About Jason

I'm the CEO of Octane Lending. Octane Lending is an online marketplace that connects boat, RV, and motorcycle dealers with lenders. My co-founder (Stanford 2012) and I (Yale 2012) both worked together and internal consultants in Capital One's Corporate Strategy Group where we discovered that the process for applying for these loans is extremely inefficient (applying through several different websites, damaging your credit). We were part of DreamIt Ventures 2014 and launched our platform that solves pain points for dealers applying for these loans and moved over $3.5M in loans in our beta. We are wrapping up our seed round of $750K this month (June 2014, $5M post money valuation) and are looking for someone to join our team as our CTO (must know python and should be familiar with Django). The ideal candidate would be full-stack.
