SoFi – Why Work For Us?


Our Story

SoFi is a modern finance company taking an unprecedented approach to lending and wealth management. We’ve replaced the impersonal, transactional bank experience with a long-term partnership, enabling our members to realize the full potential of their money, careers and relationships. Our members constantly push the limits of what life has to offer. Whether looking to refinance their student loans, buy their dream home, or simply seek advice as they ascend in their careers, SoFi provides the products and tools to match their ambitions and propel them to new levels of financial greatness.

 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.

    I have been working at SoFi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    With being a new company, SoFi has nailed it with employee compensation for their work! Within a year I have already been promoted once and am almost eligible to be promoted again, if anything new opens up! They definitely are devoted to their members and love have employees that are just as excited to share their love of our products as our members are!

    Cons

    The sick policy could be revised as you are only allotted 3 sick days per year, but if you are feeling sick you can always schedule PTO to avoid any penalties ! Would like if we were able to accrue both sick time and pto to help avoid any occupancies!

    Advice to Management

    Love our new CEO Anthony! In such a short amount of time he has been able to do so much for our company! As part of our OKRs we are looking at employee compensation and there has already been so much progress! Looking forward to what’s to come!

    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.
