On the OppLoans tech team, we build innovative systems that create new financial products and enable a five-star customer experience. Our team members approach every new challenge with an unparalleled ability to see what could be rather than settle for what is — and are granted the autonomy to own their ideas.
OppLoans employees prioritize collaboration, honesty, and letting the best ideas win the day. That’s why we call ourselves Opptimists.
“As an intern in the tech department, I was surprised at how quickly I was made to feel like a member of the team.”
“It’s a testament to the culture we’ve built here — one that balances hard work, great results, and a healthy dose of fun.”
"I've never been in a work environment that balances individual autonomy and team success so well."
“At OppLoans, all opinions are welcomed. No matter who you are, your thoughts are given weight and value.”
"The speed, accuracy, and precision we’ve been able to achieve is a testament to our culture of accessible leadership.”
“My colleagues and I support each other every step of the way.”
“In order to build a strong, collaborative team, you have to invest in culture — and we do.”
"At OppLoans, what we do matters. And we think that is an awesome perk."

At OppLoans, we give our engineers the right tools and processes to succeed. That support starts with providing modern tools and top-of-the-line hardware, but the most important thing we give our tech team members is autonomy. Teams can choose their own tools and build the processes that work best for them. We put new software into production multiple times a day. If you’re tired of writing great code and then watching it languish in the pipeline for months, drop us an email.
When we look for talent, we look beyond languages and prior experience. Our tech is a web of interconnected systems — both internal and external — that allow the business to function smoothly, safely, and efficiently. We code in a variety of different languages — including Ruby on Rails, Clojure, and Salesforce. We want tech talent that understands the broader business context, that can put themselves in our customers’ shoes and deliver the best products and solutions they need to build a better financial path.
At OppLoans, we cultivate an inclusive culture where employees are encouraged to be their best selves. Through our Oppt for Tech Diversity meetup series, we provide inclusive networking opportunities for all members of the Chicago tech community regardless of race, gender, or identity. Our tech team also includes members from both traditional CS backgrounds and more non-traditional backgrounds, including PhDs in bio-medicine and astrophysics, a clarinet major, and a former member of our Loan Advocate team. We believe in letting our best ideas win — and a more diverse, inclusive workplace enables great ideas to thrive.
As a member of the Chicago tech community and sponsor of the Illinois Technology Association, we understand the importance of industry representation and professional development. Most of our engineers attend at least one conference per year, and several of our teams hold weekly internal seminars on subjects like Clojure and Kubernetes. Our Chief Technology Officer, Andy Pruitt, is a long-time member of the Chicago tech scene and frequently speaks at panels and events around the city. If you’re looking to sharpen your skills and broaden your network within Chicago tech, we’re the spot for you.
We believe in letting the best ideas win—and great ideas come from great talent. Find the right role for you and apply today.
Helping our customers build a better financial path starts with helping our tech talent build better solutions. We’re hiring for tech positions throughout 2020 — come join us!
