CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Braviant Holdings LLC, a leading provider of analytics and technology-driven financing solutions for consumers and small businesses, announced today that its Consumer Lending division will be expanding its Chicago presence in 2017. Braviant’s newly opened Chicago office, located in the heart of the Loop, houses the Executive Leadership team for Consumer Lending, as well as key personnel with roles in Technology, Analytics, Marketing, Legal, Finance and Accounting. The office space has a modern, open layout with significant room for additional headcount, allowing Braviant to tap into one of the nation’s leading FinTech talent pools as the company continues to execute on its growth and diversification plans.
“Since opening our Chicago office in the middle of last year, we have more than tripled our headcount there across a broad range of business functions,” explained Stephanie Klein, CEO of Consumer Lending for Braviant Holdings. “In 2017, we plan to continue investing in top FinTech talent and expect to further double our current staff here in Chicago. With a number of positions opening over the next few months, we welcome people to monitor Linkedin and Glassdoor for opportunities to join our fast-growing business.”
Over the past year, Braviant has hired the best and brightest in the FinTech industry, thought leaders from the private and public sector, and innovators in alternative consumer lending. Braviant’s management team attributes the company’s successful recruiting efforts to its strong financial backing, flat organizational structure, and entrepreneurial culture. Says Klein, “Braviant provides our employees with a level of career exposure and opportunity that can only be found in a startup environment, but we also back that up with competitive compensation and benefits packages. We offer big company perks without the big company bureaucracy. This gives us a unique value proposition that is attractive to a diverse pool of young professionals at the beginning of their careers and industry veterans.”
