About the role

About Prodigal

Backed by leading investors like Menlo Ventures, Accel and Y-Combinator, Prodigal grew nearly 10-fold over the last year due to rapidly increasing demand for our products. In order to build on this momentum, we are looking for leaders in our expansion journey. You will work closely with the Co-Founders, CEO, Board and key stakeholders to educate and reinforce our mission.

Prodigal is building an iconic vertical software business that will fundamentally impact how the multi-trillion dollar lending industry operates. Prior to Prodigal, the industry was saddled with painful, low-value manual workflows, and poor customer experience. Our mission is to humanize the loan lifecycle through automation and data.

We are defining a new category of intelligence - one that drives dynamic decisioning based on interactions. As we build, these articles shape our thinking. We draw on lessons from giants and unicorns — but myths aren’t part of the ethos. Instead, Prodigal is grounded in reality, committed to using these lessons to improve the daily work of lenders and collectors as we expand our business, support consumers, and change the consumer finance landscape.

This is an opportunity for accelerated personal growth with a team that has an ambitious vision, technology to back it up and tier 1 investors.
