Solve Real Problems for Real People

Technology for All

At Propel, we believe everyone deserves access to user-friendly technology that improves their lives. We focus on empowering low-income Americans by simplifying navigating the complexities of the safety net and uncovering other opportunities to strengthen their financial well-being. We're not just building a product, we're helping pave the way for a more inclusive tech landscape. Join us as we create a model for other companies to follow.
 

Unique Challenge, Rewarding Impact

Our mission inherently makes achieving a profitable and sustainable business much more challenging. There is no playbook for what we’re trying to do. We must drive sustainable revenue through building multiple strong and profitable business offerings that serve the unique needs of low income Americans. Ultimately, though, when you wrap your day, you’ll do so knowing you are focusing your talents on solving complex systemic issues impacting real people. Your work matters – a lot.

Our values

Mission-Driven Excellence

Let's be honest: it'll take an extraordinary effort to make a dent on poverty in America. We hold ourselves to a very high standard - which translates into detail orientation, precise communication, and world class speed.

Progress over Perfect

The mission is too big to solve all at once, but we take pride in progress. Long term success requires both focus and a willingness to increment and learn.

Listen First

We approach our work with humility and the acknowledgement that there's a lot we don't know. We don't pity or look down on low-income families - instead, we take inspiration from their resilience and ensure that they have a seat at the table.

Propel Each Other

We value the work that includes and accelerates others. The success of those around you is your success. We celebrate our wins together and we learn from our mistakes together.

Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity

At Propel, we're building a culture of inclusion and empowerment. We believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity, regardless of their background. This translates not just within our team, but also in the impact we want our product to have.


Our product tackles real-world challenges faced by millions of users from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. We understand the tech industry hasn't always excelled at inclusivity, and we're committed to doing better and building towards a team that reflects the diversity of our user base. 


Building a diverse team isn't just the right thing to do, it's essential. We particularly welcome those with lived experiences that reflect our users to apply. A team that reflects the people we serve allows us to create solutions that truly resonate. That's why we actively work towards creating inclusive hiring practices and fostering an environment where everyone feels valued for their unique perspective.


We're a growing company, and achieving a truly representative team takes time. But we're committed to the journey, and we're actively working to ensure fair and equitable processes for everyone – from hiring and compensation decisions to growth and promotion opportunities.

Benefits & Perks

Meaningful work

You aren’t just building a widget, software for businesses to increase profits, or a game for people to play on the subway. You are helping low income Americans get through the month, every month. At the end of a busy day, you can feel good about where you are investing your skills and time.

Competitive Total Compensation Package 

Pay is important so we offer holistic, competitive total compensation packages. We build our salary bands with the 75th percentile of companies like us in mind. We provide equity packages that match the level of impact we expect in the role. We also provide excellent benefits to support employee’s lives beyond the workplace.

Work with the best people

Propellers share a passion for serving our users. As a result, we’ve assembled a team of talented, kind and collaborative people. Working here, you’ll be surrounded by great people who bring out the best in each other.  

Generous vacation policy

20 vacation days. These days are meant for trips, vacations, time with family, etc. You have our support to be off the map, unconnected and unavailable.

16 week parental leave

You can take them flexibly over the first year (in collaboration with manager).

Healthcare and a 401k

We’ve got your medical, dental, and vision - we cover up to 99% of the premium. We offer 401K plans with up to 4% employer match. 

Remote first

Work wherever you’re happiest. We have offices in Brooklyn, Salt Lake City and San Francisco, but we’re remote-first, with team members located across the country. We bring everyone together 1-2 times a year. 

Grow with us

We’re small enough that Every. Single. Role. has a huge impact on our business and success. Growth may not always look like the structured linear plan at larger companies, but there are countless ways to expand your skills and career at Propel. 

Bring your dog to work! Here at Propel, dogs are more than welcome as long as they aren’t disruptive to the work environment.

Our mission is core to our ethos as a company so that resonated with me when I joined. While we love data, we’re not just about the bottom line, so an empathetic spirit and an open mind to different perspectives or lived experiences is key to helping us build a great product and a great team.
