Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team is broken into four squads:

  • our biggest squad focuses on Customer Success— they make sure all customers, both internal and external, are successful. This includes making changes to the app to clarify experiences, fixing bugs, building internal dashboards, etc.

  • our second biggest squad is called Product Innovation— this team works on new products and features driven by our company mission: to improve our customers' financial lives

  • our third squad works on revenue: underwriting and collecting advances and subscription fees. This is a very backend-heavy team that relies on a lot of data science and machine learning tools

  • the fourth squad is working on our biggest new product of 2019.. we'll share the news with you when we're on the phone!

Technical Challenges

Our goal is to offer $75 zero-interest paycheck advances to as many customers as we can. Optimizing our underwriting rules to approve more customers every week while maintaining our collection rate is a constant challenge. We run multiple experiments every week alongside regular rebuilds of our machine learning model, which has gained us the highest combined approval/collection rate in the industry.

Projects you might work on
  • You'll work on a React Native mobile app that is released weekly, with top-notch product, design, and QA teams.

  • You'll help build and release machine learning models to increase our approval rate and help more customers avoid overdraft fees

  • You'll build new products and features that will improve our customers' financial lives
