Our compliance team plays a critical role in mitigating risk and protecting Upstart’s growth and success, and as Upstart’s Compliance Manager, you will have tremendous impact on this critical team. Someone that is successful in this role won’t say “no”:, but say “No, BUT” by re-defining policies and improving practices. You’ll develop relationships of trust within the organization so that your role is a value add for the business unit. You’ll be a part of the conversation when new products or processes are developed versus getting involved after the fact. If you have previous compliance management experience and share our passion for consumer protection this could be the role for you.
Here is what you’ll be doing:
Founded by ex-Googlers, Upstart is the first lending platform to leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning to price credit and automate the borrowing process. The company's proprietary underwriting model identifies high-quality borrowers despite limited credit and employment history by using variables including schools attended, area of study, and work experience. Upstart offers 3-year and 5-year fixed-rate interest loans, which are primarily used to pay off credit cards, consolidate debt, make large purchases, or invest in vocational education.
In addition to its direct-to-consumer lending platform, Upstart provides technology to banks, credit unions and other partners via a “Software-as-a-Service” offering called Powered by Upstart.
