Who we are:
Northstar is a fintech company that enables employers to offer financial wellness, compensation, and benefits advice as a benefit. Northstar supports employees' key financial decisions through 1-on-1 CFPs® and innovative financial management tools.
Northstar has raised more than $10M from M13, Foundation Capital, Workday Ventures, Parade Ventures, and top founders and executives at NerdWallet, Plaid, Adobe, Amazon, SunRun, and Yelp. We’ve thoughtfully brought together a syndicate of investors across different backgrounds and experiences. Northstar's vision lives at the intersection of fintech, HR tech, financial advising, enterprise sales, and consumer product.
Our customers include leading employers like Zoom, ServiceTitan, Thumbtack, Invitae, and Medium.
We're most importantly looking for people who are excited about our vision and mission. We're redefining the category of financial wellness, and have passionate customers who can vouch for this.
