Xendit provides payment infrastructure across Southeast Asia, with a focus on Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia. We process payments, power marketplaces, disburse payroll and loans, provide KYC solutions, prevent fraud, and help businesses grow exponentially. We serve our customers by providing a suite of world-class APIs, eCommerce platform integrations, and easy to use applications for individual entrepreneurs, SMEs, and enterprises alike.

Our main focus is building the most advanced payment rails for Southeast Asia, with a clear goal in mind — to make payments across and within SEA simple, secure and easy for everyone. We serve thousands of businesses ranging from SMEs to multinational enterprises, and process millions of transactions monthly. We’ve been growing rapidly since our inception in 2015, onboarding hundreds of new customers every month, and backed by global top-10 VCs. We’re proud to be featured on among the fastest growing companies by Y-Combinator.

The Role

GMF is Xendit’s very own financing arm under Multifinance license from OJK. We provide financing to help customers to help reduce daily crunch and thus improve the cash flow overall. Many of our customers are startups and small businesses that find it difficult to get funding from banks and other traditional lenders. Easy access to capital gives our customers the fuel that they need to grow - and when our customers, their transactions grow, and we grow too.

Of course, growing fast is a thing, but safety and security is something we cannot leave aside, hence we need strong talent to help out with our credit analysis and risk management, this role will mainly focus on:

  • Analyzing and assessing the creditworthiness of new and existing clients
  • Designing and driving implementation of credit strategies, policies, standard operating procedures and guidelines
  • Helping to build, test, develop, validate and monitor comprehensive credit scoring models used to support credit decisions
  • Ensure adherence to the laid down policies and procedures for the smooth running of the division
  • Giving feedback and recommendation about current procedural and policy whether implementable or having the gaps
