SoFi – Why Work For Us?


Our Story

SoFi is a values-driven company on a mission to help our members get their money right. We create modern financial products and services that help people borrow, save, spend, invest, and protect their money better, so that they can achieve financial independence and realize their ambitions—from owning a home to saving for retirement, paying off their student loans, and more.



Hear what our employees have to say! 

 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SoFi in September 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • There were some questions about specific Java features that I couldn't answer.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I tried to ask for a slightly bigger salary, but because my experience made my hiring questionable to begin with, they didn't budge.
