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.


We feel privileged to have been named a “Top Workplace” by the Bay Area News Group for three years running, one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in the World for 2020 and recognized as a TIME Magazine 2018 Genius Company for our impact in helping to reinvent the future of lending. For the last three consecutive years, we have been titled Top Workplace by the Bay Area News Group.



Working at Oportun means enjoying a differentiated experience of being part of a team that fosters a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture where we all feel a sense of belonging and are encouraged to share our perspectives.
