Software Engineering Overview:

The Software Engineering Team, one of the largest groups in the company, is responsible and accountable for meeting the demand of both technical and business advancements. We help create the “Tech” in FinTech.

We are structured into small full-stack teams, each aligned to specific core initiatives or products. Our primary application stack includes Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, and Go. We use Ember and other JS frameworks for front-end development. The teams are responsible for defining and delivering solutions through constant iterative development. 

Although we are divided into unique teams, our culture of collaboration promotes and encourages engagement across every team and department within the company - no team is a silo. This enables us to align our core values and create strong, best practices.

The structured LevelUp curriculum — which is a month of programming assignments in different languages and a curated list of required reading — is one of the unique ways that Enova invests in making you a better programmer. Your assignments are evaluated by an instructor, as well as your peers, which facilitates improving and growing your skillset.

Enova has amazing perks like free food, comfortable dress and summer hours, but the most notable benefit is the deep investment in learning and skill-building. Software new hires go through a 10-week, self-paced training program, which culminates in a full Ruby on Rails app of your design. After training, project team members help you take on responsibility and quickly get success under your belt. Opportunities to make changes abound at Enova, where the only limit to your impact is the need for sleep.
