Since 2010, we’ve helped millions improve their financial health, at no cost to them, by offering the best tools possible to access, understand, use, and protect their credit so they can lead better lives.

We are a fast-growing, nimble startup, and we succeed only because of our amazing teammates and our strong, positive culture.

We’re seeking a Technical Program Manager to spearhead our Data and Engineering projects and collaborate across teams in order to optimize workflows under tight deadlines. This is a high-impact role that owns and facilitates project development delivery.

Do you have a track record of leading features and projects through the development process? Are you naturally detail-oriented with a knack for making sure projects are delivered on time and within budget? Do you enjoy working across teams to ensure both consistent communication and a smooth development cycle? If so, this role is for you!

You’ll be…

    • collaborating with product managers and leads to define requirements and maintain a backlog;

    • ensuring a regular cadence of project delivery;
    • communicating project status updates at all management levels;
    • acting as a central point of contact for all project-related communications;
    • spearheading the teams’ use of Agile;
    • regularly interacting with senior management to provide  visibility into the scrum teams;

    • you’re able to communicate technical concepts to a non-technical audience;
    • you’ve been a Scrum Master, managing technical projects for 2-3 Agile teams;
