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.
