Company Overview: Nova is a FinTech startup founded at Stanford with a mission to enable immigrants access to credit to realize their potential. We are building the world’s first cross-border credit reporting agency that connects US lenders to international consumer credit data, so that they can underwrite more immigrants more fairly. We’re a team of internationals with first-hand experience of credit challenges in the US, and we’re passionate about solving this problem while stretching ourselves to grow and build an amazing team.
People move. Credit history doesn’t. We’re changing that.
What you’ll do: Lead or co-develop a number of projects on product. Examples are: – Brainstorming and implementing core credit analytics features and scoring algorithms – Work with our CTO to drive product design and execution. You will have autonomy over a project you find interesting. This can be a full-stack, front-end or back-end – Implementing a solid foundation for the scaling up of our systems – We’re open to new ideas so if there are other projects you want to do – let’s talk!
You’ll be a great fit if you… – Have personal experience and/or empathy with the challenge of accessing credit – Have experience in web-development, preferably node.js and/or front-end – Excel at execution and feel a sense accomplishment when a project (and product) launches – Are interested, and possibly have experience, in the intersection of finance + technology – Have studied or are studying CS/Engineering
Key internship details: – Minimum of 8 weeks between July 5 – September 30 – Stipend of $400/week
