We are OppLoans
Growth with a Purpose
OppLoans is a growing FinTech company that provides accessible and simple-to-understand lending products for middle-income consumers with five-star customer service. We’re growing fast with profitable returns, and new employees can make an immediate impact.
OppLoans is a team of caring and inventive “Opptimists” with diverse perspectives and backgrounds. OppLoans employees approach every new challenge with an unparalleled ability to see what could be rather than settle for what is. 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 collaboration, collegiality, and letting the best ideas win the day. We are looking for engineers who are excited by the chance to challenge the FinTech status quo.
If you want to have a tremendous impact at one of the Inc. 500 fastest growing companies, we want to hear from you. While opportunities vary from team to team, here are some examples of projects previous interns have worked on:
- Finance - Perform deep analysis of bank fees, identifying key drivers which allow us to forecast these fees going forward.
- Accounting - Develop upload templates to report revenue and cash.
- Credit - Use NLP techniques and other ML/AI techniques to categorize large volumes of text data, allowing us to better understand our customers and enhance the service and experience we provide.
- Business Operations - Use machine learning models to determine the segments that exist in our customer base, and how they work with our application process differently.
- Product - Add new self-service functionality to our customer portal to improve UI and reduce call volume.
- Marketing - Use data on customer behavior to redesign the loan refinance experience.
- HR - Create a tool to assist with workforce planning.
Key Job Responsibilities:
Responsibilities will differ based on department and assigned project. At OppLoans, interns aren't simply doing rudimentary tasks or chores. They're given opportunities that require high levels of critical thinking, collaboration, and leadership. Every summer, interns have been responsible for creating systems, tools, or practices that have substantially impacted our bottom line. You'll work closely with your manager to set ambitious goals and measure performance along the way.
We're seeking passionate, innovative problem solvers with a desire to have a real impact. Candidates must graduate in 2021 with a Bachelor's or Master's degree, preferably in a field related to your department of interest. Please note, we will only consider candidates who will be in the Chicago area for summer break.
