Job Description

At Earnest, we believe in a world where paying for your education takes less time than earning your degree.  Join us on our mission to empower anyone seeking higher education to reduce the total price tag of their degree, supercharge their ability to pay down student debt, and get on the right financial track fast.

A little background on Earnest: We're a remote first FinTech company with an accomplished team who believe consumer lending can be radically improved and are doing something about it. We are disrupting the trillion dollar student loan industry by redefining what it means to be creditworthy. We created a company that combines data science, streamlined design, and technology to:

  • Build products that simplify the lending process
  • Personalize loans to suit the needs of our customers
  • Engage with our customers through more human experiences

What makes an “Earnie” culture: 

Earnest’s culture is as dynamic as the products we’re building and defining every day. We’re a fast-growing company, and that means we’re constantly integrating the new perspectives of every individual.

Earnies define our culture as:

  • Earn Happy Customers
    • Our success comes from anticipating their needs and providing the solutions they’re looking for.
  • Better is Better
    • The path to great means getting better every day. We push ourselves, and each other, to remain curious and think differently. 
  •  PhD in Moving Fast
    • Our customers are tired of long wait times and large student loan bills so we constantly seek out ways to deliver faster.  
  •  Passion for Challenges
    • Perseverance and optimism are just the start to take on the inertia of a national trillion-dollar problem. 
  •  Impact is a Team Sport
    • We maximize our impact when we act as one team.

Our Earnie's are fun, innovative, and willing to rollup their sleeves to help their team succeed in a fast-paced environment. If this sounds like you, and you want to join us on our mission to radically disrupt a trillion dollar fintech industry, keep reading to find out how.
