NerdWallet

NerdWallet offers financial recommendations you can trust (and we’re hiring!)

The amount of financial information on the internet is overwhelming. Our founders Tim and Jake believe in creating resources that consumers can trust.

As nerds, we stand by our commitment to build tools and deliver information and recommendations that are:

  • Clear: Our tools are user-friendly and straightforward, so you save time.

  • Transparent: We use a numbers-based, analytic approach to give you fair and objective results.

  • Personalized: We customize results based on you and how you spend money.

  • Complete: Some sites only list products or services that earn them money. We include everything we can get our hands on.

Tools that answer real questions

With these ideals, NerdWallet empowers consumers to make better decisions about their personal finances, from credit cards and travel plans to health insurance and higher education.

Focused on the customer

We think of ourselves as the first ‘.org’ recommendation site – we never sacrifice user welfare in the name of profits.

Bootstrapped and growing

We are able to make this commitment because we aren’t shackled to outside investors or stakeholders who don’t believe in our mission. But we’re still profitable, and growing.

Want to help us make the financial world a better place? Join the Nerd team!
