About Selina Finance

At Selina Finance, our mission is to give people access to the wealth they have in their homes, and we’re doing that by building a next-generation digital lender – starting with a home equity loan product. More than £2tn equity value is locked up in UK homes, while homeowners still need to rely on high-interest rate consumer loans, credit cards or overdrafts. We believe this is unfair and unnecessary. We offer a financing product unlike anything else out there, one that is as flexible as a current account, as affordable as a mortgage, and as easy to apply for as a consumer loan. If you want to build up an innovative FinTech with us, join our team!

What you’ll do:

  • Get involved in the early stages to help us shape the vision and the tech stack for our future data science products
  • Apply machine learning techniques to large, complex datasets to better understand our customers and markets and drive innovation
  • Develop risk, AVMs, pricing, credit scoring and decisioning models to aid the automation of our underwriting processes
  • Provide expertise on mathematical and statistical concepts and inspire the adoption of advanced analytics and data science across the entire breadth of our organisation
  • Support the development of analytic algorithms into production systems, writing production quality code and testing the production systems where applicable
  • Design, develop and maintain data science solutions for the business, which will be used internally and by our customers and partners.
  • Work closely with the Founders, Product, Growth and Operations Teams to develop and roll out new products when relevant, while keeping scalability and user experience front and centre
