I have been working at Oportun full-time
There are two things that stand out to me when reviewing Oportun as a company. First is the impact and scope. The company is growing and there's constant need for more optimization and new initiatives so you will touch many functions outside of your role as well as dive an inch wide and a mile deep in your specific role. In sum, there's always interesting projects to work on and expand your skill sets.
The second is the quality of the leadership team. The organizational culture they've created is innately flat so there's the ability to chat on a weekly basis with the C-suite execs even as a junior person. Moreover, there's an innate focus on caring and supporting people at all levels.
The location of the office isn't optimal but it's a fair center point for both SF and SJ people.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oportun (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2016.
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.
