Francisco Javier Arceo

Hello there! 👋

I'm Francisco, welcome to my corner of the internet! I'm an Engineering Manager for the Machine Learning and Data Infrastructure team at Affirm 🚀. I also write for the Chaos Engineering blog.


In a previous time, I built a financial wellness mobile app for the Latino community at Unidos.


Before Affirm, I worked at Fast where I was the head of the Data Platform and Machine Learning infrastructure team. Before that I was at Goldman Sachs where I worked in the Credit Risk team developing and executing the underwriting strategy for their Digital Retail Bank (Marcus, by Goldman Sachs). Prior to that I worked at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia where I helped launch TymeDigital, South Africa's first digital bank. And prior to that I was at AIG working in their Science team.


Feel free to checkout some of my past work on my GitHub where you'll find some work I've done on Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Web Development, Cloud Computing, Data Visualization, and other random things.


Occassionally, I invest in startups as an LP at the Fintech Fund, a syndicate of fintech operators, and independently as an angel. To date, I've invested in the following companies:


If you'd like to get in touch, feel free to reach out to me on Twitter or LinkedIn.
