Talent Developer at Enova

Title: Talent Developer
Reports to: Talent Developer Leader


As a Talent Developer, you will join our innovative Talent Development Team in their efforts to maintain a well-rounded and diverse employee engagement program. You will craft unique targeted workshops, develop solid relationships through coaching and development, as well as strategically improve on existing Enova programs.


What You'll Do Here:

  • Think Critically and Solve Problems:
    • We have an awesome catalog of workshops and development programs at Enova, but we need you to identify ways we can continuously improve and enhance our curriculum and ensure our organizational needs are being met.
    • You’ll partner and communicate closely with your manager, but our Talent Development Leader doesn’t like to hover so you’ll need to work with minimal supervision and be responsible for making a wide range of decisions independently.
  • Build Relationships:
    • People will trust and reach out to you for guidance on all kinds of things like leadership development, retention programs, assessing training needs, and employee engagement initiatives.
    • You’ll need to be strategic with your coaching of employees on critical competencies.
    • Facilitating is more than just presenting, but instead engaging with participants for powerful and influential program experiences.
  • Manage Projects:
    • We can always do more to improve what we offer at Enova. You will lead projects that develop new instructional materials for training solutions as well as manage and evaluate our ever evolving Mentor Program and Performance Management Process.
    • Not all projects will be homegrown, so you will function as a liaison with academic, professional organizations and external providers to bring the latest and greatest the industry has to offer in house.
  • Always Be Analyzing:
    • Bring an analytical approach to past, present, and future programs through needs analysis and constant evaluation of success.

What We Need From You:

  • 2-3 years of experience in organizational development or related field
  • BA; focus on Organizational Development, Human Resources, Education, Instructional Design, Organizational Behavior Management or Industrial / Organizational Psychology, or a performance-related discipline
  • Know your way around Excel; especially the ability to manipulate data using pivot tables, simple formulas, and graphs
  • Flair for creating compelling and effective communications through email campaigns, in person presentations, surveys, and printed material
  • Proven track record of driving projects from beginning to end to deliver practical business solutions
  • An eye for design of instructional curriculum, as well as all follow up materials

Stuff We Really Like, But Don't Require:

  • Master's Degree
  • Experience as an internal organizational development consultant

About Enova:

Enova is a leading provider of online financial services that leverages its advanced technology and analytics to provide access to credit for non-prime consumers and small businesses. Our roots are in Chicago, but we have served nearly 5 million customers through our six businesses in the U.S. and abroad. We pride ourselves on hiring smart and driven people who bring new and innovative ideas to the table. Our philosophy is, "Life’s short. Work some place awesome."

Many of us consider our people to be Enova’s best perk. But to sweeten the deal, we also have a pretty awesome list of conventional (and less conventional) perks and benefits including competitive salaries, health care benefits, a 401K matching plan, a revamped parental leave program (and brand new nursing rooms for our returning mothers!) summer hours, tuition reimbursement and a sabbatical program. And of course we also have the things you’d expect at a leading tech company in Chicago, such as the snacks, game room, onsite massages/barbers/nail technicians, monthly social events, and sporting sponsorships.

Our goal at Enova is to recruit, hire, develop and maintain a diverse workforce. It is our policy to provide equal employment opportunity for all persons and not discriminate in employment decisions by placing the most qualified person in each job, without regard to any other classification protected by federal, state, or local law.

Company Reviews

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. If there is a topic that intrigues you, guaranteed, there is generally an expert in that area a few steps away. There are so many confident and skilled software engineers to talk to, your growth is only limited by your motivation."

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.
