Why join us?
  • We are motivated by a socially minded mission. 138 million people in America need access to credit. We have rejected the notion that these people should be ignored and denied access to capital, as we’ve seen so often at mainstream financial institutions, just because they lack the “right” credit score or paycheck. Instead, we believe in the “moral collateral” of people who work multiple jobs day and night to make ends meet. Our mission is to empower people to establish credit scores so they are free to make the financial decisions that are right for their families and their futures.

  • At Insikt, our mission is to empower our customers by providing the tools they need to accomplish their dreams. We strive to do the same for our team members. Here at Insikt, we are proud to employ a team that unites perspective with progress. It is our team of diverse and experienced professionals that drive us to hit our goals and push the boundaries that unlock future innovation. We are firm believers that this innovation comes only from passionate, creative, diverse people who genuinely believe in building a better world for all.

  • Insikt is growing and so is our platform. As we continue to expand our customer base we are faced with the exciting challenge of responsibly scaling our business and technology. We are builders and creative problem solvers. Whether it’s finding the right technology to support complex data needs, coming up with creative revenue models, or clever visual assets, our team focuses and commits because it’s the right thing to do for our customers, our business, and ourselves.
