Engineering Manager

Job description

Do you want to be part of a fast-growing startup while making a positive impact on the world?

About StudentFinance
StudentFinance is a venture-backed company with the mission of removing barriers to education and empower economic mobility.

We deeply believe in the power of education and that access to education should not depend on one's financial background. Currently, millions of people are in need of reskilling and are not able to fulfil their potential due to financial barriers.

So we are building the technological, data, and financial infrastructure to offer outcomes-based financing. Through Income Share Agreements, people defer the tuition payment and only start making payments after getting a job. ISAs are all about aligned incentives, and so are we at StudentFinance. Our end game is supporting our customer's transition to employment and financial health.

To get there, we are building a world-class team of purpose-driven and entrepreneurial people, working in a remote setting from cities across Europe.
