Lending Specialist

Shift has reinvented the way people buy cars from other individuals.  No more sketchy craigslist sellers, questionably maintained cars, or pushy used car dealerships; instead, we bring the car to you. Now we’re working to transform the landscape of automotive finance to better serve our growing customer base!
To help us achieve this goal, we are looking for an associate to join the Finance Operations team at the ground floor; someone to lead the charge on increasing the quality, penetration, and profitability of our financing and insurance products.

Attention to detail - lending and insurance are both heavily regulated industries. While mistakes happen, we need to be careful to avoid them, identify them quickly and solve problems in real time.
Entrepreneurship - Shift is still very new to the world of finance and insurance. We are looking for a candidate that can identify and improve problem areas of our operations.

Responsibilities Include:
- Monitor loan applications and lender decisions
- Interface with customers to collect and verify key document requirements
- Fulfilling and closing financing deals
