Bio

Building something new in fintech, specifically building the best cross-border payments product withparallax.com
💼
Previously product lead @ LinkedIn Jobs (if you see those purple “Hiring” rings on people’s profiles, built that and more!), Kumu (led the team to product-market fit in the earliest days) & Ripcord through the KP Product Fellowship. I started the Filip[in]os @ LinkedIn group & was a Women in Product executive member.
🎓
My family and I have basically paid $0 in tuition for my high school and college as I’m a proud Freeman Asian scholar and Philippine Science High School scholar. I graduated B.A. Economics, Psychology, Data Analysis from Wesleyan UniversityPhi Beta Kappa & a summa cum laude.
🇵🇭
I'm most passionate about broadening access through tech in emerging markets like my home, the Philippines & in the rest of S.E. Asia. On the side, I work(ed) on a virtual startup incubator for emerging markets, the first playbook for launching NFTs (as an NFT) & launched a fun social card game.
Nowadays, I'm overloading on coffee & obsessing over payments. Any interesting ideas in crypto, fintech and cross-border payments? Send me a note at hello@mikareyes.com.
