We are a fast-growing, mission-driven financial services company that provides quality financial services for all: from protecting grandma’s money from scammers to providing supplemental financial tools that support veterans with disabilities.

  • Shape the strategy for the investment advisory business in close partnership with the executive team
  • Manage a growing team

Who you are:

  • Experience in management consulting and/or financial services
  • Strategic thinker who is data-driven and analytical in approach to solving problems
  • Good listener with strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Relationship builder who excels at developing relationships based on trust
  • Systems and process-thinker who loves creating order out of chaos
  • Fast learner who quickly gets smart about a new context, industry, or set of requirements
  • Skilled manager who invests in helping direct reports and colleagues succeed
  • Interested in learning from feedback and dedicated to improving your skills

Why you’ll love us:

  • We’ve got the energy and passion of a startup combined with the professionalism of a financial services firm and the compassion of mission-driven organization that truly cares about the people we serve.
  • We offer competitive salary packages, Health, Dental & Vision coverage, flexible working hours, early-stage equity, and an awesome vacation package.
  • Our customers are not only grateful but are the absolute best. We have the privilege of providing financial protection for vulnerable members of society and partnering with expert service providers to do so. Our customers and partners  love us and we love them back. You can sleep soundly every night knowing you are doing a really wonderful thing by getting our services into more hands.
  • We treat each other like we treat our customers: with 100% respect and dignity. Diversity and inclusion are cultural values we take very seriously and welcome team members of all backgrounds and identities.
  • Our office is dog friendly, full of snacks, catered lunch, and friendly, caring people.
