The Technology team @ Oportun is dedicated to this mission which we enable by creating, delivering, and maintaining elegant, intuitive, and performant systems to support the needs of our customers and business partners.

 

Overview

Oportun is looking for an experienced and motivated Staff Software Engineer to join our Origination product team.

You are curious, creative and constantly think of new ways to improve what we do so that we can fulfill our mission. A willingness to do whatever it takes to ship a product to market.

As a member of the Origination team you will leverage Java, Groovy, and Spring to create new paths for borrowers so they can continually build a positive credit history.
