Job Description

About Earnin:

Every year, while Americans wait for their paychecks, more than $1 trillion of their hard-earned money is held up in the pay cycle. As a result, they accumulate over $50 billion in late and overdraft fees and turn to high-interest loans.

Our financial system doesn’t work for people. But Earnin does.

Earnin is an app that lets people get paid the minute they leave work, with no fees, interest, or hidden costs. Users simply tip what they think is fair, and receive their money in their bank account instantly.

Earnin’s mission to build a financial system that works for people is supported by funding partners including Andreessen Horowitz, Matrix Partners, Ribbit Capital, Felicis Venture, Thrive Capital, and others.

Join us and help build a new financial system!
