Jellysmack is the global creator company that uses AI fueled technology to detect and develop the world’s most talented video creators on social media. We’re an optimistic crew who naturally goes the extra mile, has a glass-half-full mindset, and sees challenges as opportunities. We look for positive people who think outside the box, are inventive, bold, lead change, and believe that teamwork matters.

We are looking for a VP of Credit Risk who will play a key role in taking our creator financing business to the next level. Jellysmack is a one-of-kind business that helps the top creators in the world to grow their revenue and reach from a single platform (like youtube) to all platforms (like facebook, snap, tik tok, instagram, and more). We have already generated hundreds of millions of dollars in new revenue streams for creators and are seeking to use our financial backing to help them go even bigger.

The creator finance team’s mission is to deploy capital into our creators’ businesses to accelerate production, fund new projects, hire teams, or anything else to help them “Go Bigger”.

They will use our treasure trove of historical data on creator performance to accurately value and lend against the future cash flows of a creator's video assets across platforms. They will work closely with the product team to build unique capital products that are creator-friendly and partnership oriented. They will track the value of creator assets over time, optimizing the models for risk taking, and looking for unique pockets of value which traditional lenders overlook. This person will be a key member of the Creator Finance leadership team, with the responsibility to effectively balance opportunity and risk while creating value for investors, creators, and the business in harmony.
