About Upstart Network, Inc.

Upstart is a profitable Series D start-up founded by ex-Googlers with an amazing leadership and advisory team: We are the first consumer lending platform to use machine learning to price credit and automate the borrowing process. We've originated over $5.5B in loans (huge milestone!) and have some exciting new revenue streams and projects in the works. We are currently recruiting for more stakeholder engineers to join our Engineering Team and aid our exponential growth.

Why join us?

  • Our engineers work on all aspects of the Upstart platform, from our data prediction model to our backend financial platform, to our web interfaces and 3rd party API integrations. You'll enjoy significant autonomy in architecting systems, writing algorithms, and crafting elegant user interfaces. Our team is broken into product-oriented squads, giving engineers direct access to the end-user and the ability to launch features without being blocked. We’ve also designed the squad system to enable constant learning: engineers have the chance to rotate squads every 6 months to learn new parts of the codebase and business. Do you want to learn a new language or a new skill? There's a squad here to learn from. You'll also get the chance to solve challenges with interesting engineering constraints, work in a distributed system, and collaborate with data scientists.

  • Great traction — Since launching in May 2014, we've now had over $5.5B in loans originated and are now profitable at a $100M+ revenue run rate. We grew 4x in 2017 and are experiencing similar growth in 2018.

  • Competition doesn't understand technology — We're the only technology focused company working on this problem. Most teams working on this problem are former investment bankers using the same old approach. We're a team of engineers tackling this as an engineering and data problem.

  • Great partnerships — We've got great partnerships with top companies in the personal finance space, such as Nerd Wallet and Credit Karma.

  • Experienced team — Our co-founder and CEO Dave Girouard previously started and led Google Enterprise, taking it from a zero dollar a year business up to $1 billion in annual revenue.
