An Insider's view of SoFi

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

SoFi (and the fintech industry) are incredibly fast-paced. Many people faced burnout during the pandemic, so SoFi implemented SoFridays, where we are encouraged to block out time on Friday without meetings and even sign off early. I’m grateful and proud to work for a company that puts its employees first.


Associate Talent Brand Specialist

What does your typical day look like?

No two days are the same, which I love! I spend most of the day working on projects that are directly connected to our company-wide priority #1 ; which is to create a durable culture where people love to work. Things like creating a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion site, managing our careers page, and hosting events that bring our culture to life.
