We help our readers and users answer important questions about their student loans and their finances in general. This process includes verifying information within our content, researching and identifying optimal keywords to highlight, and even participating in content ideation. The goal: make the often-confusing world of student loans and personal finance easy to understand so that our readers can take action.

Since we’re literally all over the map, communication using Slack, Gmail, Basecamp, Google Hangouts, and other tools is key for us. Don't worry—you won't be alone. We communicate regularly throughout the day.

In our small group, each team member uses highly specialized skills while working on a variety of projects. We enjoy giving our team members autonomy to do the work that interests them. We’re focused on the output of each team member, not putting in long hours.

We’re always open to new ways to create better content and make Student Loan Hero better for student loan borrowers, and we want to hear new ideas from you. A large part of our culture and values is transparency. We believe that team members should collaborate and communicate, not compete or engage in office politics.

At the same time, we like to make work as much fun as possible. We want everyone on our team to grow both personally and professionally, which is why we offer wellness and educational bonuses, as well as several other great perks.

Above all, we’re each proud to work on solving meaningful problems and to impact lives every day. Whether it’s authoring a blogpost read by thousands of borrowers or answering a one-on-one customer support question, we value that working for Student Loan Hero makes a positive impact.
