Data Engineering Manager

Clutch, backed by Andreessen Horowitz, is a leading vertical SAAS company dedicated to revolutionizing lending practices for credit unions, thereby enhancing the financial well-being of consumers across the United States. With the average American burdened by over $155,000 in household debt, we recognize the importance of offering alternatives to high-interest loans commonly issued by fintech lenders and for-profit banks. Unlike these institutions, credit unions operate as non-profit lenders, providing cost-effective loan solutions.

At Clutch, we specialize in developing cutting-edge software that empowers credit unions to adopt fintech-like capabilities, enabling them to responsibly serve over 130 million Americans. Our exponential growth journey has catapulted us from a small customer base to a diverse portfolio of medium to large enterprise clients. Driven by ambition, our team is deeply passionate about reshaping the landscape of lending and account-opening processes through credit unions.

  • Championing engineering excellence and facilitating architecture/design discussions.
  • Participating in our incident escalation process, helping us bring incidents to a conclusion, calmly, and without blame.
