As an Underwriting Analyst you will…

Be the go-to person for preparing all applications for their incredibly efficient Underwriting team to review.

You will be regularly approached by the Sales and Underwriting teams to discuss applications, as well as asking if you want a game of ping pong (yes, they have ping pong tables).This is a great opportunity to have a lasting impact on small business owners and thereby help our client achieve their mission of Building a Better Financial World. You’ll also have the exciting responsibility of emailing the Borrowers their successful loan offer and then list them on the platform to be funded.
