Role Description

Here at Upstart, we’re on a mission to reinvent lending. Our proprietary algorithm predicts income potential and default rates more accurately than traditional data alone. By considering more than just credit scores, our lending platform is helping thousands of people on their way to a better financial future.

We’re looking for curious and humble team members driven by a desire to move quickly and build robust systems that improve people’s lives. You'll enjoy significant autonomy in architecting systems, writing algorithms, and crafting elegant user interfaces. You'll also get the chance to solve challenges with interesting engineering constraints, work in a distributed system, and work side by side with data scientists.

Your role:

  • Work within all areas of the platform from our web interfaces and 3rd party API integrations to backend business logic
  • Move quickly to drive both existing and greenfield projects forward, while always keeping our end users in mind
  • Make architectural contributions and decisions to improve the reliability of our software and maintainability of our code base
  • Help us build our engineering team and make Upstart a genuinely awesome place to work

If you:

  • Have worked with full stack web applications for at least 7 years professionally
  • Are intimately familiar with multiple web and JavaScript/JS frameworks (we use Ruby on Rails and React, but are open to all backgrounds).
  • Have a solid understanding of SQL databases and domain modeling
  • Get jazzed when presented with a challenging problem to solve
  • Enjoy succeeding as part of a team
  • Are happiest when you’re able to pivot between heads down solo work and collaborative sessions with your teammates

Then we’d love to hear from you!
