ABOUT TECHNOLOGY @ OPORTUN
The Technology team @ Oportun is dedicated to delivering and maintaining performant, elegant, and intuitive systems to our business partners and retail customers. We work on a very unique platform, combining service-oriented platform services with sophisticated user experiences, all enabled through a best-in-class (and fun to use!) automated development infrastructure. We prove that FinTech is more fun, more challenging, and in our case, more rewarding as we build technology that changes our customers’ lives.
This is a role where you can take responsibility in leading the technology effort – from technical requirements gathering to final successful delivery of the product.
