Join Upstart as our Information Security Architect, where you will bring security controls into our cloud infrastructure. Reporting to the Head of information Security, you will set up security incident and event management within Upstart. You’ll play a key role in ensuring security controls through design and architecture in our infrastructure, creating protocols for how we restrict access and data to specific users, and identifying and rectifying cases in which our infrastructure and data processing applications/databases isn’t secure or secure enough. You will also be a thought leader and represent Upstart at security conferences and events. As one of the first members of this team, you will also have an opportunity for growth into management.
Here is more about 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.
