An Insider's view of Affirm

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I was originally based in our San Francisco office and recently transitioned to our NYC office. I love the NYC office because it feels like a true start-up! I get the best of both worlds. A growing start-up with infrastructure and stability but with the excitement of a small office and team.

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned that staying true to Affirm's consumer-first mission requires a nearly daily commitment to it from the whole company with respect to how decisions are made, which goals are set, & what we decide to build. Sharing this clear north star with my coworkers allows us to connect & align on a deeper level - we're all here for the same reason.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The New York office combines the tight knit, friendly culture of a smaller startup start up with the huge projects of a scaled out company, all while located in the heart of the world's best city. People in NYC are generally hard working, laid back, and fun to talk to.
