Imagine waking up every morning with a sense of purpose. Then imagine your co-workers are doing the same. At the office, everyone’s excited, determined, and passionate. Sounds pretty cool, right?
At Funding Circle, an online marketplace that helps small businesses get loans, there’s definitely that energy in the air.
“We’re building something that’s actually impactful, says Jack Zhou, a software engineer. “I think that everyone here really believes in this mission.”
Michael Rabil, director of partnerships, adds, “We need people who get a lot of energy around building something, making progress, and seeing meaningful movements forward.”
To keep the inspirational juices flowing, team members have created a Wall of Fame. Each week, they nominate famous people from history or recent news that live up to Funding Circle’s values: think smart, make it happen, be open, stand together, and live the adventure. After a company-wide vote, the winner is added to the wall.
Funding Circle employees also bond over Friday happy hours, monthly team outings, ping pong, basketball, and video games in their game room, and lunches near their beautiful downtown office.
“We have incredible smart, driven, dedicated, fun, loving, open, and communicative people who are constantly looking to grow and develop this company,” explains Hanako Justice, people operations associate.
