Job Description

The financial system does not work for the average person, a new approach is required to level the playing field. As a disruptive fintech startup we will rebuild financial advice from the ground up to benefit those who most need help while empowering our users to make a positive impact with their money. This mission starts by automating and optimizing debt decisions to free up cash. Next, we recommend strategies to optimize excess cash considering interest rates, financial stability, planned expenses and investment returns. Then we determine the optimal investment strategy based on a user’s preferences for risk and impact (e.g., ESG). Our goal is to automate all these decisions so people no longer need to worry about complex financial decisions. And we plan to do this while significantly disrupting asset management and financial advice costs.

Headquartered in Austin, TX, we are looking for a world-class Software with the character, grit, and determination to make this revolution a reality. You should be someone who enjoys the ever-evolving nature of startup work and are willing to pitch in whenever and wherever help is needed. Most of all, our goal is to redefine financial advice and we want to work with people who are excited by this goal and have the talent to deliver on it.

We're primiarily looking for Front-End focused people working in React, but are open to anyone familiar with our stack that's excited by our mission.
