You will help drive technology innovation in the form of products, features, and platforms.

This is a role on the core Loans Platform team, where we are focused on reducing the average time it takes to fund a loan. We want to improve the effectiveness of the operations team by improving the UX and increasing the degree of automation for funding loans. We have an exciting roadmap for 2020 and is a great opportunity for a product manager who wants to make a significant impact on multiple products.
At SoFi, we innovate on behalf of our members, we are focused reinventing banking services in a way that makes them simple, fast and intuitive. Our goal is to be at the center of our members’ financial lives. We created student loan refinancing, addressing the biggest financial challenge of a new generation through a modern approach to lending and personal finance. We expanded into other types of loans, and then into insurance and wealth management and Money (a modern take on a checking or savings account). SoFi has achieved significant growth, with ambitious plans ahead, but to continue this growth we need great talent.
