Role Description

About Upstart

Upstart is a leading AI lending platform partnering with banks to expand access to affordable credit. As we transitioned to being a public company, we’re now poised to leverage our domain expertise and revolutionize every aspect of lending and credit risk evaluation. We’ve recently expanded our offerings to include automobile refinancing and we plan to take on more verticals as the business grows.

By leveraging Upstart's AI platform, Upstart-powered banks can have higher approval rates and lower loss rates, while simultaneously delivering the exceptional digital-first lending experience their customers demand. Upstart's patent-pending platform is the first to receive a no-action letter from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau related to fair lending. Upstart is based in San Mateo, California and Columbus, Ohio.

Most Upstarters join us because they connect with our mission of enabling access to effortless credit based on true risk. If you are energized by the impact you can make at Upstart, we’d love to hear from you!

About Prodigy

Prodigy is building the future for car buying. We’re a fun-loving, hard working group of trail blazers who believe anything is possible with the right team. We recently merged with Upstart (UPST), a leading AI lending platform, and are now better positioned than ever to deliver on our mission to create the world’s best car buying experience with cutting-edge auto-retail software.

More than $1 trillion of cars are sold each year in the U.S., yet it consistently ranks as one of the worst consumer experiences in America. This is the perfect chance to get in early, help fix that, and make a big impact in one of the world’s largest industries. If that sounds exciting to you, we’d love to chat!

About You

You write a lot of ES6 Javascript, on the client and the server. You might have mobile experience. You’re rock-solid in two domains (maybe more), edge-cases included. A quality code review is something you know how to do, and thinking in systems-level and fullstack terms comes naturally at this point for you.

Reactive frameworks, such as React and Vue are comfortable for you. Discussing technical trade-offs, and articulating them to everyone at the table, are things you excel at. Working on a small, fast-paced team excites you, and you feel that you can bring good habits while still writing code quickly to a fast-growing, sharp team. This wouldn’t be your first Node shop.

How you'll make an impact:

-Actively participate and perform in code reviews and design sessions -Mentor other engineers, support technical culture, and ensure best practices -See the importance of strong security while scaling

What we're looking for:

-6+ years of software experience at a startup or technology focused company -Experience working in a production Node.js shop -Strong expertise in using Javascript backend and frontend (Node & CSS) -Experience defining and implementing system architecture with significant impact -Expertise in our frameworks React, or Reactive Data Frameworks (Vue, Angular, etc.) is a strong plus, but we expect the world to change quickly and we want people who can be adaptive and who can come in and teach us too -Experience with UI principles and a comfort talking the talk and walking the walk of design -Strong experience in React, SQL -Creativity, courage, empathy and stamina are integral to you as a person and employee -A desire to learn and improve on a daily basis

What you’ll love:

-Competitive compensation (base + bonus & equity) -Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision coverage -Personal development and technology & ergonomic budgets -Life insurance and disability benefits -Clubs and activities (Game Nights, Fitstarters, Superwomen, Book Club, Investing Club, Money Discussions, Photography Club and Basketball teams) -Generous vacation policy -401(k)
