We're looking for people who share our passion and are driven to tackle challenges, find solutions and make the financial space better for the communities we serve.

 

Our team is passionate about challenging the status quo of the credit industry by providing people accessible tools to take control of their credit.

In addition, you will be accountable for all relationship management of Partner banks, Credit bureaus, payment processing partners, & card networks (Visa, MC, etc.). This will require you to review and interpret contracts, outline gaps in existing processes, manage the day-to-day interactions and follow ups to support those relationships. You will use relationships to influence and negotiate on various business needs, including delivering difficult messages related to business decisions. 

Responsibilities may evolve within the above description as you become more senior in the role.

  • Create KPIs and monitoring of all functions related to credit bureau reporting
  • Review all bank partner and vendor contracts and outline key requirements and deliverables against those requirements
  • Establish working relationships with all key vendors and partners, and formalize requests and concerns to address timely

What you bring:

  • Demonstrate understanding of operational risk factors related to credit bureau monitoring and reporting
  • 25% travel domestic & international (required)
  • Exceptional communication skills and experience in group settings, with the ability to deliver a message
  • Project management experience with the ability to work independently and self-solve for delivery obstacles 
  • Ability to adapt to change in a fast-paced environment and make judgmental business decisions with minimal need for managerial support 
  • A keen eye for process improvement and efficiency modification to reduce cost & improve customer experience 
  • Operate with a limited level of direct supervision, making decisions based on data and facts

 

Benefits and Perks:

We have the compensation and benefits you expect. But, there's one thing that Self Financial can offer that many startups cannot: we can positively change the world while making a profit. We are a team of Builders, empowering our customers to build their dreams. We have a Do the Right Thing ethos in all that we do, and we hope you value that approach, too.

An Insider's view of Self Financial

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We are constantly growing and facing new challenges, but everyone works well together. Our company events are always fun and a good way to get to know each other better. We are a very tight-knit group, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Joanna

Customer Success Team Lead

What projects are you most excited about?

The best part about being at a company at this stage is being able to build data infrastructure and marketing programs from the ground up. I'm most excited to build out our entire retention marketing strategy to drive increased user engagement. We're utilizing a great growth automation system that allows us to do some really cool things.

Tim

Director of User Acquisition

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining Self, I've had the opportunity to develop my skills in both our frontend and backend repos. I've also learned a lot about working together with stakeholders to create new features or resolve bugs. I definitely feel like a stronger engineer having worked on this team and learning so much from my colleagues about maintainable code.

Kristin

What is your vision for the company?

Most financial institutions cast aside those considered low-to-moderate income. We help people with fundamental aspects of financial health – building credit, using it wisely and saving money. My goal is to continue building a company of highly talented and collaborative people driven by a mission of helping people achieve financial stability.

Brett

Chief Marketing Officer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a fast paced work environment, collaboration is key. It’s great to work with people who are willing to help each other out. If you have a question, it’s as easy as walking to their desk to ask!
