    A new milestone: we've surpassed $25b in loan originations! Thank you to our community of over 390,000 people for growing with us.

  • The fires have significantly impacted our SoFi family- with 11 homes completely lost and more employees displaced through the various evacuations. However, we are happy to report that every single employee from Healdsburg is safe and accounted for, and the office remains open for business.

    Thanks again for everyone’s support and generosity to date – this situation is unfortunately far from over, but we have made strides to ensure that our impacted employees are getting the resources and assistance they need. SoFi leadership has also generously agreed to match all funds raised by this campaign.

    SoFi Team, Many of you have reached out and asked how we can help our fellow employees in Healdsburg, particularly those who have lost homes in the fires. We have set up a GoFundMe campaign to help raise funds for those who would like to make a contribution to help those employees.

undefinedCOME GROW WITH US

By joining SoFi, you're joining a new kind of finance company based around speed, transparency, and alignment with our members’ interests. Our goal is to be the center of our members’ financial lives. We created student loan refinancing, addressing the biggest financial challenge this new generation has through a new approach to lending. We expanded into other types of loans, and then into insurance and wealth management with similarly inventive products. As the company has grown, we’ve been able to help more people with these tools.

SoFi has achieved significant growth, with big plans ahead. In just the last year, we've more than doubled our member base (300,000 strong), doubled loan volume ($8 billion in 2016), and grown our team from under 200 people to more than 1,000. We're preparing to go global, with expansion to Australia and Canada planned this year. And we're well capitalized to power all this growth, having raised $1.9 billion in equity backing. But we'll only be able to continue this growth with great talent, and that includes you.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I applied for the role a few weeks back and heard from an internal recruiter a few days ago. She said they would like to schedule a first round with me and asked what my availability was. I provided it and waited for a response for several days before I got an automated email saying that my application was passed. Very unprofessional experience.
