Flex is an early-stage, remote-first FinTech startup that is bringing flexible payments to recurring bills. It’s hard to believe that it’s 2022 and you’re still not able to choose when you pay your bills. Flex is here to change that! Flex is a multi-bill platform. We began by revolutionizing rent — Americans’ largest recurring bill. We enable our users to pay rent and bills throughout the month on a schedule that better fits their finances. With Flex, everybody can better manage their bills and budget. After deliberately keeping a stealth profile as we built up unprecedented investor support and an enthusiastic user base, we plan to scale to 300 team members in 2022. Will you be a part of the team?

The Credit Policy Manager role is part of the Credit & Risk team, which focuses on Credit Underwriting and Fraud Prevention. This leader will be responsible for building account level performance-prediction models, and incorporating these models into our valuation frameworks. The analyst will also be expected to use these models and tools to recommend changes to automated underwriting policies, including changing pricing, line assignment, and approval decisions. The manager will work closely with finance, analytics, and development teams across the organization, to ensure flawless execution of recommended policy changes, and to build analytic tools to scale the productivity of the team. 


We are looking for enthusiastic people with strong integrative thinking and analytic skills and the ability to operate in a white-space environment. The Manager is expected to be able to work with other Flex team members across multiple functional roles including Analytics, Sales, Customer Service, and Product Development teams located across geographies. This individual is expected to be able to communicate to senior level audiences. As the portfolio grows, the Manager is expected to build and lead a team.
