About Us

We love what we do. Over 500,000 customers have been helped by transparent & convenient personal loans.

Chop Loan is built from a team of passionate Chicagoans looking to change the online lending industry. Starting in 2012, our mission is to lower the barriers and costs of borrowing.

Life at Chop Loan

Laughter, snack munching and tech-chats are just a few things you’ll hear in our office. With our Chicago, Los Angeles and London locations, we’re close to diverse restaurants, transportation and residential living.


We encourage and sponsor our team to visit conferences, take educational courses and progress themselves professionally. This growth directly benefits us and we make it a priority for the Avant family.


We love to stay connected. We stay connected through town halls, demo days, and team outings.


Enjoy great benefits, like 401k matching, discounted gym membership, flexible work hours, a challenging work environment, and more!

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 employees attend, present, and support conferences and local user groups.

Agile Teams

At Avant, 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.


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.
