WHO IS OPORTUN?
Oportun is a financial technology company founded in 2005. Our mission is to provide inclusive affordable Financial Services that helps people with little or no credit history establish credit and build a better future. Oportun uses advanced data analytics and technology to “score” and lend money to individuals who other lenders consider “unscorable” because of their limited credit history.
Between our first loan in 2006 and March 2018, Oportun disbursed more than $6 billion in 2+ million affordable loans. During that time, Oportun customers also saved more than $1.4 billion in interest and fees by choosing an Oportun loan instead of one of the alternatives that are widely available to people with little or no credit history.
In recognition of Oportun’s goals of increasing economic opportunity for our clients, promoting community development, and serving low-income or underserved communities, Oportun was certified by the United States Department of Treasury as a Community Development Financial Institution or CDFI.
Oportun is a great place to work if you are as enthusiastic about helping others as you are about your own professional development and career. As our CEO Raul Vazquez says, “Earning a paycheck to support yourself and your family is critical. Satisfying career ambitions is rewarding. But there is no greater privilege than having a challenging job where you are growing and learning professionally, while having a strong positive impact on the lives of others… And that is what we do here every day.
