Who We Are

Summer’s mission is to help the 45 million Americans burdened by student debt save time and money through smart, algorithm-based recommendations. Summer combines policy expertise and innovative technology to serve student loan borrowers across the country. Our founding team draws on years of experience in public policy, law, consumer finance, and engineering to tackle one of the greatest challenges of our generation.

We’re registered as a public benefit corporation as part of our commitment to helping all borrowers improve their financial health through better repayment strategies. We recently raised our Series A and are backed by a team of world-class investors, including General Catalyst, NextView, Greycroft, Foundation Capital, Story Ventures, and QED Investors—and our first partner is Yale University.

Your Role

Are you an innovative problem-solver? We’re looking for full-stack engineers driven to solve challenging problems in innovative ways. You will write modular, high-quality code while actively contributing to peer code reviews. And as part of our engineering team, you’ll play a key role in building both our product and our culture.

Recommended Experience

We are looking for experience building a complex product from scratch, preferably a platform with multiple integration points. A strong comfort level with modern JavaScript frameworks is also recommended (see our tech stack below). If you have relevant experience and are excited about fintech innovation at a startup that’s breaking down barriers to higher education, we’d love to chat!

Our application process includes a coding quiz and phone interview followed by in-person interviews with the founding team.

Technologies We Use: Node, Postgres, React, Redux

Values + Benefits

We're proud to be a mission-driven company with an inclusive culture. Our greatest asset is the set of values our team strives to embody every day in our office (located next to Grand Central): empathy, diversity, growth, determination, humility, and fun. Read more about what these mean to us at

We also offer significant equity allocations, healthcare coverage, and flexible vacation/PTO.

Sound interesting? We look forward to hearing from you. Join us to help fix the system!
