Role Description

Company Mission: Our mission is to reduce the cost of capital across the world.

About the Company: We are launching a new credit card powered by an advanced asset securing platform that enables us to offer much lower APRs to consumers. Our team is a combination of deep technology (Microsoft, Facebook, Square), and finance (Goldman Sachs, Affirm, SoFi) executives. Our Seed round was led by Max Levchin, and our Series A by Founders Fund - with participation in both rounds by Sequoia, NYCA, and others.

Our work involves building the world’s first completely autonomous asset-securing process, world-class risk models for underwriting, and an incredibly smooth & efficient product experience for consumers to apply, activate, and manage their credit cards.

We’re looking for extremely talented data scientists who want to work with intelligent, motivated, intense, and interesting people.

Cultural Values: Depth and rigor of thought - we try to be rigorous in our thinking & dive into the details Minimalist - we want to be spartan in our design, in our code, and even in our processes Speed of execution - we move fast & value decisiveness. We think speed drives quality Done is better than perfect - we ship

We deal with people’s personal and financial data with the aim of helping them improve their financial situation. We are looking for people who are comfortable rolling up their sleeves and digging deep into software in order to ensure reliability, accuracy, and security.

If you have built and deployed an end-to-end ML based software and data pipeline system (from problem specification and solution construction, to data ingestion, to post deployment insight analysis), then we want to work with you.

Technologies: SQL Python (Scientific computing) AWS Deep understanding of ML packages
