MUMBAI: Fintech startup and credit card challenger slice on Friday announced the appointment of Siva Kumar Tangudu as the company’s new chief technology officer.

An IIT-Mumbai alumni, Tangudu brings with him leadership expertise of over 15 years across senior & pivotal roles at Myntra, HackerRank, Microsoft, & Oracle to name a few.

There are some very exciting things in the pipeline at slice - including the launch of a game-changing rewards system as well as UPI on our platform. Siva’s expertise will be critical in helping us move closer to our mission of building the raddest payment experience for millennials and GenZ.”

On his new role, Tangudu said “This is the best time to be at slice. Rajan and his team are building a phenomenal product that essentially challenges many traditional practices in the finance sector, and it’s thrilling to be a part of it. I look forward to building a stellar team here and bringing forth a tech-first approach to solving some interesting and hard problems in this space.”
