This is a remote position. About Esusu Esusu Financial is the leading financial technology company building solutions to financial access and inclusion. Our flagship Esusu Rent product enables renters to build credit by making on-time rental payments while helping landlords improve property performance. Esusu was founded in 2016 by Abbey Wemimo and Samir Goel as a result of their personal experiences with financial marginalization in the United States. To-date Esusu has raised ~$4m in capital with top-tier impact and venture investors including Acumen Fund, Concrete Rose Capital, The Global Good Fund, Impact America Fund, Kleiner Perkins, Next Play Ventures, Sinai Ventures, Zeal Capital Partners and others. Esusu’s mission is to dismantle barriers to housing for working families. The firm’s vision is to use data to eliminate the racial wealth gap. Product Detail Esusu is the leading financial technology firm capturing rental payment data and reporting it into the credit bureaus. Historically rental payments have not been incorporated in consumer credit scores leading to a fundamental disparity between home-owners and renters. Access to credit (or lack thereof) also plays a significant role in many of the structural inequalities we see in society today including the racial wealth gap. However with legislative changes and a shift in strategy from the credit bureaus, this rental payment data is now accepted into credit bureaus. Esusu has built the market-leading platform to capture, transform, and report this data into the credit bureaus at scale by partnering with large multifamily owners/operators. Concurrently we provide tenants with a mobile application to view their credit score, check their rental history, and connect with additional service providers. The ability for consumers to build credit from rental payments is an important one, enabling the 45 million+ thin or no credit file consumers to have a pathway into the financial system. This can enable an individual to save $200,000 in lifetime interest payments, qualify for mortgage loans, and pass job screening requirements. The transformational impact of this cannot be understated.
