At Digit, we are on a mission to make financial health effortless for everyone. We are building the world’s first intelligent bank account to help millions of American consumers become financially healthy. Our challenge is clear: managing personal finances is hard.

An Insider's view of Digit

What are some social events your company does?

I joined Digit in Summer '19 before our annual retreat Camp Digit. I had a blast, and felt so lucky to be hanging out with such great people outside of work! We've had countless game nights, happy hours, outings and in-office hangs since then. I love how social we are and how our hangs don't feel obligatory--Digits hang out because they want to.

Clare

Recruiting Operations Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

From creating customer acquisition channels from scratch to building robust money movement systems that handle millions of dollars a day, our team is constantly facing hard problems. The best part about Digit is getting to solve these real customer problems with other smart, pragmatic, and just plain awesome people!

Brock

Engineering Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

I joined as a user researcher and had the chance to work cross-functionally right away. I’ve gotten to influence culture through workshops, kickstart our social media presence, and launch our credit card feature as a PM. Having opportunities to impact various areas of our work has been very rewarding & has allowed me to grow quickly at Digit.

Kristin

Product Manager

What is your vision for the company?

Imagine if you could trust that your money is going to the right places, automatically, based on your personal financial situation. Digit is inventing new experiences that will make financial health effortless. When we’re successful, tens of millions of people will spend more time doing what they love, and less on managing personal finances.
