What We're Looking For

Are you an energetic self-starter who wants to build something big and impactful from the ground up? Do you get excited by taking on a big challenge? Charlie is building the future of banking for the coming wave of millions of tech-comfortable retirees who deserve a bank built from the ground up for their unique needs, a bank they don’t have to get in line for, a bank that comes to them.

This role requires a deep and intuitive understanding of the tools and processes required to enable the product and engineering teams to succeed. As an early and formative member of the Charlie team, you will play a leading role in creating and maintaining an environment that fosters innovation, excellence, and speed of execution. You must be intimately familiar with the modern tools and methodologies needed to create efficiencies for highly functional product and tech teams. You will be working very closely with the Head of Engineering, Head of Product, and Head of Operations in streamlining product delivery and execution. We are an early-stage startup and we expect every member of our team to roll up their sleeves and do what is needed to deliver an amazing customer experience.

You’d be joining a highly experienced group of founders including our CEO Kevin Nazemi, who served as the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Oscar Health (NYSE: OSCR), and a company financially supported by some of the most respected FinTech Investors.
