About the Role:
Upstart is a fast-growing and profitable fin-tech company revolutionizing how people access credit. We use data science and automation to make smarter lending decisions.... And we need amazing Software Engineers that are driven to move quickly and build robust systems o make that happen.
Our engineers work on all aspects of the Upstart platform, from our data prediction model to our backend financial platform, to our web interfaces and 3rd party API integrations. You'll enjoy significant autonomy in architecting systems, writing algorithms, and crafting elegant user interfaces. Upstart engineers appreciate that a job at Upstart means they have the chance to solve challenges with interesting engineering constraints, work in a distributed system, and collaborate with data scientists.
Our engineering team is broken into product-oriented squads, giving engineers direct access to the end-user and the ability to launch features without being blocked. We’ve also designed the squad system to enable constant learning: engineers have the chance to rotate squads every 6 months to learn new parts of the codebase and business.
About what we're looking for:
