Staff Software Engineer - Consumer

The $21B Powersports market (motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, PWCs, snowmobiles) is all about fast and fun, but the purchasing process is slow and frustrating. Octane enables consumers to live their passion by making powersports purchases instant, seamless, and widely available. Octane launched a credit product, branded as Roadrunner Financial, in 2016 to provide financing to prime and near-prime consumers who have historically been underserved by incumbent banks, expanding coverage to 50% of responsible consumers. Together with our automated underwriting and digital buying experience, Octane and Roadrunner cut the time to close a transaction from hours to minutes.
