About Prodigal

We are a fast-growing Bay Area-based startup backed by leading investors like Menlo Ventures, Accel and Y-Combinator. We conducted our Series-A fundraise in 2021, and we have continued to grow aggressively, yet cautiously. To continue with our growth trajectory as we keep disrupting consumer finance, we are looking to hire a Chief of Staff to help our leadership make effective decisions and drive our mission critical projects.

Our core product offering helps automate lending operations for financial services firms across the lending value chain. The Prodigal team has deep technical talent today and we believe there is an opportunity to build an iconic vertical software business that will fundamentally impact how the multi-trillion-dollar debt industry is managed. Debt has such a massive impact on consumers and prior to Prodigal, the industry was saddled with painful, low-value manual workflows, and poor customer experience- our mission is to humanize the debt repayment process through automation and data.
