NIRA is a new fintech venture, on a mission for financial inclusion. Our vision is a world where everyone can get access to credit in a manner that is fast, frictionless and fair. This statement of intent guides all our decisions and strategy. We are planning to launch in Q1 2018.

Currently, only 10% of Indians can use banks when they need credit: banks typically require a high credit score or collateral, something most people don't have. It need not be this way. Using a combination of traditional data and the vast amount of digital data available, it is now possible to score the unscored. We want to reimagine the way loans are underwritten and bring access to credit to millions of underbanked in India. We can economically empower them to have greater control of their lives and provide downside protection in difficult times.

We are addressing head-on a big challenge. It's also a great opportunity from both a commercial and societal impact perspective. We can improve lives for millions. It is no exaggeration to say that our addressable market will be 400mm within 5 years. It's pretty exciting we think.

If our mission resonates with you, and you are a talented and hardworking individual that wants to commit yourself to an incredible yet surmountable challenge, then we want to hear from you.

You'll work closely with the founders and share the responsibility to ensure the alignment of the technology strategy with the long term goals of the business. Within a small team of engineers, you'll facilitate the in house migration of product from software development partners, while managing business continuity during the launch phase.
