Description


We are looking for a talented, passionate Senior Performance Engineer to help shape and drive the future of SoFi's engineering platform. As part of the performance engineering team, you will be working across the entire architecture stack and product offerings. You'll be in the middle of it all – new product launches, supporting our continuing growth, helping deliver a great customer experience and continually growing as an engineer.

We created student loan refinancing, addressing the biggest financial challenge of a new generation through a modern approach to lending and personal finance. Next we expanded our products and services across loans, wealth management, and insurance. SoFi has achieved significant growth, with ambitious plans ahead, but to continue this growth we need great talent. And that starts with you.
