Zingo enables individuals to increase and maintain their credit score for free through the submission ofnon-traditional payment histories and reoccurring payment streams to the major credit bureaus. By simply signing-up on our Zingo™ website, consumers are now able to rapidly demonstrate their credit-worthiness to banks, credit unions, insurance companies, future employers, and/or any entity that uses credit reports and credit scores to make internal decisions.
Currently, non-traditional reoccurring payments and histories – such as monthly rent, utilities, health insurance, membership dues, and cell phone bills – do not appear on credit reports (or in credit scores) for the clear majority of individuals; and, thus have no impact upon their overall credit profile. Through established relationships with the largest credit bureaus in the nation, our company can apply these non-traditional serial payments and histories to individual credit profiles. This, in turn, rapidly increases their credit score.
We take on hard engineering problems around scalability, security and financial safety to help our customers improve and maintain a higher credit profile. This is where you come in - you’ll work closely with product, customer success, and design teams to build features that our customers want.
