The ideal candidate will have prior experience in process automation and optimization as well as development and implementation of quantitative and/or machine learning models. Given the cross-functional nature of the role, the ideal candidate should have strong interpersonal and communication skills.

  • Advance Affirm’s asset-liability management model to help inform optimal funding strategies and forecast out the economics of our business
  • Build data-driven models to analyze and predict the performance of Affirm’s consumer loans
  • Partner cross-functionally with our Capital Markets, Treasury, Risk, Commercial, Product and Engineering teams to evaluate funding, product, and business decisions

What We Look For

  • Strong data-manipulation and model development and implementation skills using Python
  • Desire to understand the broader context of business decisions
