M1's Commitment to Diversity 

M1 is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate different experiences and we're committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) at all levels of the company. Women, minorities, veterans, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and individuals with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Our Values 

Our team embodies our ten core principles and if these principles speak to you – we’d love to talk with you. 

  • Mission Driven - We know that financial well-being has a dramatic impact on an individual's quality of life. We are passionate about helping people in this domain. 
  • Extreme Ownership - We are responsible for the results to our clients, teammates, and shareholders. We own everything in our domain that affects these results. 
  • Boldness - Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Thinking big inspire results. We would rather fail at the meaningful than succeed at the trivial. 
  • Ruthless Prioritization - We want to do more than we possibly can. We must be disciplined on how to use our precious money, people, and time. That means saying no to a lot of good ideas so we can focus on the most important thing. 
  • Integrity - We do the right thing. This trust must never be broken. 
  • Effectiveness - We do what's needed to deliver the intended results. Whether that requires disciplined process or scrappy implementation, we find a way. 
  • Team Oriented - We work collaboratively to achieve more. We respect, trust, and support one another. 
  • Transparency - We use simple and clear communication to share information so that people have the context to make good decisions. 
  • Make Forward Progress - Something is better than nothing. We make incremental improvements on our path towards perfection. Crawl, walk, run, and then sprint. 
  • Resiliency - We understand that any big goal comes with ambiguity, change, and setbacks. We adapt and keep going. 

Our Perks 

  • Competitive Pay and Stock Options 
  • Comprehensive health, dental, vision, disability, and life insurance
