Job Description:

About us: LendUp is a financial technology startup based in Oakland focused on transforming the subprime credit and lending space. We're a Y-Combinator alum (YC W12) backed by prominent investors such as Google Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, Kleiner Perkins, and Kapor Capital. Our product is being used in 7 states and we've seen great press coverage in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, CNN, NBC, TechCrunch, Venturebeat, Inc, Wired, Bloomberg, Fortune, and Dow Jones, amongst others. What we're doing: At LendUp we are on a mission to provide anyone with a pathway to better financial health. Millions of people don't have access to quality credit. Their options are often limited and unfair, and it's easy to become trapped in a debt cycle. This is the first problem LendUp set out to solve, by applying our combined expertise in software, data science, credit, and education, to our shared passion for financial health and dignity. Our core product, the LendUp Ladder, is an alternative to payday loans that transforms a trap into an opportunity to borrow at lower rates and build credit. And every day, we see our customers succeed. We're building additional financial products that will help us further accelerate our mission of providing anyone with a path to better financial health. LendUp is looking for a Full Stack Engineer to join our Engineering team.
