Oportun – Why Work For Us?


Oportun is a financial technology company founded in 2005 with the mission of providing credit-establishing, affordable loans to the approximately 45 million Latinos and others with little or no credit history so they can establish credit scores and build a better future.

 

Oportun uses advanced data analytics and technology to “score” and lend money to individuals with limited credit history – people other lenders consider “unscorable.”  We offer bilingual (English/Spanish) servicing and documentation via telephone, web, mobile, or in-person in over 200 locations in Arizona, California, Illinois, Nevada, Texas, and Utah.

 

Oportun is a great place to work if you are as enthusiastic about helping others as you are about your own professional development and career. We commit to our employees that they will do meaningful work in an environment that attracts and retains talent, enables professional growth and achievement, and leads to the realization of personal potential. At Oportun, everything we do reflects our corporate values of Service, Care, Innovation, Courage, Excellence, and Empowerment.

Working at Oportun offers you a chance to be part of a fast growing company. The market opportunity for Oportun is large and growing, with an estimated 25 million Hispanics in the U.S. who are underserved by mainstream financial institutions, mainly due to a lack of established credit history and relevant products. We strongly believe in building a great business while also achieving social good, and seek to hire people who share our values.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oportun (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was very smooth and all the interviewers, starting with the recruiter, made everything so fascinating. Plus they were very open and cristal clear about the company and the expectation.
