Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
It is our vision and responsibility to create a company where every person has equal access to opportunity and the ability to be heard – equal opportunity to safely stretch, grow, and thrive in their role and career. The 2019 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Report summarizes our first step in this valuable journey.
Meet the Opptimists
OppLoans employees approach every new challenge with an unparalleled ability to see what could be rather than settle for what is. That’s why we call ourselves Opptimists.
“We know that the only way we can keep getting better is to hire the best people. It’s what our customers deserve.”
“OppLoans is a great place for parents to work, opportunity to move their careers forward and support to help them care for their families.”
“When you support your employees like OppLoans does, they stick around.”
“We care a lot about our employees and ultimately, happy employees result in happy customers.”
“I hope that everyone is lucky enough to work with those that encourage their growth and value their input.”
“The ‘secret’ to OppLoans isn’t really all that secret: We hire smart, hard-working people and then we put them in a position to succeed.”
“If I had to describe OppLoans, it would be that opportunities are endless.”
“This can be the most rewarding job you ever have – and it can be a lot of fun, which never hurts.”
“This is the first job I’ve ever had, but I know that what we have here is very special.”
“The great thing about OppLoans is that the opportunities will definitely be there.”
“Every day comes with a new challenge; there’s always something fun to look forward to.”
“What keeps a business running is the love and attention you give your employees. That’s your real bottom line.”
“From the moment I walked through the doors, I could feel this energy, this palpable buzz that ran from one end of the office to the other.”
“We’re continually reinvesting in company culture and creating a home for Chicago’s best to do their best work.”
“In order to build a strong, collaborative team, you have to invest in culture — and we do.”

“When all our employees can be their authentic selves in the workplace, it fuels a culture of inclusion and innovation.”
Living Our Values
We want people to be excited to come to work every morning and know they are a part of something great. That’s why we prize hard work, collaboration, collegiality, and letting the best ideas win the day. These principles are embodied in our four core values: Dare to Win, Hold the Door, Say What You See, and Do What You Say.
Driven by Our Mission
OppLoans was founded with a mission to help middle-income consumers build a better financial path. We believe that giving back is important–that’s why we give back to our employees and encourage them to give back to their own communities. Whether it’s our Oppt to Give quarterly rewards, the work of our many employee-led communities, or the opportunity to use volunteer-specific time off for charitable work, we’re always looking for new ways to live our mission.
Perks and Benefits
In addition to offering generous insurance benefits and 401(k) matching, we pride ourselves on a fun, collaborative and supportive company culture. Prior to COVID-19, this meant in-office events like game nights, bagel mornings and chair massages as well as semi-annual company parties. With all our teams working remotely right now, we’re holding digital events in their place, like trivia nights, Zoom cooking classes, movie nights, and coffee chats. Through our lifestyle benefits platform Fringe, employees can access discounted services that support a healthy work/life balance. We are always looking for ways to treat our employees well and show them they’re appreciated.
Our employee-led communities enable co-workers to organize around shared passions and identities and to offer each other support. Our current employee-led communities focus on gender equality; LGBTQIAP+ inclusion; Black, Latinx, and East Asian identities; workplace accessibility; and philanthropy.
Campus Recruiting (Internships)
Bringing in the best and brightest means offering a best-in-class opportunity for today’s college students. Our summer internships give current undergrad and grad students the chance to make real business contributions from day one. Many companies take their interns for granted; we don’t.
