We recently sat down with Cameron Purcell, a key member of the On Deck Team, to get his insight into what it’s really like working at a fast growing company like On Deck.
1. Explain what you do in your role with On Deck.
I go work everyday to help small business owners – ranging from corner delis to more established companies – get the financing they need to grow their businesses.
2. Why did you decide to join On Deck?
During my interview process, I could just tell that everyone genuinely likes working with each other, was motivated, and most importantly shared a common goal of changing the way small businesses access capital.
3. In your opinion, what is the best part about working at On Deck?
The accessibility. If you have an idea there is always someone there to listen. Bit by bit, our products keep getting better and it is because nearly every employee has put their finger print on it in some way. Also, being a major part of helping these small businesses grow is a great feeling. We’re really making a difference on Main Street – these people put everything they have into growing their businesses, and we’re able to take it to the next level.
4. What advice would you give to someone looking to join the company?
If you have a great work ethic, a positive attitude and a desire to part of a rapidly growing company, you will surely enjoy your time with us.
5. What would someone be surprised to know about On Deck?
You would think that with a name like “On Deck” we would have decent softball team… all joking aside, it’s great to spend some time with my co-workers outside of the office on our softball team. We actually have a lot of fun!
