Software Engineer

Climb, New York

Finance your education today Applying does not affect your credit.


We are looking for promising software engineers who are excited about joining a fast-growing startup on the ground floor in an entry-level role. The ideal candidate will have strong computer science fundamentals and be ready to learn more in order to build a scalable, reliable product that delivers real value to customers.

Who we are:

At Climb, we’re building a new type of student lending company: one that we would want to use and one that always finances an education benefiting the student.

We started Climb, because the status quo for funding traditional higher education doesn't work. Students graduate deeply in debt, never earning enough to payback their loans. Climb is different. We work with leading schools and educational platforms around the country, scouring the nation to find the best sources of high ROI education - education that not only works, but is affordable. Our technology solution enables students to afford modern, transformative education delivered in an efficient and sustainable fashion. We’ve raised over $400MM of lending capital, and are currently 24 passionate technologists and business people excited to be changing the face of modern education.
