Self Financial Austin , TX 78701

Posted 1 week ago

Self Financial, Inc. is a venture-backed, financial services startup based in Austin, TX. At Self, our mission is to help millions of people build credit and save money on their journey toward financial security.

There are about 100 million people in the US who have low credit scores or who have no access to credit at all. Sadly, there arent many options for these people. Most banks arent doing anything material to change the situation because its not profitable for them to do so. Bad credit or no credit history can be barriers to renting an apartment or getting certain jobs, let alone buying a car or house. And if you can get a loan with a low credit score, youre very likely to pay a lot more in interest over the life of that loan.

If you are someone who is equally passionate as we are, we want to chat with you.

About our team:

We're a growing team of passionate engineers working with modern technology to help people build credit and savings. Weve rebuilt and launched our website and our mobile app in the last year, which now serves thousands of customers. We launched our second product, a secured credit card to give our customers access to their savings.

About the role:

You will implement a user experience that can be seamless for Android, iOS, and Web users. You will integrate the front-end elements with our Rest APIs and other 3rd-party services. You will develop the services and infrastructure needed to provide essential customer-facing solutions at a massive scale. You will work with designers, product managers and other team members in brainstorming new ideas, developing features, gathering feedback and iterating, thereby providing impactful improvement to our products. You will report to an engineering manager and work with our amazing team of professional engineers.
