About the Company

About Prodigal

We are a fast-growing Bay Area-based startup backed by leading investors like Accel and Y-Combinator. In the past year we grew revenue nearly 10x and recently raised a series A from a top-tier Silicon Valley venture fund. We are looking to continue to grow aggressively and are hiring stellar Junior Backend Engineers to drive our next phase of growth.

Our core product offering helps automate lending operations for financial services firms across the lending value chain. The Prodigal team has deep technical talent today and we believe there is an opportunity to build an iconic vertical software business that will fundamentally impact how the multi-trillion-dollar debt industry is managed. Debt has such a massive impact on consumers and prior to Prodigal, the industry was saddled with painful, low value manual workflows, and poor customer experience- our mission is to humanize the debt repayment process through automation and data.
