EDGE ( is expanding credit access for consumers unserved and underserved by traditional credit reports and scores. Over 100 million Americans can’t borrow at mainstream rates because they’re credit invisible, unscoreable by conventional standards, or rated below prime by traditional risk methods. Armed with powerful insights from open banking data and the leading cashflow underwriting data lake, EDGE is disrupting the risk assessment paradigm that hasn’t changed much since the big credit bureaus were actually giant file drawers. 

Our business is at an inflection point where we’ve proven the platform’s value with early adopters and are rapidly scaling across key verticals. As part of this ramp-up, EDGE is hiring an entrepreneurial and versatile Marketing Director to own and elevate all aspects of our marketing. Building on the foundation we’ve bootstrapped up to now, the right candidate will bring experience across all marketing disciplines in order to define our marketing strategy then maximize ROI. 

You’ll regularly engage with our product and sales leadership to continuously improve EDGE’s go-to-market motion and related deliverables with opportunity for significant impact from day one and rapid advancement as you build a scalable, best-in-class marketing function from scratch.
