We’re recruiting for two highly qualified Vice Presidents for a fintech in the South East -- a VP Business Development (Hunter) and a VP Partner Success – Relationship Manager (analyzing and optimizing all marketing channels and lead aggregators).  The company is a fintech that grants loans to consumers via a Direct-to-Consumer online lending platform.  This early-stage company has won numerous awards and significant investments and is growing fast.  The roles are remote. 

The VP Business Development is a classic hunter, searching for places where large numbers of consumers can be reached with offers for loans. 

The VP Business Development will target traditional lead generators, such as: Credit Karma; Intuit; LendingTree; Even Financial; NerdWallet; Wallet Hub; Credit Sesame; Credible; Quinstreet; Monevo; Experian; Transunion; Crowdnection; Rocket Loans. 

The VP Business Development will target other places with large membership or numbers of consumers:  AARP; AAA; Professional Associations such as AARN; Special Interest Clubs; Trade Unions; Marketplaces.

The VP Business Development will target lenders and financial institutions that are unlikely to grant loans to those with lower credit ratings:  Credit Unions, Banks, maybe Captive Finance companies.

This is an early-stage company that is heading for a payout – likely an IPO.  We are looking for people willing to throw themselves into building the company and increasing the value for whatever comes next.

A primary focus for this role will be to target and secure new partnerships with companies within the verticals outlined.   This is a challenging role that requires hard work, strong analytical and communication skills and the ability to get in the weeds and execute.    It's a pure acquisition role and can be unlimited income potential with the right amount of focus, hard work and determination.
