Pinwheel - Building a fairer financial system by unlocking API access to payroll systems.
More than half of Americans have a poor credit score or no score at all. Since most financial institutions rely on traditional credit scoring to assess risk, that means these people can't access affordable financial products. Instead, they resort to high-interest credit cards, payday loans, and trigger overdraft fees to make ends meet — which ultimately push them into deeper cycles of debt.
Pinwheel provides an API platform that makes it easy to connect payroll accounts like ADP and Gusto to any app. By unlocking the wealth of identity, income and employment data that sits in these systems, alongside direct access to paychecks, we can help innovators build the next generation of financial products that increase access for the underserved while improving the businesses of our partner fintechs, banks, and lenders.
Who are we looking for?
As a product owner, you will play a key factor in driving Pinwheel’s next stage of growth. At Pinwheel, Product development is an extremely collaborative effort between engineering, design, and customer-facing teams. More concretely, you will be responsible for:
- Driving innovative products for our banking customers and prospects to help them win primacy and increase LTV.
- Establishing yourself as a thought leader and acting as a steward for customer centricity both internally and externally.
- Working closely with Pinwheel sales, engineering, marketing, and design teams to bring your vision to reality.
- Developing systems so projects deliver high-quality results even if you’re not involved day-to-day.
What experience, skills, and qualifications are necessary?
- 5-7+ years of experience in product within B2B tech. Preferably, within startup or fintech environments that have sold into enterprise customers.
- Ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment.
- Experience with 0-to-1 product launches and products at scale.
- Strong quantitative analysis skills.
- Strong written communication skills.
- Nice-to-have: experience building infrastructure APIs (and the challenges that come with their slower adoption and iteration cycles).
Best Time to Join - Our company is small but well-funded, meaning you get the upside of starting on the bottom floor with minimal risk.
Be a Cultural Founder - You will have an active hand in molding the company culture and being a part of the entrepreneurial journey.
