Global fintech Curve appoints former Amazon VP Eric Molitor as Chief Technology Officer

Global fintech Curve has appointed former Improbable and Amazon VP Eric Molitor as Chief Technology Officer to lead tech advances worldwide.

Eric has joined Curve, a fast-growing financial superapp, to accelerate tech advances at Curve. He brings a wealth of technology and software engineering experience having joined from his role as VP of Engineering at Improbable, a UK technology start-up that creates and enables virtual worlds.

Prior to Improbable, Eric spent over a decade at Amazon, leading its engineering departments and product and brand integrations.

Curve is a financial superapp which combines all of your debit and credit cards into one, easy-to-use smart card. Meaning you can spend from any of your accounts via one card, with one pin, and seamlessly manage or move your money within the Curve app.

The London-based fintech recently secured $95m in a Series C funding, taking total funding to over $175m. Curve is live in 31 European countries, including the UK, Ireland, Germany, Poland, France, Italy, Portugal, Norway and Sweden. Its highly anticipated US launch is scheduled for the end of 2021.

Eric Molitor comments: “I am thrilled to join Curve at such an exciting time, not only in the business’ development but within the fintech and banking industry as a whole.

“Translating Curve’s mission to simplify and unify the way people spend, send, see and save money felt very natural to me. Curve is a stand-out firm in the industry, one with a strong purpose and vision, and I look forward to leading their tech advances into a new direction.”

Shachar Bialick, Founder and CEO of Curve, comments: “The appointment of Eric is a major milestone for our business. He brings a wealth of technology experience and we’re at a pivotal moment on our growth journey. While there is a lot about Eric’s background that impressed us, I was won over by his understanding of the culture engineers need to thrive and knack for building organisations that free them to work their best.

“While at Amazon, he led a small team of engineers to deliver Prime internationally. Prime has had a monumental impact on Amazon’s business and he was only able to deliver it by taking small, measured steps without ever losing sight of the mission.

“I’m immensely proud Eric is joining us and his support will be instrumental in the next critical phase of our growth journey.”
