An Insider's view of Halo Investing

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I have always appreciated that Halo promotes a creative and family culture where people really care about each other personally and individually. Halo has always offered me the freedom to think outside of the box with enough time to do things the right way.

Matt Schoen

Product Development Lead

What does your typical day look like?

My day starts with a daily check-in with the product/development team. While changes daily, I'm supporting our developers facing blockers and checking in on ongoing projects.

As a largely remote-first team, the level of communication and fun we have is amazing! On Fridays, we have (zoom) happy hour and play games chosen by a rotating host.

Viviana Rishe

Scrum/Agile Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

It starts with embracing the culture. Staying hungry and carrying a willingness to learn or contribute where there's a need, not only if asked to do so. Because we are so close as a team, we all want to work hard for each other.

Matt Rosenberg

Head of Customer Success

What is your vision for the company?

Halo is bringing accessibility to uniquely powerful investments which can increase confidence and security for investors all over the world.

Our motto is "impact before profits" and we live by that every day.

It's about doing something that's bigger than ourselves. It’s about challenging the status quo and changing the world for the better.

Jason Barsema

President and Co-Founder

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Halo operates a relatively flat organization. Any ideas to improve our product, a new initiative, or client experience are always welcomed. Working with clients on a daily basis, I regularly present welcomed feedback to the product team to help shape the direction of Halo's technology.

Jeremy Popper

Regional Vice President, Sales
