We're a little software company solving big problems for Auto Dealerships.

SelectFI Team - October 2023

When our founder, Tom Vullo, led finance and training for a top 15 dealership, he saw a lot of potential for speeding up and improving the accuracy of financing customers for vehicle purchases. Each dealership works with 20-30 lenders, and estimating which lenders will finance customers based on credit profiles and vehicle values is prone to mistakes and time-consuming restarts. It's a process better suited for software....

Tom created Lender Selector® in 2022, and after beta testing it for 8 months, began building a team to develop and sell it in 2023. Now the company has 12 employees, dozens of dealership subscribers, and has completed pre-seed funding to grow the company even further.

Good benefits... that will just get better.

As a startup, we can't offer all of the benefits that large companies can... that's part of the trade-off. But we have a good base of benefits that doesn't make working for SelectFI a risk for you and your family.
