Job description: Stilt (YC W16) is building an online bank for those typically underserved by the existing credit bureau reporting process, customers who are new to the United States banking system, and those with “thin” or no files. We are a Y Combinator-backed company based in San Francisco, founded by an immigrant team with expertise in finance, technology, and machine learning.

Improving access to financial services for everyone, especially for the underserved and immigrants, has never been more critical. It is a challenging and fulfilling opportunity for someone looking to make a difference in customers’ lives across the world. As we rewrite the approach to banking, we are looking for an experienced python engineer who can help us build better tech infrastructure to solve this problem.
