.
We are excited to be bringing payments to WhatsApp. Imagine splitting a bill with friends or paying your neighborhood grocer just as easily as sending a message over WhatsApp. We have currently released payments in beta in India. We aim to build payments to be simple, reliable and secure like everything else in WhatsApp and expand to additional countries in the next few years.
