Oportun (formerly Progreso Financiero), is a mission-driven,
financial services company that uses advanced data analytics to provide
responsible credit to underserved Hispanic communities. In early 2015 the
company announced plans to be named “Oportun.” Headquartered in Redwood City,
California, the company was founded in 2005 and made its first loan in
2006. Oportun’s technology determines
every applicant’s ability to repay, including those who do not have credit, and
enables back-office efficiency. The
company delivers a very supportive and welcoming service experience with
bilingual staff across channels and operates more than 130 locations in CA, IL
and TX. The market opportunity for Oportun, is large and growing, with an
estimated 23 million Hispanics in the U.S. who are underserved by mainstream
financing institutions, mainly due to a lack of established credit files,
credit scores, and relevant products.
Oportun was recently named #27 in the large company category
"Best Places to Work in the SF Bay Area in 2015", #49 on "Forbes
2015 Most Promising Companies", and recognized by Inc. 5000 as one of the
"Fastest growing private companies in America in 2014".
We look for the best and the brightest, who aim for high
scale social impact for low-income Americans and the underbanked, thrive on
learning, and are passionate about innovation in financial services.
