Nova Credit is a fintech company that enables immigrants to access capital and realize their potential. Nova Credit emerged from a Stanford University research project and is now the world’s premier cross-border credit bureau. Our API enables property managers & tenant screeners to access a single, predictive cross-border credit database to rent properties to immigrants and other global citizens.  
Nova Credit was founded by a team of socially-driven entrepreneurs out of Stanford.  We are graduates of Y Combinator, a 2017 LendIt Winner, a 2017 Lend360 Winner, and JP Morgan: Center for Financial Services Innovation Winner. We’re backed by an incredible group of investors including First Round Capital, Index Ventures, NYCA, Core Innovation Capital, and various founders and thought leaders in fintech and financial services.
We’re passionate about inclusion and committed to building a diverse, and fulfilling work culture.
You will play an essential role in building and managing our relationships with property managers & tenant screening platforms. You will collaborate closely with our COO in scaling our property management strategy, as well as working across the organisation to successfully implement it. In practice, you will be working across our go-to-market funnel: from initial contact, to partnership negotiations, to solution and product development, to customer success, to the strategic dynamics of working through both direct and indirect channels. We offer a terrific opportunity for someone who loves complex sales while also getting their hands dirty.
