The Guide Financial Mission
We bring genuine and comprehensive advice and financial peace of mind to anyone, regardless of income level, through beautiful, understandable and powerful software.
Guide is like a health check for your finances – each week our software automatically scans all of your transactions, analyzes them for dozens of ways you can earn or save more, and helps you make fixes to get on the right path (from paying your debts in the right order to complex HSA/FSA choices, student loan planning, building an emergency fund, saving for retirement and more).
Guide was founded by entrepreneurs with deep finance and technology experience and passion for achieving massive social impact. Our CEO founded a microfinance fund at 21 and went on to several later ventures in the personal finance space after stints at McKinsey, Microsoft and Goldman Sachs. He is also a rails hacker - building out the current complex Guide product from scratch.
His cofounder comes from investment management, with a CFA charter and a focus on financial innovation in emerging markets.
Life at Guide Financial
We currently work from the Launchpad LA accelerator space in Santa Monica, California, but will be returning to a great office space in the Bay Area in July. With our seed-stage company you'll have the opportunity to build a product with massive impact and shape our technology as well as business strategy. Our team is highly collaborative and focused on building a fun work environment.
