At Debtsy, 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 Owing to outdated processes and bad actors, traditional debt collection is rife with harassment and fraud.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 Debtsy 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.

At Debtsy, 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.
