Technical Product Manager (Remote)
Posted on Friday, January 28, 2022
At Spinwheel we’re on a mission to improve the way Americans understand, manage and pay their debt. By giving consumers a full picture of their student loans, credit cards, auto loans, mortgage (the list goes on), we can drive responsible actions to improve financial health. This should live where the consumers are, and our partners use our platform to embed these tools into their own apps.
We are building a team as diverse as the markets we serve. Spinwheel provides you an opportunity to get in early at a fast-paced startup and make an outsized impact while working with a passionate, results-oriented and fun team.
Building out our API platform and low-code UX components, you will enable the next wave of innovation in fintech. You are a detail-oriented technical product manager looking to take on more responsibility and drive the delivery of solutions to help 1) partners integrate our debt offerings and 2) consumers be smarter and savvier about managing loans, credit cards, etc.
As a self starter, you want to be pointed in a direction and given the freedom to bring it all together-- user experience, technical requirements, marketing coordination--into compelling offerings which partners can integrate and consumers will love.
You may not have direct borrowing or lending experience, but a basic understanding of the student debt and U.S. consumer debt ecosystem will be helpful.
