SmartBiz Loans® has been named one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology. This is the 3rd year in a row SmartBiz Loans has earned this distinction.
SmartBiz Loans is the leading online bank marketplace for SBA loans. The company offers additional financial products for small business owners through its network of banks, helping entrepreneurs get the right financing at the right time. Based in San Francisco, the company expanded to Austin, Texas in 2017 and operates out of both locations with a staff of over 100 employees.
The awards program, created in 2017, is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the financial technology industry. The 2020 list included 49 companies and was published by American Banker, National Mortgage News, PaymentsSource, Financial Planning, and Digital Insurance.
SmartBiz Loans CEO Evan Singer says, “We are honored to receive this distinction for the third time. It’s a nod to our team of diverse, driven, and accomplished financial professionals who work together every day to help small business owners achieve their dreams. The goals we share help foster a supportive environment where employees do their best work to help customers get the financing they need.”
The award is a project of Arizent and Best Companies Group. Richard Melville, Group Editorial Director at Arizent says, “The competition for talent in technology is intense and companies named to Arizent’s Best Places to Work in Financial Technology are setting the standard in terms of cultures that help people thrive.”
Companies entered a two-part survey process to determine Arizent’s Best Places to Work in Financial Technology. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
