We got here likely the same way you found us, by being sick and tired of staring at monstrous credit card statements that read, "You've got 22 years and 11 months of minimum payments to reach a zero balance". We all know the banks aren't really going to change so we decided to change things ourselves.
That's when we became Mogo. A group of people in Vancouver, Canada, who know there's a better way to make your money work for you, rather than someone else. We're going to blow the doors off ridiculous service fees, interest payments and massive credit card debt until the banks start to listen or we're the biggest financial company out there. It's safe to say you might as well get in on the ground floor because we're going to grow pretty damn fast.
We are building a lending platform and technology driven company that is looking to leverage technology and data analysis to offer a truly differentiated and next generation consumer finance company.
We're looking for a Risk & Collections Analyst to help manage our credit risk adjudication & collections strategies in a way that drives customer solutions, optimizes profit and ensures Mogo's competitive advantage. This role requires exceptional leadership skills, a results-focused attitude and the ability to effectively communicate risks and opportunities to the senior leadership team in areas like portfolio trends, collections forecasts and credit risk adjudication models. If you're tired of working for big banks and want to be a part of something different, check out the responsibilities and qualifications below. If you're a fit for our team -- let's talk.
