Business Development Representative
CommonBond is a financial technology company on a mission to give students and graduates more affordable, transparent, and simple ways to pay for higher education. We’re people just like you who were frustrated by the high rates, confusing process, and poor service that came with our student loans. We knew there had to be a better way. So we created one. Over 40 million Americans are affected by student loan debt – and we’re helping them meet that challenge head on. We're tackling the student debt crisis by offering new loans to current students, refinance loans to college graduates, and a suite of student loan repayment benefits to employees through our CommonBond for Business program. By designing a better experience that combines advanced technology with competitive rates and award-winning customer service, we've funded over $3 billion in loans for tens of thousands of members, and helped over 300 companies give their employees the tools they need to achieve financial wellness. Finally, we're proud to be the first and only finance company with a "one-for-one" social mission: for every loan we fund, we also fund the education of a child in need, through our partnership with Pencils of Promise. Want more good news? We’re hiring! So join our team, and join the movement, as we continue to build a better future for student debt in America.
CommonBond is building the leading values-driven, customer-centric financial services company and is looking for people who want to help our company grow.
