SoFi is a leader in marketplace lending and the largest provider of student loan refinancing, with over $1.3B in loans to date. We're transforming financial services for ambitious early-stage professionals with student loan refinancing, MBA loans, mortgages, and personal loans. Unlike traditional lenders, our proprietary underwriting approach takes into account merit and employment history to offer unique credit products our members won't find elsewhere.
We were the first to offer refinancing of federal student loans, and have invested in delivering an online lending experience that meets the needs of this busy, digital generation. SoFi borrowers, called members, also enjoy benefits such as entrepreneurship support, career coaching, and unemployment protection.
SoFi is disrupting finance via social. We're leveraging alumni networks to build a better financing marketplace and solve real-world problems like massive student debt.
We combine the growth trajectory of a startup with the stability of a venture-backed company and we're one of the hottest financial technology companies today (http://money.cnn.com/gallery/leadership/2013/11/18/top-10-mba-startups.fortune/6.html)
Our core stack is Java / Play / MySQL, but you don't have to be expert in any of these - above all, we're looking for world-class developers to create game-changing technology.
Experience in any of the following is desirable:
Mobile: iOS/Objective-C and Android/Java
Back-end: Scala, Redis, and ElasticSearch
Shared-nothing architectures and design principles
Knowledge of big data tools such as Hadoop and MapReduce architectures
Experience with Amazon EC2 or other major cloud computing platforms, Bamboo/Jenkins and SBT/Maven
We offer competitive compensation, stock options, an open time-off policy, medical, dental and vision to all employees.
Please send us your resume, including relevant links to your GitHub profile, StackOverflow answers, and any other public/open source programming contributions.
