A forward-thinking engineering culture.

We look to solve hard problems.

Build Fast

We view code that is written as a draft. Nothing is ever final. We believe that the best process is iteration and we want to get products in front of customers fast.

Learning & Growing

We encourage continual learning, continual improvement, continual iteration of all things. Our engineers attend, present, and support conferences and local user groups.

Agile Teams

At AvantCredit, we work in flat, well balanced teams. Each team has a mix of skill levels and talents to complete projects quickly. Trying new ideas is encouraged since we aim to be a leader in the lending industry.

Remote Work

Delivery and results above hours and time tracking. We employ a relaxed working environment with schedule flexibility and remote working opportunities.

Politics

The best idea wins. We defend our work with vigor and back our decisions with metrics. Politics have no place at Avant which allow us to move fast and make the quickest decisions.

Work-Life Balance

We work hard and play hard. Our teams always make it a point to take a step back from their work and have a good time.
