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.

Overview

Oportun is looking for an experienced and motivated Staff Software Engineer to join our Origination product team.

You are curious, creative and constantly think of new ways to improve what we do so that we can fulfill our mission. A willingness to do whatever it takes to ship a product to market.  

 

The Origination team develops and maintains the systems that allow our agents in more than 300 stores to provide a streamlined loan payments experience to over a million borrowers. We do this using software built on a robust microservice based platform using a Restful architecture.  This allows multiple front-end UIs to seamlessly access shared services to create different loan payment workflow processes. As a member of the Origination team you will leverage Java, Groovy, and Spring to create new paths for borrowers so they can continually build a positive credit history.
