We are OppLoans
Growth with a Purpose
OppLoans is a growing FinTech company that provides accessible and simple-to-understand lending products for middle-income consumers with five-star customer service. We’re growing fast with profitable returns, and new employees can make an immediate impact.
OppLoans is a team of caring and inventive “Opptimists” with diverse perspectives and backgrounds. OppLoans employees approach every new challenge with an unparalleled ability to see what could be rather than settle for what is. We want people to be excited to come to work every morning and know they are a part of something great. That’s why we prize collaboration, collegiality, and letting the best ideas win the day. We are looking for engineers who are excited by the chance to challenge the FinTech status quo.
OppLoans is searching for next-generation tech talent to help grow the most valuable online lending company. This is an exceptional opportunity for someone energized by the prospect of joining a nimble, rapidly-growing business. If you want to roll up your sleeves and have a tremendous impact on both short and long-term growth, we want to hear from you for our Summer 2020 tech internship program.
