Test Automation Engineer

Company: Self Financial, Inc.
Location: Austin
Posted on: February 20, 2021

Job Description:

Self Financial, Inc. helps consumers establish and build a credit history. We are a venture-backed financial services startup based in Austin, TX. At Self, our mission is to help millions of people build credit and save money on their journey toward financial security.

About 100 million people in the US have low credit scores or have no access to credit at all. Sadly, there aren't many options for these people. Most banks aren't doing anything material to change the situation because it's not profitable for them to do so. Bad credit or no credit history can be barriers to renting an apartment or getting certain jobs, let alone buying a car or house. And if you can get a loan with a low credit score, you're very likely to pay a lot more in interest over the life of that loan.

Our team is passionate about challenging the status quo of the credit industry by giving people accessible and affordable tools to take control of their credit. Executing on our mission requires deep collaboration across our teams to ensure our products reach the people who can most benefit from them.

We're looking for people who share a passion for our mission and relate to why we do what we do. At Self, we want to work with people who are driven to tackle challenges, bring unique perspectives, find solutions and help make the financial space a better place for our consumers. We recognize that it takes different people and personalities to make our products - and our company - truly great. We only seek the best.

If you are equally passionate as we are, we want to chat with you.
