About SoFi
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
The Lending team focuses on delivering SoFi member experiences related to our student loan, personal loan, and mortgage offerings. As part of our continuing commitment to helping student loan borrowers, we are expanding our employer contribution program, SoFi at Work. The SoFi at Work team is partnering with the world’s leading organizations to deliver a dynamic platform that enables companies and their employees to easily manage student loan contributions and more. We are working on exciting new SoFi at Work initiatives and are looking for a Staff Product Designer to join the Lending team to drive this experience.
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.
