An Insider's view of Dave Inc.

What's something quirky about your company?

We are now a virtual first company! It's been an adjustment for us all, but our values and sense of community have not been lost during this time. For example, I was able to gain full support from Leadership to provide our team with virtual coding training courses. Dave really cares in advancing our collective potential as a team.

What projects are you most excited about?

Working at Dave has been extremely rewarding because I am able to have my ideas heard and see them implemented in our technology/product! I've been able to design an analytics platform, perform feature engineering for the ML model that powers our main product, and build up our ML infrastructure to support faster iterations in model building.

How to meet our members where they are in their financial journey.
