Enova ranked 6th for Career Development and 75th overall in the 20th annual Best Places to Work in IT list.
“Enova is an amazingly innovative technology and analytics company, with a history of rapid growth, a global business model, and driven by incredibly smart and motivated people,” said CEO David Fisher. “In just eight years we have grown from a Chicago startup with one product in one country, to now 8 products in four countries, with more than 1,000 plus employees and more than $660 million in annual revenue. Our growth has been fueled by a fantastic team of 170 plus IT programmers who work continuously to deliver innovation on behalf of Enova’s two million customers worldwide. This award is in their honor.”
Enova was also recently named as the top employer of Gen Y Emerging Talent in Chicago by Brill Street + Company.
