WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD?

There are 44 million Americans burdened by student debt. The vast majority of them are enrolled in the wrong repayment plan, causing them to overpay by thousands of dollars and default on payments.

Summer’s vision is to save these borrowers time and money by building an innovative platform to help navigate the complex student loan market. We're passionate about building smart tools from the ground up to provide customized repayment recommendations for all borrowers. Join us to help fix the system.

OUR TEAM

Summer combines policy expertise and innovative technology to serve student loan borrowers across the country. Our founding team draws on years of experience in public policy, law, consumer finance, and engineering to tackle one of the greatest challenges of our generation. We’ve registered as a public benefit corporation (PBC) as part of our commitment to helping all borrowers improve their financial health through smart repayment strategies. We're backed by a team of world-class investors, including General Catalyst, NextView, Greycroft, Foundation Capital and Story Ventures—and our first partner is Yale University.

YOUR ROLE

We could spend paragraphs talking about coding requirements, algorithms and data structures, but you know that already. There are plenty of companies in NYC where you can program all day every day—this is more than just Jira tickets and GitHub code reviews. Come take ownership as you deliver something that people truly need.

As a senior engineer, you'll have influence in every aspect of the company—not just the code base but also in the product and the company culture.

(You don't have to know anything about student loans—we've got that covered!)

Sound interesting? If you're a team player who thrives when collaborating to solve tough problems, you'll be a great fit.

OUR VALUES

Our greatest asset is the set of values our team strives to embody every day in our office (located next to Grand Central): empathy, diversity, growth, determination, humility, and fun. Read more about what these mean to us at https://www.meetsummer.org/careers.

PERKS AND BENEFITS

In addition to a fun and inclusive work environment, we offer the following benefits:

- Significant equity allocations
- Healthcare coverage
- Generous vacation, medical, and family leave policies

EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY

At Summer, diversity is one of our core values. As an equal opportunity employer, our hiring practices reflect that. Women, minorities, veterans, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply. Our policy reflects and affirms the company’s commitment to the principles of fair employment and the elimination of discriminatory practices.

We look forward to hearing from you!
