Recruiting at Social Finance is truly a joy. Every day I get to represent opportunities for people to join an organization that cares for its people, invests in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and develops cutting-edge solutions to widespread, systemic social challenges. Inviting folks to join this mission and supporting them along the way is the greatest privilege I could ask for as a Talent professional.
