An Insider's view of Freedom Financial Network

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

It's important to be available when the team needs you to get the job done—that's what matters most. People have lives and responsibilities outside of work that matter to them. We work together as a team to connect in various ways and balance things out.

Andy

Senior Director Product Management

What projects are you most excited about?

We’ve recently been working on migrating our Angular applications to React. In this transition, we’ve had a lot of opportunities to learn about tools like Storybook for documenting components, NextJS for creating a more performant application, or how to build npm packages for sharing our components across applications.

Carrie

Software Engineer, Front End

What makes someone successful on your team?

If you are not curious. If you are not innovative. If you don't have a quick mind and cannot solve the problems, this is not the place for you. We are building the best tech–something you can be proud of. My team is developing something that didn't exist before and you own what you do.

Roman

Principal Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

40-50% of Americans are forgotten by financial services. They are scraping by – don't have the money for investment firms nor the desperation for payday loans. We are building better solutions, driven by technology to move these forgotten families forward.

Jeff

Managing Partner

What's something quirky about your company?

Freedom Financial is the biggest company that many have never heard of, but it is a proven business with tremendous potential. There is excellent opportunity here with a stable, healthy company that is having a lot of impact.

Shira

VP Product and Consumer Experience
