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 have been working at SoFi full-time (More than 3 years)

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SoFi (Healdsburg, CA) in March 2018.
For me, the process so far has been: message on LinkedIn, Phone Screen, Interview, Reference Check, Offer of Employment.
I did not apply for this position but was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn who asked if I would like to schedule a call to talk about the position. The phone screen itself was very friendly and professional but the scheduling was a bit haphazard being rescheduled twice and the follow up emails were a little unorganized as well (interview scheduled outside my availability, one promised email never arrived and I had to text to ask for it, requested salary range was confirmed incorrectly) but every time my recruiter was extremely apologetic, friendly, and quick to assist with resolving the problem.
My in person interview was scheduled for 2 hours and started and ended on on time. I had four, 30 minute, interviews with various managers all of whom were very casual and did not ask any of the typical interview questions such as "what are your greatest strengths/weaknesses" or "where do you see yourself in 5 years." All managers asked "Tell me about yourself" and then asked if I had any questions for them. All were very straightforward and honest and genuine with their answers to my questions of company history and culture.
Following the interview, my recruiter text me that they would like to move forward and sent an email to an online reference verification portal. References were required to respond to an email survey within 48 hours and at least one of my references had to be a former manager that the hiring manager could have a live phone conversation with. While this was in process, my recruiter also send me an overview of the benefits package and made herself available for any questions.
Overall, SoFi has made me feel very valuable to them and everyone has been so friendly and welcoming!
