Job Description

About us

At Prodigal, we're building the future of debt collections. Loan servicing in the US has remained largely unchanged for decades.  We are modernizing the entire stack so lenders deliver an experience consumers love at much lower cost. Our cloud native platform provides a new form of Collection Intelligence which enables faster and more effective recovery. We process and analyze millions of borrower interactions using our custom state-of-the-art natural language engine to provide actionable insights to our customers.

We are young and fast-moving company based in the Silicon Valley and are backed by Y-Combinator (same investor as Airbnb, Doordash and Stripe) and Accel (same investor as Facebook). We are always looking for folks who are curious, collaborative and are mission-driven to help us build the future of debt collections.
