About the job



Self Financial, Inc. is a rapidly growing venture-backed financial services startup based in Austin, Texas dedicated to helping American consumers build credit and savings on their journey toward financial security.


There are about 100 million people in the US who have low credit scores or no access to credit, and whose needs are underserved by traditional financial services providers. Bad credit or no credit history can be barriers to renting an apartment or getting certain jobs, let alone buying a car or house. And if you can get a loan with a low credit score, you’re very likely to pay a lot more in interest over the life of that loan. Self, in partnership with its issuing banks, provides these consumers with tools to help them achieve their credit and savings goals on terms that work for them. We believe our high customer satisfaction ratings, including a 4.9 rating on the App Store from over 90,000 reviews, demonstrate our success. We also work in partnership with leading nonprofits focused on financial wellness, including Operation Hope and the Financial Health Network.


Our team is passionate about challenging the status quo of the credit industry by giving people accessible and affordable tools to take control of their credit. Executing on our mission requires deep collaboration across our teams to ensure our products reach the people who can most benefit from them.


We're looking for people who share a passion for our mission. At Self, we want to work with people who are driven to tackle challenges, bring unique perspectives, find solutions and help better serve underserved consumers.

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!


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.


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.


Software Engineer

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.


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!
