A bit about us:
Our focus is to provide loan products to customers with limited access to credit from traditional lenders. We seek to provide attractive, easy-to-understand loan products that fit within our customers’ budgets. Our one-on-one service from dedicated local employees ensures our customers get the right personal loan for their needs.
Why join us?
We offer a variety of incredible benefits, including but not limited to a comprehensive medical, dental, and vision plan, 401(k) plans with matching company contributions, PTO and paid holidays, paid parental leave and an employee assistance program for mental health and counseling.
We are technology agnostic and are primarily looking for strong programmers. While we currently work in a mostly Microsoft tech stack (.Net), we are expanding our use of open source and are currently developing digital assets using python and django. In addition, we are building out an automated CI/CD pipeline to improve our abilities to automated testing and ship code to production more efficiently. Last but not least, you are excited about system design as we are in the process of refactoring our code to move to a service based architecture.
