Executive Assistant

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm personally most excited about designing and implementing big feature implementations that involve multiple code bases through uncharted territory. The design challenges and unknown aspects provide a stimulating experience with freedom to build creative solutions.


Backend Developer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've gotten tons of experience and a huge confidence boost just working here over time. Also, I have joined some communities to help non-technical entrepreneurs and developers further their careers and I enjoy it thoroughly. Looking back, I can easily say that I would not have progressed this much working anywhere else.


Android Developer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity is what makes us innovative. At SoLo, we are not afraid to change ideas. We release creativity through ownership. This process starts with our management style of understanding, powering creativity out, selecting the best ideas, giving ownership, testing the ideas and implementing them with our team. This is how we win as team.



What is your vision for the company?

SoLo is positioned to be the benchmark for alternative credit scoring and lending in the USA. The underbanked and millennial demographics are more creditworthy than our archaic traditional financial system deem them. SoLo has proven this for thousands of underserved people, but our goal is to be a path to upward financial mobility for millions.
