About the role

About Method

🔮 Method Financial was founded in 2021 after our founders experienced first-hand the difficulties of embedding debt repayment into their app (GradJoy). They decided to build their own embedded banking service that allows developers to easily retrieve and pay any of their users' debts – including credit cards, student loans, car loans, and mortgages – all through a single API.

As a Top 10 Fintech Startup, we’re focused on providing the opportunity for ambitious and entrepreneurial individuals to have high levels of impact at the forefront of the fintech space. Continuous improvement, collaboration, and a clear mission bring us together in service of delivering the best products for our users. We are a remote-flexible team, striving to set up the best environment for everyone to be successful and we are excited to continue to grow.

We recently closed a $16 million Series A funding round led by Andreessen Horowitz, with participation from Truist Ventures, Y Combinator (Method’s a Y Combinator graduate), Abstract Ventures, SV Angel and others. We're also backed by founders and leaders of Truebill, Upstart, and Goldman Sachs.

The Impact

You’ll be a trusted advisor to the CEO & COO, helping the planning and execution of a wide variety of projects and processes, involving strategy, operations, and ad hoc special projects. This role will drive results, facilitating effective and focused discussions, and ensuring efficient operations. A successful candidate needs to be able to seamlessly use internal and external data and trends to set, communicate, and execute against the company's go-forward strategy. At the end of the day, you’ll get intimately familiar with what it means to be a CEO & COO of a high growth early stage technology startup!

What You’ll Do

  • You’ll support day-to-day operations of the CEO & COO and be a cross-functional team member

  • You will contribute to and coordinate mission-critical projects that impact Method’s Go-To-Market, Finance, Marketing and Product

  • Manage key stakeholder relationships and coordinate marketing efforts around product launches, thought leadership, and Method’s events presence

  • Aid the CEO & COO in prioritization of speaking opportunities, messaging needs, decision making and progress reviews

  • You will use data as your source of truth, effectively analyzing and reporting data points to help drive impactful decisions

  • You’ll need to be a master at conveying technical concepts in a digestible and relatable way

Who You Are

  • 4+ years of experience in consulting or investing, and/or demonstrated success in operations, growth, or strategy role for a high-growth start-up

  • Ability to think on your feet to creatively solve any problem and an appetite to take on a variety of tasks

  • You're a self-starter and excited to continuously learn and be challenged

  • Strong communication, analytical, research, and presentation skills

  • Located in Austin, TX or Washington, DC or willing to relocate to either city

Extra Awesome

  • Experience in the fintech/API space

  • Have been the founding member of a small team of 10 or under


We believe people do their best work when they are healthy and happy. Our founding team is in Austin, TX, and Washington, DC, but we are a remote-flexible company.
