Job description
Affirm is a data-driven financial technology company. Data is core to our decision making processes, from validating identities and detecting fraud, to credit underwriting and servicing. We seek to revolutionize the credit system by building more holistic, accurate, and democratic alternatives to incumbent systems and methods.

Machine learning is a critical tool in this effort, and as a member of the software engineering team, you will work on building, optimizing, and supporting these machine learning systems both offline and real time.

Build production machine learning models; your models will decide who we lend to in real time, and how we interact with our existing customers

Develop the core decisioning service supporting our machine learning models in production

Optimize the decisioning service with respect to the accuracy of the underlying models, the latency of different 3rd party data sources, and the expected financial cost of those data sources

Develop our understanding of new data sources and how they may improve our existing processes

Work closely with Affirm’s credit, risk, and analytics teams to understand our risk modeling strategy and the business drivers underlying that strategy

Skills & requirements
WHAT WE LOOK FOR

Deep understanding and experience with data engineering, data analysis, and statistical modeling, in the development of a real-time service

Strong proficiency writing production-quality code, preferably industry engineering experience with machine learning projects (e.g. recommendation, ranking, optimization)

Ability to work efficiently both solo and as part of a team; willingness to learn new things

Passion and drive to change consumer banking for the better, while developing a deeper understanding of applied machine learning
