About Fruitful

Fruitful is fixing personal finance. We started with a product that gives members a path to financial confidence via 1-on-1 guidance from CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER TM professionals, access to an industry-leading 5% high yield savings account, along with a tailored investment management platform. This was the first step towards a larger vision to be a paradigm-shifting leader in the personal finance ecosystem.

As a next step, we’ll be launching an industry changing money management and credit product.  Fruitful has the opportunity to be more affordable, accessible, and comprehensive than anyone in the industry, and it starts with a world-class product… Ready to help us build it?

Financial Guidance @ Fruitful

We are looking for a dynamic Certified Financial Planner that wants to join an early-stage, mission-driven company to drive direct positive impact for our members. You will:

  • Work directly with members 1:1 to guide them through financial planning topics, give clear, actionable takeaways in each discussion, and help ensure they make progress towards financial confidence and wellness
  • Common topics include but are not limited to: money management, savings, debt paydown, student loans, retirement planning, investing, buying a house, self employment, combining finances, starting a family, equity compensation, saving for college (the list goes on!)
  • Leverage your experience, knowledge, and service orientation to engage effectively with members, responding to questions, gaining an understanding of their unique circumstances, building relationships, providing tailored guidance, and leading them toward positive financial outcomes and increased financial understanding
  • Interface directly with Product, Operations, Strategy, and Banking team leads, lending your expertise and collaboratively working to create a best-in-class member experience framework
  • Assist in crafting helpful member-facing content
  • What you won’t have to worry about: being your own compliance officer, hunting down new clients, managing investment portfolios, misaligned incentives (like commissions), selling any products, or managing a tech stack on your own. Just show up and do what you do best - help people with their money!
