Nova Credit was built with a singular mission: to inspire and facilitate the flow of human diversity, helping the world's moving population to arrive and thrive.
Lack of a domestic credit report history keeps millions of people who move to the U.S. from realizing their dreams. We enable newcomers to the U.S. to share the credit history they built abroad with American underwriters to access financial products and more here. With our industry-leading technology, we connect lenders to a more diverse consumer base and ensure access to finance for millions of people each year.

We're in the business of credit, so we like to give credit where credit is due. Our company culture is built on supporting each other's efforts and recognizing each other's contributions.
Our values grew organically along with the company. For example, our value of "Tie your neighbor's shoes" is the result of a co-founder's broken arm, which prevented him from—literally—tying his shoes. Novans pitched in to keep him from tripping, in more ways than one.
We strive to create a workplace where people can bring their whole selves and find opportunities for growth.
Nova Credit's products and workforce embody our mission to inspire and facilitate the flow of human diversity. As of late 2019, more than two-thirds of our workforce is composed of immigrants to the U.S., but that is not the only kind of diversity we embrace. We strive for diversity of thought, communication, background, experience and more. Our goal is to create a culture where Novans feel comfortable bringing their entire selves to work, sharing ideas and asking for coaching in a sale, welcoming atmosphere.
We're also stepping up investments to create an even more diverse and inclusive company. How?
We strive to build teams across our organization where people can share unique views informed by their identities.
From aggressively recruiting to fill the pipeline with diverse candidates to our holiday, benefits and workplace choices, we work towards an increasingly inclusive and inviting workplace.
Our product lowers barriers to access to finance for millions of newcomers to the U.S. each year. As we build products, we approach our engineering and design with inclusion in mind.
"I joined Nova because I care deeply about financial inclusion, and enabling broader access to credit history is one of the most powerful ways to achieve that.
My favorite part about working at Nova is hearing from our customers to gain an understanding of how Nova can support their goals and help them grow."
"I've dedicated my career to promoting financial inclusion in emerging markets, and am thrilled to continue that thread at Nova by ensuring that immigrants can access quality financial services in their new home country.
I joined Nova because I believe that this is the right team to solve this complex problem, and because working with these people each day makes me smarter and better (and makes me laugh!)."
"As a German immigrant to the U.S. I face the problem of lacking domestic credit history myself, meaning I’m helping to solve my own problem!
What I love most about Nova are its authentic people and that we’re facing one of the toughest business challenges that I’ve seen."
People who come to Nova Credit most often mention the mission as the reason they joined, but it's the work that keeps them engrossed daily. For software engineers, it's the quality of the code and the unique data problem that motivates them. For marketers, it's the storytelling and challenge of reaching a uniquely diverse global audience of people who move.
