An Insider's view of SoFi

What's something quirky about your company?

I was surprised by how such a quickly growing company could create such a welcoming and unifying environment for everyone. To see the company executives, especially our CEO, make themselves visible and regularly accessible while pushing this company forward. I love the regular All-Hands meetings, and I really feel as if we’re one big family here.

No two days are the same, which I love! I spend most of the day working on projects that are directly connected to our company-wide priority #1 ; which is to create a durable culture where people love to work. Things like creating a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion site, managing our careers page, and hosting events that bring our culture to life.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've had four roles in six years at SoFi, and in each one, I’ve been able to add a new tool to my tool box. Things like how to analyze data and turn it into usable insights, and how to be an active listener. One thing that really helped me navigate my career here is my willingness to learn new things, and apply them to my job or the task at hand.
