Technical Recruiter

| Chicago

Company Description

M1 is reinventing personal finance and creating the next generation financial institution. We believe the current tools used to invest, borrow, and spend your money are woefully outdated and overpriced. That’s why we’re rethinking what’s possible with new technology and building the tools to empower people to make the most of their money.

We started by building a beautiful, one-of-a-kind automated investing platform. People can easily customize and automate their investments, borrow against a portfolio line of credit, and soon, use M1 as their bank – creating the next generation personal finance account. There has never been an easier, more convenient, or less expensive way to manage your money.

Headquartered in Chicago, we’re rapidly growing and currently manage over half a billion dollars with hundreds of thousands of users. But we are not done. We’re just getting started and have ambitious plans to take on an entrenched industry. Join us and help build the future of personal finance.
