An Insider's view of TrueML

What are some social events your company does?

There are a growing number of public and private offerings available to all employees. Since we are mainly a remote environment, there are bi-monthly meetings designed to explore & celebrate mental health, physical wellness, gender, race, and equity. Leadership is also very diligent in organizing department offsites.


Sales Representative

What does your typical day look like?

A day at TrueML is fun as it’s truly different day-to-day. It can include defining requirements, working with Engineers, talking to our customers or clients, discussing new initiatives in the pipeline, building buy-in into our roadmap, and more. It's a mix of meetings, Slack conversations, and in-person working sessions and is never predictable.


Senior Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Beautiful things can happen if you work diligently and communicate your goals to your manager. For example, my current role, Paralegal Operations Analyst II, is a "hybrid role" because I expressed interest in learning about operations. I also expressed interest in a leadership role and was placed in the company's management development series!


Paralegal Operations Analyst II

What is your vision for the company?

We began our journey by launching the first digital collection agency, TrueAccord. Throughout the years, we've learned where TrueML can create value for those in debt. Having interacted with tens of millions of consumers, TrueML is in a unique position to promote its ultimate vision: A world in which no one gets locked out of the financial system.


Co-Founder & Chief Innovation Officer

What's something quirky about your company?

The TrueAccordians represent a virtual band experience made up of employees from all over the company. With lyricists, singers, pianists, drummers, and even a saxophonist to boot, this unique extracurricular is easily a favorite work perk.
