Job Description

Here at Upstart, we’re on a mission to reinvent lending by enabling effortless credit based on true risk. 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 ambitious engineers to join a new growth engineering squad focused on bringing more borrowers onto the Upstart platform and ultimately accelerate the company’s pace of learning. A data driven approach, penchant for rapid experimentation, and desire to work closely with our marketing, product and design teams are a must for this squad. You'll enjoy significant autonomy while making a meaningful impact by digging through data to uncover product insights, designing and implementing A/B tests and executing broader growth platform improvements.

Your role:

  • Build, ship and maintain product features and platform improvements on a regular basis to support a wide range of acquisition channels and funnel conversion strategies.
  • Analyze data to uncover product insights, design and implement A/B tests and incorporate learnings into new experiments and features.
  • Apply software engineering best practices to increase 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 2+ years of software development experience.
  • Understand modern web engineering and are comfortable in at least one major full-stack and JavaScript/JS framework (we use Ruby on Rails and React, but are open to all backgrounds).
  • Have strong product and user experience intuition and a passion for understanding what drives successful products and brainstorming creative product ideas to increase growth.
  • Enjoy cross-functional collaboration and driving technical and product initiatives across multiple layers of architecture.
  • Are familiar with A/B testing or have worked in a fast-paced highly iterative product environment.
  • Are motivated by building projects that have a direct and measurable impact on core business metrics.

Then we’d love to hear from you!
