Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.

Our mission to deliver honest financial products that improve lives extends beyond borders. Consumers across the globe need safe, transparent financing. Our retail partners need Affirm to be there for them, wherever that might be. To help achieve this vision, we are expanding our product lines and becoming a global company. We’re just getting started, and we’re looking for a strong product leader to take on this big challenge!

This product leader will be responsible for building the foundational technology systems to support Affirm’s accounting and financial reporting processes, and innovating on the central data systems that powers Affirm’s loans. Some key priorities include building out a robust data system to provide easy access to relevant, accurate, and complete data for financial reporting, forecasting, and auditing needs, and automating accounting and cash reconciliation close processes to reduce time to close from weeks to a few days and ultimately real-time. This will require collaboration across product, engineering, accounting, and other finance functions to streamline core financial operational processes including our month-end close process, internal reporting, regulatory reporting, ad-hoc data needs, and new product data/ reporting support.

The right person will have a deep technical background in complex data systems, strong execution capabilities in a heavily matrixed environment, and a history of building strong partnerships while delivering high impact business results, preferably in the finance, banking, or accounting spaces.

  • Partner with Finance leadership (particularly accounting, strategic finance and financial systems), engineering, product managers, and other cross-functional business partners to develop and execute impactful product solutions.
  • Collaborate with product peers across Affirm on ensuring our data systems and reporting can support new product launches.
  • Maintain laser focus on MVPs, iterative product development, and releasing immediate/tangible value to stakeholders and adjust frequently.
  • Identify opportunities for operational improvements across the finance organization’s business applications and drive solution definition.
  • Identify necessary reports, metrics, and analysis to measure the effectiveness and validate the success of completed projects.

What We Look For
