Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.

As the trend towards eCommerce and “Buy Now, Pay Later” continues to accelerate, more and more retailers are becoming familiar with Affirm’s product offering as a way to grow their business while meeting their customer needs. This trend is compounded by Affirm’s increasingly diversified set of consumer financial products, increasing commitment to performance marketing acquisition, and an increasing number of platform partnerships that expand a retailer’s ability to make use of Affirm to grow their business

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills with a talent for precise articulations of customer problems
  • Experience managing technical software products from kick-off to post-launch

  • The ability to turn incomplete, conflicting, or ambiguous inputs into solid action plans that are grounded in customer needs
  • An obsession for getting the details right, but also knowing how to ship on time
  • A drive to question assumptions and validate hypotheses
