About the role

Prelim is simplifying how people and businesses apply for bank accounts, loans and other financial services.

Prelim is how banks onboard their customers for business checking accounts, personal loans, etc online. Prelim is a platform that banks white label to match the bank's design that automates the digital opening of all the bank's products and services.

Join us as we increase access to banking and financial services, helping banks and financial institutions provide a better, more modern experience. We're a fully remote US team, and are live with several of the largest banks in America. We're still under 10, and you'd be joining the engineering team while it's still under 5.

You will:

  • Work up and down the stack, from UX to backend.
  • Triage issues
  • Work with the team to build new product features, focusing on the overall architecture and implementation.
  • Help keep the product secure by building, maintaining and understanding security features.

You may be a fit for this role if you:

  • Have experience working on both the frontend and backend.
  • Think about modularity and write high quality code. We work mostly in React and Node.js. However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.
  • Hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems.
  • Are self-­aware, have a positive attitude, a sense of humor, and are empathetic.

Why you should join Prelim

Prelim is simplifying the go-to-market digital originations process for banks, helping banks help people.

Banks spend billions of dollars on one-size fits all solutions to originate their products. When banks want to do something as simple as change copy, or add a new set of questions, banks are forced to either pay per hour, seek out a new vendor, or build it themselves.

This makes banks inflexible to respond to changing market needs, sometimes forcing banks to post a pdf on their website just to get something live. This occurred at some of the largest banks in the United States when trying to roll out the Paycheck Protection Program.

Our templates, drag and drop integrations, and no-code form builder allow banks to quickly deploy in days, not years, with significantly lower costs and higher quality.
