Our customers are searching for credit enhancement solutions to repair and effectively build their credit histories to future proof their standings against further financial volatility.

* Use your experience and draw from others as we navigate the challenges that come with scaling.

Our Stack

What are we looking for?

* Experience with a startup during their 'scale-up' phase. We are entering this period and your learnings of growing teams as well as tacking the inevitable technical challenges that come with a growing user base will be valuable.

* Strong Ruby on Rails skills and knowledge.

* Adaptability, the ability to keep cool, and great teaching skills.
