What’s the vibe like in the office?

Enova has a fun, but hardworking vibe. Throughout my time here, even while everyone is hard at work, we are all still enjoying what we do and who we get to do it with.

What projects are you most excited about?

My job requires me to think about my work from many different angles, and often make decisions when there is no obvious 'right' answer. I really enjoy the opportunity of tackling new challenges and mastering different decision-making frameworks.

How does the company support your career growth?

Enova supported my career/growth with training when I started. In baseline, the training program for new software engineers, we were given the time to learn before joining a team. It was great to have dedicated time just focused on learning and getting acclimated to Enova before jumping into project work.
