  • Identify and help resolve project blockers
  • Continuously identify and implement improvements to the integrations process

Why you are a fit for Amount:

  • 2+ years of project management experience

  • Experience in a customer success organization at a B2B company preferred
  • Proven organizational ability to plan and execute on multiple projects from end to end
  • Prior usage of project management tools (e.g., JIRA)
  • Understanding of agile software development life cycle methodology is a plus
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Experience in a fast-paced start-up environment; comfortable wearing many hats
  • Strong collaborator and willingness to go above and beyond

We value, support, and help each other grow

We are committed to active inclusion and diversity

We are transparent and believe the best idea wins

We succeed when our customers succeed

We get sh!t done… responsibly

And we keep it fun!

We believe that ideas are more important than titles, everything is more fun together, everyone drives change, and everyone is an owner. While we believe the perks and benefits that we offer are terrific, nothing excites us more than having the ability to collaborate with intelligent, highly-motivated and talented people on challenging problems as we work to change the face of online lending.

An Insider's view of Avant

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The diversity of characteristics that make up our team is what makes Avant great. We proactively explore ways to play to the strengths and uniqueness of our culture and stay connected whether Avantees are in person or remote. We are working hard to preserve the key elements of our culture — which are centered around relationships — as we scale.

What does your typical day look like?

It starts with reviewing my project prioritization list to determine whether anything should be modified (Legal follows the agile methodology for project management). Then I usually spend my day meeting with business and risk partners where I act as a strategic legal partner. From there, I take the necessary action to address and clear my list.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As soon as I started, it was clear that I had the ability to make a difference at the company. My feedback was taken seriously and resulted in multiple different operational changes even though I was in an entry level position. I’ve now been with Avant for more than 9.5 years, and in that time I’ve held more than seven different roles.

What is your vision for the company?

Put simply, our focus is on moving financial lives forward. We do this by offering credit products designed to be within reach for the millions of Americans with non-prime credit. These individuals have historically been underserved and don’t have a lot of options, but we want to change that.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Avant has a deeply ingrained culture of understanding and empathy towards parents. We all wear multiple hats, and Avant respects that being a parent is one of the most critical roles we can play. From flexible hours to managers encouraging parents to attend their child’s school events, Avantees are encouraged to prioritize their duties as parents.
