MBA Summer Internship - Operations Strategy

CommonBond is an NYC-based student lender that helps lower the cost of your student loans. We’re innovators, creators, movers, shakers, numbers geeks, and finance freaks. We’re people just like you, who were frustrated by high rates and poor service that cost extra money and caused extra stress. We knew there had to be a better way. So we created one.

We are looking for the brightest MBAs to join us for the summer to work on key initiatives that will help move our business forward.  Specifically, we are looking for interns for each of the following teams: Marketing, Business Development, Operations, and Risk – see below for more information on each team.  As a company founded by MBAs and built on innovation, we will empower you to own a project from start to finish and inform key business decisions.  You will have resources to execute that include peer mentors and coaches from your functional area and direct access to our CEO and executives for direction and advice.

The Operations Team has three core responsibilities: delivering a best in class application experience and repayment experience to our members; underwriting each application in accordance with credit policy; and managing the quality of the loan documentation and data that is produced in the application, funding, and servicing processes.  The team works across the organization (marketing, product, risk, compliance, finance) to deliver on its goals.  Your project, which will be given to you at the beginning of the summer, could include analyzing our conversion data to inform the most effective outbound conversion tactics or analyzing our underwriting data to inform optimal application prioritization to optimize cycle time and designing workflows to make use of these insights.

Why are we doing this?

We believe you are the future of business – we want you to come innovate with us.

What we're looking for:

  • You are not afraid to do things differently
  • You love to think big and solve problems others are intimidated by
  • You have a roll-up-your-sleeves mentality – you are excited to get your hands dirty to get stuff done
  • You can think creatively as well as analytically
  • You are nimble, can handle changing tasks and priorities, and adapt quickly
