Executive Assistant to CEO



Mexico City, Mexico
Posted on Tuesday, May 23, 2023


Hi! This is Yalo! We are on a mission to bring conversational commerce to the world...

Remember how it used to be to interact with businesses that knew and understood you, that could recommend exactly what you needed, and that with a simple message could get you what you wanted??? Yep... neither do we. That is why at Yalo we are marrying the scale of digital commerce with the personalization and simplicity of conversations to help companies delight their users.

We know that traditional SAAS companies focus on first-world problems... we don't! Having started in Latin America, our roots are in Emerging Markets and therefore we care about bringing amazing experiences to a population that traditionally has been underserved, such as the small shop owner in Brazil that is ordering online for the first time.

If you're looking for a place to make shit happen, learn fast, and impact emerging markets in a way that hasn't been done before, look no further. 💫

Come join us in our mission of improving billions of lives through the power of conversational commerce!
