Who we are 

M1 Finance has created a personal wealth-building platform made for the modern era, uniting personal perspective and automated ease. We seamlessly combine free investing, low cost borrowing and digital checking all in one intuitive, automated Finance Super App, and we’re driven by a mission to empower personal financial well-being. We believe that financial well-being is fundamental to overall well-being, and we strive to deliver products that are simpler, smarter, and stronger than those created by our staid, boring, entrenched, slow-moving competitors in the personal finance industry.   

Our clients have already trusted us with over $3 billion of assets, we’re currently helping more than 500,000 people grow and manage their wealth with our industry-leading automation and tools, and we’re adding thousands of new clients every day.  

We’re looking for passionate people who want to improve and build on what we’ve created and take responsibility to help others build something meaningful and sustainable for their futures.   

We mean it when we say, “M1 is yours to build.” 

If this sounds interesting to you, we’d love to have you read on. 

What we’re looking for 

We're looking for experienced product designers to collaborate with our team on the exploration, strategy, and design of flows for our iOS, Android, and web applications. The right person will use their user-centered perspective to solve design problems holistically and systematically, while moving rapidly and attentively to deliver solutions for implementation. As part of the design team, you'll be heavily involved in shaping our design practice in terms of research, prototyping, workflow, and implementation. Everybody who joins our team is given space to lead and demonstrate their own expertise, so we would ask that you also embody the same self-motivated and growth-minded entrepreneurial spirit. If you’re the kind of designer who enjoys improving design ops, designing for scale and complexity, and rethinking consumer financial digital experiences — then we’d love to talk to you.

  • Help manage and maintain our design system
  • Help refine our design process from discovery to implementation
  • Grow our budding user research practice

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, and inclusion (DEI) at all levels of the company. Women, minorities, veterans, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and individuals with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. With our three DEI task forces (internal education, recruiting, and community involvement), M1 employees and leaders set aside company time to tackle DEI projects and achieve goals every quarter. 

Our Values 

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

  • Mission Driven: We will passionately apply ourselves to deliver immense value to our customers, knowing if they succeed, so too will the company. 
  • Extreme Ownership: We think and act like owners. Our focus is on building long-term value, not scoring short-term marks. We own everything in our domain, including the outcome and everything that affects it. 
  • Boldness: We want to do things of consequence. Make a difference. We would rather fail at something meaningful than succeed at something trivial. 
  • Bias for action: The best way to make progress is to act.
  • Economical: Efficiency is important, and we consider both the costs and benefits of our actions. 
  • Team-oriented: In working together, we maintain a low ego, make everyone feel welcome, assume good intent, trust one another, and seek out different perspectives. We empower our teammates to be at their best.  
  • Challenged, but not overwhelmed: We are curious people who always want to grow. Growth happens outside our comfort zone. We achieve our potential through consistent, manageable growth. 
  • Integrity: We do the right thing. When we make mistakes, we own and correct them. We would be proud of our actions are shared with our family, friends, and strangers. Everyone can count on us to act according to our values, beliefs, and principles we state we hold. This trust must never be broken.
