 Chandi Gracey says, “SoFi is the right employer for me because of the opportunity to grow and build and really have an impact on people's lives.” 

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.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Helena, MT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SoFi (Helena, MT) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted via LinkedIn by a recruiting manager at the main office in San Francisco, checking for interest in working at the local Helena branch. I sent in a resume and she set up a phone interview with the local management. Questions were typical for the industry: "What languages/tools do you know?" "What kinds of project have you worked on?"

    After the initial phone interview, I was called in for a face-to-face interview at the office. We met in a conference room with myself, the two local directors of engineering, and a recent engineering hire. Very casual and comfortable. Most of the meeting seemed like spitballing and "getting to know you" stuff, with a few pop-quiz coding questions.

    Interview Questions

    • "Stump me." I was invited to write a code problem on the whiteboard and stump one of the directors.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Just received a call from the original recruiting manager with an offer. Not really any back and forth.
