Job description

Fora Financial is a technology enabled, leading provider of flexible financing to small and medium sized businesses. Since our inception in 2008, we have supported more than 35,000 merchants nationwide with over $3 billion of capital used for a variety of purposes, from funding everyday operating expenses to managing cash flow gaps to facilitating business expansion, and much more.

We offer a competitive salary, growth potential, and a casual yet professional hybrid work environment.

After work, you can hop on a CitiBike to ride to the Hudson River Park, take a stroll to a show on Broadway or attend an event at Madison Square Garden. Our office sets the stage for our employees’ success and well-being. We provide all the tools and support needed to maximize your career potential, in addition to perks and extras like daily breakfasts, endless snacks, catered lunches, a chill lounge/games area and more.
