About the role

At Nova Credit, we’re on a mission to make financial access easier, no matter where you’re from or where you go. We’ve built a platform that enables lenders to access a single, predictive cross-border credit database to help underwrite immigrants and other global citizens.  In effect, we are the first global infrastructure for financial identity to seamlessly move around the world. We’re passionate about financial inclusion, and committed to building a diverse and fulfilling work culture.

The Credit Passport Supply team is a full-stack team focused on working cross-functionally with our international credit data partners to advance and grow our global pipeline for credit history. You will have support, resources, and space to learn new skills on the job as well as have a direct impact on the core of Nova Credit's business -- supporting the dreams of newcomers around the world by helping them access financial services they are typically denied.

For a more in-depth look of our engineering culture, check out our page on Key Values.

We're remote friendly within the continental US and we will continue to be after the pandemic. Our only ask is for you to join us in-person for two company-wide offsites each year. Our US compensation will be tied to pay ranges of high-cost areas such as SF and NY, regardless of where employees live. 


  • Work collaboratively with Product, Data, and other engineering teams
  • Design, extend, improve, and manage the complexity of our global financial data system (APIs, services, integrations)
  • Deliver high quality solutions and features with speed and end-to-end ownership of your projects
  • Improve and scale engineering processes, tools, and standards


  • Mission-driven and passion to make a social impact
  • Excitement over thinking creatively and analytically to solve ambiguous problems and unforeseen challenges
  • Enjoy thinking about systems and writing high quality code
  • Strong collaboration skills with both internal and external stakeholders to discover requirements and deliver a solution
  • Have built and improved 3rd-party API integrations and internal/external APIs in the past
  • 5+ years of relevant experience, including experience at a high growth or early-stage startup 
  • Experience with core parts of our stack (Node.JS, Express, React, ES6, Typescript, Postgres, Terraform, AWS) (Preferred, but not required)
  • Experience at a fintech startup (Preferred, but not required)


  • Build new APIs, or iterate on our existing Credit Passport API
  • Launch an integration with a new credit bureau
  • Build new tools for our customer success or data teams


  • Step 1: The phone screen gives us a chance to learn more about you, your goals, and your interests. It’s also a chance for you to learn about us and get answers to your questions. 
  • Step 2: The technical assessment (a one-hour coding challenge) is intended to give you a taste of what you’ll be doing at Nova Credit. We avoid asking algorithmic questions, so you can expect to be asked to complete more practical tasks, such as working with an existing API, parsing JSON responses, or building a UI component.
  • Step 3: The virtual on-site will give you the opportunity to meet additional engineers, have a conversation with your potential manager, and expose you to the Nova Credit culture. It is broken down into three one-hour technical sessions (coding challenges/systems design sessions) and a forty-five minute chat with the hiring manager.

Everyone is welcome at Nova Credit. We are an equal opportunity employer where our diversity and inclusion are central pillars to our company strategy. We look for applicants who understand, embrace and thrive in a multicultural and increasingly globalized world. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Why you should join Nova Credit

We're connecting credit reporting agencies across the world into a single, predictive cross-border credit database. We make this information available through a standardized and modern API to unlock financial services, housing and employment for immigrants around the world. In effect, we are creating the first and only global infrastructure for financial identity to move across the world.
