WHO ARE WE?

Vestwell believes that all Americans should have easy access to a retirement account, which is why we’ve created a digital platform that makes it simpler to offer and administer 401(k) plans.  We have built a digital-first platform designed to reset the bar to power a $30T industry.  

Our focus is to build the most flexible, powerful workplace savings and investment platform, delivered through the hands and minds of our financial services partners with the help of payroll providers.  We make the hard stuff look easy, by combining the expertise of financial advice with the sophistication of a technology provider.   

As a result, financial advisors get to provide the advice and solution that employers and employees have been asking for, while growing and scaling along the way.  Employers get a cost-effective solution design for their needs without the headache, and employees get a user-friendly portal that helps them achieve their long-term saving goals.

 

WHY VESTWELL?

With backing from leading Fintech investors, as well as a growing team of dedicated professionals of strong industry pedigree, Vestwell is at the forefront of a much-needed change in a 40-yr old industry.  Our team believes in the mission we’ve set out to achieve and we’re working hard to get there. We’re ambitious, honest, thoughtful, and fun. 


OUR CULTURE

We take a modern Agile approach to web development, trusting cross-functional squads to make bottom up decisions in terms of roadmap prioritization, technical choices, and day-to-day processes.

We want squads to be first class citizens, working as a team to define their roadmap and prioritization, that follows best practices in development, automation testing, deploying, and support.


WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

The Engineering team is seeking an experienced Full Stack Engineer with 3-5+ years of experience, who can be effective on all levels of our application stack, and is willing to play all necessary roles such as architect, tech lead, code reviewer, Agile coach, and mentor.

In short, we want to bring experienced engineers in to make key decisions regarding technology, architecture, and culture.

You’re a great fit for our team if you can balance detail-oriented tasks with long term strategy and scale initiatives. Most of all, you must be passionate about what you create and about the impact it can have. That matters to us, a lot.

An Insider's view of Vestwell

What are some social events your company does?

Vestwell does a wide array of social events. Before COVID, some of my favorites included a day trip to a vineyard in upstate NY, the Engineering team outing to Barcade, and the company holiday party. Since we went remote, some of our virtual events have included trivia, a tour of the Musee d’Orsay, and a pasta-making tutorial.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I'm most impressed with the successful, enthusiastic collaboration that happens every day. In my role in Relationship Mgmt., I'm working with teams across Vestwell. I often bring unusual, time-sensitive, and high priority requests to my colleagues. I always hear "YES". "Yes, I can help.", "Yes, we can do this.", " Yes, we can figure this out".

We are building something that is truly going to help people by making it easier to save for retirement. It's a pleasure to work with such a talented, driven, fun team every day.
