Who We Are

Self is a venture-backed, financial services startup based in Austin, TX. Our mission is to help millions of people build credit and save money on their journey toward financial security.


There are about 100 million people in the US who have low credit scores or who have no access to credit at all. Sadly, there aren’t many options for these people. Most banks aren’t doing anything material to change the situation because it’s not profitable for them to do so. 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. If you are passionate about helping others become financially secure, we want to chat with you


What You Will Do

  • Manage the day to day operations and oversee the vendor relationships as they ramp to provide Tier 1 level support across the omni-channel.  
  • Manage our Training & Quality Control Specialist team to drive continuous improvement across our overall team, involving onboarding and vendor enablement, and ongoing training
  • Manage the day to day operations of our mail operations team, located in our HQ including procurement and mail handling (check processing, printing, mailing, scanning, etc)   
  • Partner with peers to meet or exceed KPI targets and lead a highly efficient and effective team that delivers the highest quality CSAT/NPS
  • Be the voice of the customer to your cross-functional stakeholders to drive product and tool improvements
  • Recruit and lead hiring of new team members. Own all HR aspects for your team, including performance improvement planning.
  • Report KPI successes and challenges to the leadership team. Report metrics on a weekly, monthly and quarterly basis.


What You Bring

  • 10+ years working in online operations, customer support, or financial technology industry required
  • 5+ years of experience people management experience required
  • 4+ years of experience working with outsourcing vendors required
  • Must have been in a high-volume support/call center/customer success role previously
  • Strong business problem solving instincts
  • High EQ and ability to build rapport with team members and stakeholders
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills
  • Strong ability to adapt in a fast-moving, startup environment
  • Service Cloud knowledge strongly preferred.
  • You must be located in the Austin, Texas area and be comfortable working in an office environment practicing social distancing during COVID. Comfortable managing a team that is remote during COVID. Comfortable managing a team that is distributed worldwide as part of our vendor management.

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!
