The Opportunity

Over the past decade, we’ve seen a number of fintechs and digital-native brands build massive audiences. Today, the momentum continues and these players are looking for alternatives to increase brand loyalty and expand financial product offerings. Digital card / payment products present a huge opportunity for fintechs and brands to monetize their audiences. However, these products are highly complex, costly, and time-consuming to build and deploy.

We are assembling a team of entrepreneurs, technologists, and financial services experts. If you are excited about building better solutions to help US-based fintechs and brands launch credit cards, we would love to hear from you.

Who We’re Looking For

An accomplished technical co-founder to lead the engineering build of a credit card issuance / payments / lending platform: grow an engineering team over time and build a high-quality product.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Work closely with the founding CEO to define the product vision and technical strategy, and ultimately drive the execution of this vision
  • Set up the technology infrastructure, processes, and best practices for a credit card issuance platform from the ground up - selecting stack, defining architecture, etc.
  • Be hands-on in delivering the MVP of the product, working alongside early pilot partners 
  • Build and manage development roadmap, define and track KPIs, progress, and budget
  • Build and lead a passionate engineering team to continually develop the product in alignment with the broader strategy and vision
  • Work with compliance, regulatory and legal teams to ensure that the technical processes adhere to all banking, lending and network requirements


  • 5+ years of relevant experience, with related technical education or qualifications; ideally in building and scaling fintech technical solutions in the US
  • Experience building highly performant and reliable API solutions for technology companies
  • Capability to drive product build on both front-end and back-end with a start-up/agile mindset
  • Proven track record in technical leadership roles, hiring, managing and growing a team

Nice to Have:

  • Experience at an early-stage or fast-growing startup
  • Familiarity with regtech and security solutions to meet the requirements of regulators and customers (SOC 2, GDPR, KYC/AML, etc.)
  • Digital wallet (Apple, Google, Android) / electronic payments experience


  • Significant equity ownership
  • Competitive compensation
  • Market competitive health insurance and benefits

Please note: This is not an employee opportunity at Diagram Ventures, but in a new company created by Diagram Ventures. This company will be independent from Diagram Ventures, and the founding team will collectively receive the majority of the equity in this new company.
