Elevate Credit – Why Work With Us?


Elevate focuses on developing products that get people money today and guide them to be better with it tomorrow. Driven by a passion for aiding the New Middle Class, we have developed a technology and analytics platform that powers several new, innovative credit products. We're delivering new levels of access, convenience, and value to those who need it most.

Elevate is proud to be leading the way for the industry. Working with consumer advocates and thought leaders, we've inspired tenets of the Center for Financial Services Innovation's "Compass Principles." And we're just getting started...

The business is serious.  The office isn’t.

High Energy & Collaboration – The conference rooms are almost always full (since we work so collaboratively).  In addition, all of the offices and conference rooms have white boards to facilitate group brainstorming.

Career Growth - Opportunities for career advancement abound.  Team members are encouraged to design their personal development plans and meet with their leader to put in motion.

Very Casual– We don’t have a dress code so be ready to see people in shorts, suits, or jeans – we want you to be comfortable.

Challenge & Change – At Elevate, our employees take smart ideas and make them a reality with one goal in mind – providing our customers with financial relief today while helping to build a brighter financial future.  Our employees have innovative minds that make a difference in the lives of our customers.

No Big Offices – We don’t have any fancy executive suites – it’s about the work, not the perk.

Fun – The best way to keep up energy and passion is by enjoying the team you work with.  We work hard, but we also play hard – this includes a Summer Event for all employees and their families, birthday celebrations, kickball tournaments, and much more.


Opportunity knocks.  And offers free breakfast.

 

At Elevate, we provide competitive salaries and a broad array of comprehensive benefits that include:

  • Medical, Dental and Vision
  • Life Insurance
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Employee Assistance Programs
  • Tuition Assistance
  • Matching 401(k) plan
  • Employee Stock Purchase plan
  • Generous Paid Time Off plan. 

Elevate is a fun place to come to work every day, and it’s a company that encourages career advancement through twice yearly reviews, personal development plans, and coaching.

We want every employee’s professional life at Elevate to be challenging and rewarding, but we also encourage healthy habits.  We even provide physical fitness facilities in our offices and sponsor a number of fun and healthy activities, such as free breakfasts, subsidized lunches our annual Biggest Loser contest, a free bike voucher, and biking/running events.


Commitment to our Values

Think Big – We have always been the innovator in our industry.  Ideas, both big and small, are our competitive advantage.  All of us share a responsibility to think outside the box, challenge the status quo, and embrace change.

Do The Right Thing – Doing the right thing is not optional (even when no one is watching).  We hold each other to the highest standards and earn our reputation every day.

Raise the Bar – Excellence isn’t a skill, it’s a habit – the gradual result of always striving to do better.  As a company and as individuals we push ourselves to build on success, learn from failure, and get better every day.

Win Together – Our goals are too big to achieve as individuals.  Collaboration isn’t a byproduct of our work, it is our primary focus.  It’s also more fun.

 

Are you one of us? 

Innovators - At Elevate, our teams take risks, embrace change, and adapt to new opportunities.  We are a company of innovators.

Collaborators – We are a company of teams, and we constantly work across functional and product areas.  Even more than that, we are teams of people who care deeply for everyone else’s success in the company and are ready and willing to jump in to help out, even if the issue at hand isn’t one that we’re directly accountable for.

Achievers – Admittedly, we have high standards.  We constantly raise the bar as we deliver better products and lower rates for our customers, which means we are always challenging ourselves.

DFW or Dallas/Fort Worth is the official title of the metropolitan area that spans 13 counties within Texas. Also referred to as the Metroplex, DFW is the economic and cultural hub of North Texas.

Elevate is proud to call Fort Worth home to our headquarters and we also have an office in Addison, which is a suburb of Dallas. Having two main office locations within DFW provides flexibility for our employees and promotes a positive work/life balance.

While we call Texas home, we also have an office in San Diego, where our data and analytics team is located. Who wouldn’t love an office with an ocean view?+

    I have been working at Elevate Credit full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The leadership and management teams are second to none now. They truly care about our mission, the customers, and employees. People tend to show who they truly are in crisis and times of stress, and Covid has proven to me again how great these people are. How we are treated as employees, how transparent leadership is, how often management says thank you and expresses appreciation for our hard work and efforts, how often we are asked for our input and ideas, all are reasons I won't be voluntarily leaving this company any time soon!

    Cons

    Fast paced doesn't sum it up - it's really chaotic sometimes as they are willing and flexible enough to change on a dime. That's a large part of why they've been so successful though. If you are comfortable with change and being flexible, or thrive in fast paced or "controlled chaos" you'll love it here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up all the positive changes. New CEO - you are doing a great job! Continue to focus on the mission and holding the frequent Town Halls/Huddles.
