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.

Whitney

Loss Management Analyst

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.

Justin

Data Scientist II

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since starting at Dave, I've been able to grow into a position I've been striving for in my previous roles fairly quickly. Hard work really does pay off at Dave because the team notices our dedication and recognizes us accordingly. I'm very proud to work for a company that acknowledges the work I do, making me feel empowered and significant!

Brittany

Fraud Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

How to meet our members where they are in their financial journey. We achieve this by really focusing on being customer-first and working to deeply understand who our members are, what solutions they’re looking for, how they like to digest information, what they’re motivated by, what their interests are, and what goals they have.
