Full Job Description
Varo is on a mission to empower hard-working Americans to achieve greater financial resilience; arming them with the products and support they need to create healthy financial habits and reduce financial stress. Through its mobile app, Varo offers customers premium bank accounts that have no minimum balance requirement or monthly account fees, high-interest savings accounts, and solutions to build, repair, and access credit. Varo’s state of the art technology provides tech-first features to help people achieve their financial goals and manage their money more easily.
Varo is distinct from other fintechs: Varo is the first fintech to be granted preliminary approval for a de novo national bank charter by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the first to receive approval from the FDIC for federal deposit insurance, and is weeks away from opening the first mobile-centric national bank in U.S. history. Our unique team combines the best of tech and banking, and we’re wildly passionate about keeping our customers happy by helping them manage and grow their money. Our teams are based in San Francisco and Salt Lake City. Privately held Varo has raised over $400M to date, from leading institutional investors and strategic partners including Warburg Pincus, The Rise Fund / TPG Growth, Gallatin Point Capital, Harbourvest Partners, Progressive Insurance, and iHeartMedia.
