You will lead our Bank Platform Operations team and be responsible for all operational workflows supporting card operations, incoming bank requests, compliance reviews (OFAC, KYC), credit disputes, and payment fraud investigations. Additionally, you will ensure accurate and timely financial reporting and reconciliation to our bank partners. You will grow and develop a rockstar team of operations specialists and analysts. You will perform project management duties in identifying reporting, tooling, and process improvements, as well as partner with our Product and Engineering teams to drive wins for our internal teams as well as our external partners. You will report to the VP of Operations.

Responsibilities:

  • Lead the bank platform operations organization in servicing our growing 500K+ active consumer loan and credit card portfolio
  • Manage and strengthen relationships with our credit card processor and bank partners

Benefits

Our compensation and benefits are competitive, but there's one thing that Self Financial can offer that many startups cannot: we can positively change the world, while making a profit.

  • Enjoy our vacation policy – there is no policy, balance matters
  • Educational assistance
  • Free gym membership

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!
