What is FinTech anyway?

FinTech, or financial technology, is a fast growing industry that seeks to utilize technology in order to make financial services and transactions more efficient, inclusive, and customer-friendly.  The broad FinTech landscape includes innovators focused on digital payments and currencies, crowdfunding, online lending, and automated robo-advisory services.

OnDeck is one of the more noteworthy FinTech innovators given its position as the leader in online small business lending. Since 2007, the company has powered Main Street’s growth through leading lending technology, analytics and service, delivering over $4 billion dollars to small businesses across the United States, Canada, and Australia.

So what’s it like to work at OnDeck?

One Fairygodboss review states that OnDeck is a “great place to work where you are hired based on your skillset, not the gender you happen to be. More women [are] being hired as we grow, and [the] great benefits package include[s] 4-months maternity leave.”

Lorna Hagen, SVP of People Operations tells us, “We believe in our team members and power their growth through being challenged every day and offering careers that inspire. We’re all about teamwork, passion and making an impact.”

OnDeck employees work hard, but they also have fun -- whether it’s ping-pong games or a weekly happy hour in the office.

OnDeck was named one of the Fortune.com and Great Place to Work 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials, 2015.

  • Hi. I have been an Executive Assistant, or some other assistant/operations person for over 30 years. After losing my job of many years due to restructuring, I am looking for a permanent position. I feel as though assistant positions are on the way out, given anecdotal evidence by other assistants as well as executives I've spoken to. Please note that I am in pursuit of my bachelor's, but it is not yet completed. Apparently 30 years of experience doesn't mean anything if I don't have a degree. I've been told that it is recognized that I am intelligent and eager to learn pretty much anything (as well as easy to work with) so do not pigeon-hole myself into going after assistant roles, but I don't know what else I should look into or other keywords to use when searching for positions. Does anyone have any guidance on what kinds of jobs are out there?

  • Hello,
    I have worked for 6.8 years in Financial sector ( Stock Exchange and a Bank). I had to quit my job in bank and relocate to another country because of my marriage. It's been two years now that I am unable to find a job in this country in banking or finance. Honestly, there is a part of me who does not want to get into numbers anymore. Throughout my career, customer service was my strength. I love talking to people, solving their problems, it makes me happy. Now I am stuck at home. I need to be financially independent but at the same time I need to find the right career for me. Kindly guide what all career opportunities I can explore after banking with a post graduation diploma in Banking. And how can I get into Hospitality Industry? Thanks.

  • Hello, my company pays 100% of my maternity for 12 weeks. Initially I was told the process is for me to submit my state pay stubs at whatever frequency I'd like and my company would pay the difference to ensure I received 100% of my income. Last week I casually sent my HR department a note and they told me they can no longer honor that policy and won't pay the 100% until I return from maternity leave. Is there any laws to protect me in this situation? It's creating both stress and financial hardships.

  • Hi - I recently left my job and became pregnant. I am 12 weeks pregnant and job hunting. Its possible that I will have a couple of job offers in the next month. At what point in the interview/offer process do I tell an employer that I'm pregnant? Are there companies that will hold my job during maternity leave even though I won't qualify for FMLA? I'm also concerned with affecting a new relationship with an employer by revealing that I will be going on leave in six months. Has anyone else experienced this? Looking for facts and words of encouragement!
