Finance Associate

About Qapital

We are a team of designers, behavioral scientists and financial technologists on a mission to build a new retail bank from scratch, starting with an automated savings product that has already helped over a 300,000 users in the U.S. save over $350 million toward their goals. We recently launched a checking account, and have a pipeline of other banking services.

We work with Dan Ariely, our Chief Behavioral Economist, to create innovative tools that help people become masters of their financial lives. Tools that are useful to everyone, but accessible to anyone. Tools that give people control when they want it, and automation when they don’t. Tools that help people put their money towards what matters most.

We’re backed by top VCs including Northzone, Anthemis Group, Industrifonden and Inbox Capital.
