COME 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.
I worked at SoFi full-time (More than a year)
Amazing comp and benefits. Company in transition with lots of opportunity to make an impact. Talented coworkers and leadership, especially in HR and Ops. Great CEO with incredible vision for the company.
Not many. Just a need to improve on communication and execution on the ops side of the house.
Advice to Management
Keep being awesome and keep improving.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SoFi in September 2014.
I was referred by a current employee, which meant I got an immediate on-site, so I can't speak to the phone screen. The interview itself was an informal lunch, more related to culture fit than technical questions. They did do some high-level probing to make sure I could actually program, and if you don't have real development experience, you'll probably have trouble.
After the interview, they took a while to make an offer, although I hear that's improved as they streamline the recruitment process. After the offer, I had to undergo a background check with HireRight, which I think was a waste of everyone's time.
I tried to ask for a slightly bigger salary, but because my experience made my hiring questionable to begin with, they didn't budge.
