Company Overview


Oportun (Nasdaq: OPRT) is a financial services company and digital platform that provides responsible consumer credit to hardworking people in the United States. Using A.I.-driven models that are built on years of proprietary customer insights and billions of unique data points, we have extended millions of loans and billions of dollars in affordable credit to consumers, the majority of whom live in low-and moderate-income communities. Since about half of our new customers come to Oportun without a FICO score, we play a key role in the communities we serve by being able to offer them an affordable and credit-building alternative to payday and auto title lenders. In recognition of our responsibly designed products which help consumers build their credit history, Oportun has been certified as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) since 2009.

With headquarters in California and a remote-first corporate culture, our 3,000+ team members work in Oportun locations and remotely throughout the United States, Mexico, and India.  Our global operations include our Mexico contact centers and administrative offices, our India technology development center, and our US corporate, technology, and retail operations.

Cloud Infrastructure is forming its first SRE team to partner with engineering in making reliability a first-class concern throughout the software development lifecyle. To carry out this vision, we need engineers who are as much dev as ops, as confident in Terraform as in Kotlin, and as calm leading an incident response as drafting a network diagram. You'll advocate for better testing and faster, safer releases. You'll help define and defend SLOs, and in their defense pioneer the smoothest developer experience imaginable, ensuring the right way is always the easy way. You'll passionately automate away human error and toil wherever you find it, while leaving maximum room for human creativity and craft.
