Description

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. 

The opportunity
Our Invest product and design team is designing for the future of personal investing. Our mission is to help our members find their path to financial independence by providing them with the tools, resources, and guidance they need to get there. We're building machine learning (ML) driven experiences that  empower people to be proactive about getting their money right. Whether someone wants to keep tabs on their spending, track their goals for the future, pay off their debts, or get personalized recommendations to improve their finances, we see a future where people learn how to be financially fit . We have an exciting roadmap for 2019 and beyond and are seeking product designers who are passionate about creating better financial solutions for people. This is a great opportunity for a product designer who wants to help shape the evolution of these capabilities for years to come. 

At SoFi, you’ll become part of a new kind of finance company whose ambition is to help our members achieve financial independence and reach their goals. We aim to be at the center of our members’ financial lives, and to help every member get their money right. We created student loan refinancing, addressing the biggest financial challenge of a new generation through a modern approach to lending and personal finance. Next we expanded our products and services across loans, wealth management, and insurance. SoFi Money—a modern take on a checking or savings account--is our newest innovation and disruption to the financial services industry. SoFi has achieved significant growth, with ambitious plans ahead, but to continue this growth we need great talent. And that starts with you.
