At January, we work to ensure that borrowers who fall behind on debt are treated with dignity. Owing to outdated processes and bad actors, traditional debt collection is rife with harassment and fraud. Our products tackle this by helping financial institutions modernize collections, giving borrowers simpler and more compassionate ways to get back on track.

Because of the pandemic, there’s never been a more important time for our mission.

But this is only scratching the surface—we think there’s more ways to solve this problem than our existing offerings. We want you to play a pivotal role in building those products.

What’s in it for you:

Engineers at January aren’t just responsible for writing code. You'll also own product and team outcomes, advocate for customers, and help other engineers grow.

The main ways you’ll impact the business are:

* Borrower experience. You’ll work to make the collections experience simpler and more empathetic for borrowers, improving recoveries. This might include running experiments to improve conversion, analyzing user behavior to find opportunities, and designing reinforcement learning models to automate decision making.
* Client experience. Build simple, best-in-class tools to help creditors engage with their borrowers, analyze effectiveness, and automate operations.
* Technical leverage. Develop simple solutions to complex technical scaling problems, improving developer leverage, reliability, security, and compliance. Depending on your areas of expertise, this may include infrastructure scaling, domain modeling, performance optimization, and continuous deployment.
* Developing peers. You'll level up other engineers by sharing your knowledge of systems, engineering practices, and the problem domain, helping ensure their success. You'll do this through code review, pair programming, documentation, and just plain being supportive.

As the company grows, you may also be involved in scoping, architecting, and implementing new product lines. You’ll have the opportunity to build new lines of business from scratch.

You may be a fit if you value:

  • Genuine collaboration. We recognize and explicitly reward feedback, alignment, and learning from each other.
  • Managers as advocates. You’ll report to leaders invested in your growth and promotion, not just their own. Managers only succeed when their teams thrive.
  • Outcomes over output. We value finding ways to do more with less, working smart instead of burning out.
  • Product ownership. Engineers are owners, not mercenaries. Everyone plays a role in discovering, advocating for, and implementing product ideas.
  • Technical quality. We work collaboratively with product to ensure great outcomes without sacrificing quality. Sustainable development is a first class priority.

What we can offer you:

  • Hybrid and remote work opportunities, allowing you to work in the office and from home on a schedule that works for you
  • Pet-friendly office (only in NYC, for now!)
  • Competitive equity packages, giving you a chance to feel true ownership of your work
  • Unlimited PTO so you can take the time you need to rest and recharge
  • Flexible work hours for better work/life balance
  • Generous new parent leave program for all employees to enjoy bonding time
  • Free lunches for all team members
  • Annual learning and development budget to invest in your professional growth
  • 401k so you can invest in your future
  • Gym membership reimbursement
  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • Commuter benefits for your travel to/from the office
  • Endless growth opportunity and the ability to take on new and exciting challenges



To learn more about what it’s like to work with us, check out our Glassdoor reviews. We think our track record speaks best.

January is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, age, veteran status, or any other category protected by law.

At January, we believe that diversity of outlooks, demographics, identities, and life experiences enable companies to build the best products. More diversity means more empathy with different types of people. This matters a lot for us, since so many borrowers in financial distress with whom we engage come from underrepresented backgrounds. We practice what we preach and look forward to continuing to grow and build on our already diverse team.

An Insider's view of Debtsy

How does your team reward individual success?

We have a culture of celebration. People are encouraged to share professional and personal milestones: partnering with new clients, making your first matcha latte, running a 5k. Outside the office, our #wins Slack channel often makes my day. It's awesome to know that the folks around you are supportive of who you are and what you do.

- A workflow engine for automating operational workflows with strict completion guarantees.
- Developing a high-integrity & high-performance data warehouse in Snowflake.

What's something quirky about your company?

A bunch of folks on the team are into creative activities outside of work (e.g. painting, archery, candle making, painting rocks, etc.). We have a painting and photos the team made hanging up in the office!
