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.
