Tell us a little about the company.
Rappi is an on-demand delivery company
with operations in Colombia, Mexico, Brazil
and Argentina. Our customers are busy
people who value their time and don't want to

has a friendly attitude, wears cool clothes, and
has a young voice. Our employees can easily
relate to him, and they see him as one of
