About the Role
By joining SoFi, you're joining a new kind of finance company based around speed, transparency, and alignment with our members’ interests. Our goal is to be the center of our members’ financial lives. We created student loan refinancing, addressing the biggest financial challenge this new generation has through a new approach to lending. We expanded into other types of loans, and then into insurance and wealth management with similarly inventive products. As the company has grown, we’ve been able to help more people with these tools.
SoFi has achieved significant growth, with big plans ahead. In just the last year, we've more than doubled our member base (260,000 strong), doubled loan volume ($8 billion in 2016), and grown our team from under 200 people to more than 900. We're preparing to go global, with expansion to Australia and Canada planned this year. And we're well capitalized to power all this growth, having raised $1.9 billion in equity backing. But we'll only be able to continue this growth with great talent, and that includes you.
Do you love creating innovative, dynamic web solutions? Want to experiment with the latest CSS3 styles such as flexbox and animation? Hate having to support IE10 and other old browsers?
SoFi is looking for a full-time Front-End Developer who can work closely together with our designers and engineers to turn conceptual visual designs into efficient, dynamic, and standards-compliant websites. Your work will directly benefit our members by helping them to achieve their goals and change their financial lives for the better. This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the fastest growing fintech companies in the Bay Area focused on disrupting a huge industry.
You enjoy a challenge and love to tinker and experiment. You are always on the lookout to discover new and more optimal solutions instead of just sticking with what may have worked in the past but you are still able to be pragmatic and realistic about business needs. You care about creating innovative and responsive websites. You aren't rooted to a particular framework (or any) but are flexible and willing to use the best tool to get the job done. You are renowned for your attention to detail.
When applying, please provide A URL or code sample demonstrating the best of your JS and/or CSS & HTML coding ability.
Nice to Have
