Diversity at Green Dot

Green Dot strives to promote diversity through its recruiting efforts every day. When employees look up, look left and look right, they see themselves and hope springs.  This kind of hope fuels committment,  determination and innovation. Inclusiveness at Green Dot is not just a buzzword. It’s in our DNA.

It’s exciting to see the company continue to grow as we expand our products and platform. I work with a great group of people who also see terrific potential within the organization.” 

-Charles Carbajo, Corporate Recruiter

When confronted with a difficult task, we rise to the occasion without a fuss. There is always something new to learn as we regularly leverage new tools and new technologies. I look forward to many more years at Green Dot. "

I am frequently exposed to new industry strategies and developments, and taught how to provide financial services to a variety of consumers. I love being able to effectively collaborate with smart and driven individuals in a teamwork driven environment."

    QA Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Green Dot (Pasadena, CA).


    It started with a phone screening. The manager was calm and had a mix of technical approach and behavioral questions. After I was selected, there was a call for onsite interview (3 rounds).

    The entire panel was changed on the interview day as engineers were busy due to some release process.

    The entire process took a month and was quite fast paced.
