Job Responsibilities

At January, we work to ensure that borrowers who fall behind on debt are treated with dignity. Owing to outdated processes and bad actors, traditional debt collection is rife with harassment and fraud. Our products tackle this by helping financial institutions modernize collections, giving borrowers simpler and more compassionate ways to get back on track.

But this is only scratching the surface—we think there’s more ways to solve this problem than our existing offerings. We want you to play a pivotal role in building those products.

What’s In It For You

Software Engineers at January aren’t just responsible for writing code. You’ll also own product and team outcomes, advocate for customers, and help other engineers grow.

At the same time, January is deeply invested in your growth as an engineer. You’ll work with your manager to craft a development plan with personalized career goals and we’ll give you the support and resources to help achieve those goals.

The Main Ways You’ll Impact The Business Are
  • Borrower Experience. You’ll work to make the collections experience simpler and more empathetic for borrowers, improving recoveries. This might include running experiments to improve conversion, analyzing user behavior to find opportunities, and designing reinforcement learning models to automate decision making.
  • Client Experience. Build simple, best-in-class tools to help creditors engage with their borrowers, analyze effectiveness, and automate operations.
  • Technical Leverage. Develop simple solutions to complex technical scaling problems, improving developer leverage, reliability, security, and compliance. Depending on your areas of expertise, this may include infrastructure scaling, domain modeling, performance optimization, and continuous deployment.
  • Developing Peers. When you work at January, you work with a team that grows together. Regardless of your current level, you’ll share your knowledge of systems, engineering practices, and the problem domain, helping ensure everyone’s success. You’ll do this through code review, pair programming, documentation, and just plain being supportive.

As the company grows, you will be involved in scoping, architecting, and implementing new product lines. You’ll have the opportunity to build new lines of business from scratch.

You Might Be a Fit If You Value
  • Genuine collaboration. We recognize and explicitly reward feedback, alignment, and learning from each other.
  • Managers as advocates. You’ll report to leaders invested in your growth and promotion, not just their own. Managers only succeed when their teams thrive.
  • Outcomes over output. We value finding ways to do more with less, working smart instead of burning out.
  • Product ownership. Engineers are owners, not mercenaries. Everyone plays a role in discovering, advocating for, and implementing product ideas.
  • Technical quality. We work collaboratively with product to ensure great outcomes without sacrificing quality. Sustainable development is a first-class priority.
