Nik Koblov is the Head of Risk and Financial Engineering at Ramp. Prior to joining Ramp, Nik spent three years at Affirm working as the Head of Bank and New Markets Engineering, and 18 years at Goldman Sachs.
In this episode I talk to Nik about the engineering culture at Goldman and how it set him up well for the startup world, why Affirm’s innovative model was such a breath of fresh air, and what got him so excited about Ramp. He shares about the uniqueness and ambition of Ramp’s holistic approach, how the company works to empower its employees, and some benefits over the past year of being remote.
I hope you enjoy the show.
