Company Information

We are a small new startup in the personal investment/finance space looking to build a company and brand that will become a household name. There are currently 55 million US households with meaningful investable assets, representing 11 trillion dollars, and 80% of them are not on track to meet their long-term financial goals. After aggregating their existing assets into a single portal, we start by creating a sound financial plan based on both their needs and their risk tolerance. This is followed by an assessment of their current situation and a series of recommendations to help get them on the right track. Our software then works proactively to keep them there.

Parting Thoughts

This is a ground-floor opportunity to build something amazing. You would be joining us as employee #3 and working for a CEO who is an accomplished entrepreneur with two successful, high-value exits under his belt. We are looking for someone with the skills and, most importantly, the passion to build a top-tier user interface that will be above and beyond anything else out there in the personal finance space. If you are interested, please send us your resume and we'll be in touch.
