Nelnet is a diversified and innovative company committed to enriching lives through the power of service as a student loan servicer, professional services company, consumer loan originator and servicer, payments processor, and K-12 and higher education expert. For over 40 years, Nelnet has been serving its customers, associates, and communities.
The perks of working at Nelnet go beyond our benefits package. When you join the Nelnet team, you're part of a community invested in the success of each individual. That support comes through in our work, as we are united by our mission of creating opportunities for people where they live, learn, and work.
Paying for school is really confusing. Figuring it all out doesn’t just impact a student - it’s usually a family affair. Not only that, what happens after school? How does that student know if they’re making the right choice for now AND later? And what about savings, spending, and taking out extra loans… how does all of THAT fit together? We’re a brand new digital bank and we’re building the solution. Finding the answers. All in one mobile app.

Nelnet Bank does what’s right, not easy. It’s one of our (six) core values. We’re the first ILC chartered bank to be approved in 13 years and we’ve set out to solve how students and their families make their educational dreams come true. Alongside all sorts of other fully integrated banking products like savings accounts, debit cards, and more. From there we’re building innovative rewards programs, adding true gamification, and pushing the banking boundaries even further.

As a new bank in formation, you’ll be in a fast-paced startup environment and have a direct impact on our success. As a Senior Back-end Software Engineer, you’ll help architect our systems and serve as a technical leader on our team. In addition to extensive coding, you will participate in our release planning, scoping, and road mapping activities.

We’ll count on you to have deep technical discussions and creative brainstorms in pursuit of innovative mobile, web, and API-driven banking products.
