We’re improving on traditional underwriting models through high levels of scalable automation, machine learning algorithms, and other “big ­data” analysis to lower the cost of borrowing and improve the user experience for our clients.

Data is at the core of our DNA and we are looking for an experienced lead Data Engineer/Data Scientist to develop the architecture that helps analyze and process data for real time machine learning for risk, fraud and marketing purposes.
