As a Technical Program Manager (TPM), you’ll work closely with Data, Engineering, and Product to help define, manage, and scale our technical/data-centric projects upon which many high-impact initiatives are built (e.g. scaling Credit Passport internationally, Cash flow underwriting with Cash-atlas). You’ll also be interfacing with most of the GTM teams that would consume part of the outputs of these projects. It will be key to deliver these projects while promoting effective communication, producing internal & external documentation, and continuously improving our processes. Keeping engineering & data quality high will be of the utmost importance.

As our first TPM, you will play a crucial role in helping define what excellence looks like for the function and what culture to bring to the trade. For a more in-depth look at our engineering culture today, check out our page on Key Values.
