Remote, freelance role (ideally converting to perm after we’ve gotten to know each other)

Be Money is an LGBT+ focused fintech company that aims to take the awkwardness out of traditional banking and transform the way that LGBT+ people thinks about their money. We believe in a world where being LGBT+ has no bearing on your financial wellbeing and have created Be Money to help us achieve that goal.

Our community has almost $1T spending power in the US and yet 53% of LGBT+ people struggle to maintain regular savings. Despite that, LGBT+ people have a wide and diverse range of goals that they need financial help to achieve, which include surrogacies, gender transitions, or even retiring in a queer-friendly beach town.

Our mission is to become the first LGBT+ checking account and investment platform that focuses on the financial empowerment of the whole community.

We want to bring specialist LGBT+ digital banking to life. Not with cheap gimmicks, but by empowering LGBT+ people to achieve their life goals though world-class digital banking.

And because all LGBT+ people deserve the chance to be their best selves, we’ll be investing a substantial part of our profits back into local projects targeting the most underprivileged LGBT+ people in our community.

We have completed our customer discovery and have a large corporate backer, so have funding to build our MVP build.

Be Money’s primary value is inclusiveness, which means that we aim to create a culture where everyone can belong and be their real authentic selves in the office. We welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives, though we have strict policies in place against homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia so you’ll need to be open-minded to work in our company. Also, racism sucks. Don’t be racist.
