Possible Finance is a mission-driven fintech that offers financial services to millions of consumers in the US who are underserved by the mainstream financial system. Through Possible Loan, the only small dollar loan in the market that helps build credit history, we’ve put over $500M into the hands of more than 600K customers using our machine learning-based credit decisioning engine that doesn’t rely on credit score. Using this same proprietary credit risk technology, we’re also launching the Possible Card, the only unsecured credit card with zero interest or late fees—ever—as the next chapter in our journey to provide affordable access to capital to underserved consumers.

The Platform team is responsible for the company IT infrastructure, and much of the framework infrastructure for our application, both backend and frontend. It is a small team but has a large impact and a large variety of work needed.

We seek a Senior Software Engineer, an SRE Superstar, a software engineer with a strong SRE/DevOps focus.
