Since extending our first loan in 2006, Oportun has made over 4 million loans, totaling over $10 billion to hardworking low- and moderate-income individuals. In turn, Oportun has helped more than 905,000 people begin establishing the credit history required to enter the financial mainstream. At the same time, Oportun’s customers have saved an estimated $1.9 billion in interest and fees compared to the alternatives typically available to them.
ABOUT DESIGN @ OPORTUN
The Design team @ Oportun is dedicated to the cultivation, delivery, and thoughtful reflection on the systems, mechanisms, languages, and assets that our customers (internal and external) interact with on a daily basis. That seems like a lot, right? The brass tacks of our design philosophy is actually quite simple: we succeed in our obsession—for our customers, their unique needs, their present challenges, and their future goals. We model and teach empathy, we sweat the details, and we deliver experiences that encourage beneficial (and delightful!) outcomes.
