At Nova Credit, our mission is to power a more fair and inclusive financial system for the world. Nova Credit’s diverse global team is stitching together the world's credit data into a single network to unlock financial opportunities for immigrants and other populations historically excluded from the credit system. We’ve built a platform that enables lenders to access a single, predictive cross-border credit database to help enable underwriting decisions. We are backed by leading investors, including Kleiner Perkins, General Catalyst, and Index Ventures.

This is a full-time role and can be fully remote anywhere in the contiguous U.S. For a more in-depth look at our engineering culture, check out our page on Key Values.

NOVA CREDIT'S INTERVIEW PROCESS:

    • Step 1: The phone screen gives us a chance to learn more about you, your goals, and your interests. It’s also a chance for you to learn about us and get answers to your questions. 
    • Step 2: The technical assessment (a one-hour coding challenge) is intended to give you a taste of what you’ll be doing at Nova Credit. We avoid asking algorithmic questions, so you can expect to be asked to complete more practical tasks, such as working with an existing API, parsing JSON responses, or building a UI component.
    • Step 3: The final round will give you the opportunity to meet additional engineers, have a conversation with your potential manager and expose you to the Nova Credit culture. It is broken down into three one-hour technical sessions (coding challenges/systems design sessions), a forty-five-minute chat with the hiring manager, and a debrief with our Head of Engineering.
Base Salary Range for U.S.-based candidates: $198,000 - $234,000, dependent on the candidate’s individual experience, skills, education, location, and qualifications.

This may include base salary, equity grants, incentive compensation for eligible roles, professional development, flexible PTO, and tenure rewards. We offer U.S.-based Novans competitive, employer-subsidized medical, dental, and vision plans, in addition to mental health and wellness benefits and a range of other benefits & perks.
