Our team

  • Georgijs Krasovickis
    Georgijs Krasovickis Founder

A finance management tool that is accessible to everyone and anywhere was Georgij's idea and, soon enough, he made his dream into a goal, gathered a team of brilliant minds and here we are now. For Georgij's innovation is a lifestyle. Having experience and passion for both fintech, and restaurant businesses, he definitely has a great taste for success and he's always on a lookout for the next challenge, opportunity, and innovation that will spice up the fintech world.
  • Artjoms Grivkovs
    Artjoms Grivkovs Chief Executive Officer
    Artjoms is a man of vision and is no stranger to the late nights at the drawing board. Disguised as a bearded individual in a suit, our CEO Artjoms is actually a rather creative mind. Hiding behind his job description is not about Artjoms; he never hesitates to get his hands dirty and does his best to ensure everybody is having a good time while marching towards the main objective.
  • Valerijs Kogols
    Valerijs Kogols Chief Operating Officer
    Every ship needs its captain, every team needs its Valerijs. Our Chief Operating Officer is one of a kind—he is a virtuoso puppet master motivating colleagues out of their minds. Nothing can get in his way as he drills through obstacles like the bowtie-wearing beast he is. But don’t get confused by his “kick your ass” look—he’s the best office buddy every hard-working fintech geek deserves.
  • Dmitrijs Lvovs
    Dmitrijs Lvovs Head of Risk Management Department
    There is no doubt that data can bring you success or ruin you in seconds. Managing this mess definitely requires superpowers. Thankfully, we have our own data magician. Dmitrijs has a healthy obsession with assessing worst-case scenarios. As our Head of Risk Management Department, he is the only person in the room thinking in terms of disaster, but no one is actually ever witnessing projects going south. Why so? Because Dmitrijs does his job like a champ.
  • Jeļena Antipova
    Jeļena Antipova Chief Technology Officer
    You have to be really careful about using the word “impossible” around our Chief Technology Officer Jelena. Why? Because she eats impossible for breakfast! Top-tier analytical problem solver and a daredevil on the track. If she’s not getting her hands dirty in yet another coding marathon, she’s on her quad making big boys bite her dust. Jelena spends most of her time figuring out solutions to problems no one else has yet stumbled upon.
  • Daiga Muižniece
    Daiga Muižniece Chief Legal Officer
    Daiga knows the essence of good living, and being our Chief Legal Officer, this trait comes in hand on a daily basis. Even though her duties consist of being the most rational person in the room, Daiga is the least likely person to be a killjoy. She’s an emotional thermostat calming the often-edgy nerves of colleagues.
  • Simona Lucatniece
    Simona Lucatniece PR and Marketing Communications Manager
    In a tech-savvy company the nerdy ying has to be balanced out by an equally slick yang. That’s why we have Simona, our PR and Marketing Communications Manager, who not only evens out the coolness factor but takes care of our image as well. A composed tornado in the office and a wanderluster on the outskirts, she handles obstacles and adversary with a steady hand, managing to squeeze in a proper laugh here and there.
  • Deniss Šerstjukovs
    Deniss Šerstjukovs Member of the Board
    As a Member of the Board, nothing makes Deniss more excited than exploring new horizons of the fintech industry. And if there is some risk involved, Deniss is already planning his next move. As a true leader, instead of giving consoling answers, he takes the action.
  • Vitalijs Maculevics
    Vitalijs Maculevics Head of Marketing
    Cracking down marketing ideas with Vitalijs is like tuning in Shark Tank Season 3. As Head of Marketing, he fuses the mixture of creativity and logic—a fierce combination only a few possess. Equipped with a rare talent of being able to objectively think while listening, Vitalijs has established his position as a multifunctional marketing guru.
  • Viktorija Ratačova
    Viktorija Ratačova Chief Financial Officer
    Being a professional number whisperer, Viktorija has a black belt in Excel. As our Chief Finance Officer, she makes sure we don't spend too much on fidget spinners and M&Ms. Whether it’s nerdy conversations with the tech team, or girl gossip over the lunch, Viktorija is a great buddy to spend your time with. If there is such thing as knowledge limitation to a human brain, then we are wondering how she ended up on this planet.
  • Eduards Lapkovskis
    Eduards Lapkovskis Member of the Board
    If you would’ve told 18-year-old Eduards that once he would be making decisions as a Member of the Board he wouldn’t be surprised for a second. But don’t get sidetracked; his success is not accidental: Eduards’ secret weapon is his detail-oriented eye, letting no nuance slip by unseen. Apart from daily strategic manoeuvres and shot-calling, Eduards often saves the day with one or two kick-ass jokes and makes his team believe everything is possible.
  • Egidijus Civilis
    Egidijus Civilis Compliance Officer
