The Petal mission
At Petal, we're using fresh thinking & cutting-edge technology to make credit honest, simple & accessible. We use machine learning to analyze more data in our credit decisions, which means more people qualify, even if they've never had credit before. And we use behavioral science & smart, intuitive design to offer a simple, customer-centric product that's engineered to achieve better financial outcomes -- with straightforward terms & no fees whatsoever. The result is an exciting new approach to credit that has the potential to radically expand credit access & improve the lives of millions of consumers, shaking up a trillion dollar industry in the process.
To do this, we're bringing together exceptional talent from across disciplines & industries to shape the future of financial services & improve the lives of our customers in a meaningful way.
At Petal, we're looking for people with kindness, positivity, & integrity. You're encouraged to apply even if your experience doesn't precisely match the job description. Your skills & potential will stand out-and set you apart-especially if your career has taken some extraordinary twists & turns. At Petal, we welcome diverse perspectives from people who think rigorously & aren't afraid to challenge assumptions.
We're looking for an inspirational technical leader ready to reinvent consumer finance. A successful candidate has significant people management experience, sharp business acumen, big-picture strategic vision, an innate collaborative style, & strong technology fundamentals. And since Petal is still a fast-growing startup, we'll need someone with a track record of building something from nothing-hiring, developing processes, & reorganizing to fit business priorities.
The VP of Engineering is the leader of the Engineering team & convenes the resources, maps out the approach, & oversees the technical execution of the company vision & product roadmap.
