What we do

Pave is building a Cashflow API that allows fintech developers and data scientists to connect their data sources and retrieve clean & unified insights into their consumers’ spending habits, bills, earnings profile, and account health.

We're abstracting the data cleaning and transformation efforts necessary to get a single view of a consumer’s finances so that fintech companies can rapidly build budgeting features, recommendations engines, risk models, and more.

We believe that by lowering the friction of extracting financial insights from the growing number of data sources, we can help accelerate the development of innovative and inclusive financial products. We’re on a mission to enable builders to reinvent and lower the cost of financial services.

Background

There are a growing number of companies helping people gain access to digital financial services, whether it’s low-interest loans, payment installment solutions, integrated insurance offerings, fee-less banking, personalized budgeting, wage advances, or investment solutions.

We believe financial services will exist for every consumer segment, especially underserved segments including female professionals, refugee communities, creators, immigrants, retirees, gig workers, and so forth. We are not original in this thought - this is already happening.

Building equitable financial services for underserved consumer segments requires expensive resources, infrastructure, and analysis into new types of datasets. However, the cost to clean, transform, and analyze these new datasets is high, and every company is forced to do the same bespoke work on the same data sources. This is significant time and cost, and impeding the mission around expanding financial inclusion.

We're 3x founders with a history of launching successful data products, and we're partnered with awesome fintech investors including Bessemer Ventures, Village Global, Better Tomorrow Ventures, 8VC, and execs from Coinbase, Chime, and Sofi.

The Role
At Pave, you will have the opportunity to develop the foundational systems, tools, and processes the next generation of fintech startups are being built upon. We’re constructing the insights layer that lives between raw fintech data sources and the applications ingesting them.

Our data pipelines process millions (and soon billions!) of financial records in order to reliably return clean, actionable insights to fintech applications within seconds and we need someone to help us shape the future of personal finance!

We’re building on a modern stack! In your day-to-day you’ll be working with: Python, FastAPI, RDS Postgres, Kubernetes (EKS), Pants Build, Github Actions, Label Studio, Terraform. We leverage the industry best practices to deploy multiple times per day and go through fast iterations on our product.

The Team

We’re a 12 person team of hungry, mission driven individuals bent on leveling the playing field of financial services. We’re a small team (though not for long!) looking for someone to have an active hand in defining our company’s culture.

Some initiatives you will help lead:

Engineering

    • Construct a smart caching system to ensure our insights are fast and always up-to-date
    • Implement an asynchronous event streaming system
    • Develop new insights and improve existing API endpoints
    • Deploy CI/CD pipelines to integrate, build and action our insights

Analytics, ML, and Data Infrastructure

    • Expand and optimize our data labeling workflows leveraging open-source frameworks, active learning, and online learning
    • Productionalize analytics and insights, heuristics or ML
    • Make collaborative decisions as we build our ML infrastructure and pipelines from the ground up
    • Write and automate ETL pipelines, transform data, implement DAGs.
    • Devise testing strategies to ensure the systems you’ve built are robust and can handle the billions of rows of data we’ll be throwing at it on a daily basis (unit testing, smoke testing, load testing)

You'll be a great fit if:

    • You’re a team player, always ready to review pull requests and give feedback
    • You’re a self-starter who is eager to ship code
    • You’re excited to be involved in all aspects of the product
    • You’re scrappy! You love proactively finding solutions to problems and you’ve got a get-it-done mindset
