Product Manager - Pulse

On a mission to help every small business succeed

We believe small businesses make the world go round. They create jobs, build communities, are the core of our economy, and enrich our culture. But it’s too hard; they are not just expected to be passionate, hardworking entrepreneurs. They are also expected to quickly understand the complexities of their financial data to make crucial business decisions every day.

We are here to do the difficult task of simplifying this problem. We are using data science combined with an amazing user experience to empower every small business make better business decisions.

We are combining the pace and entrepreneurial spirit of a technology start-up with the backing of a 150-year-old institution.

We want to be known for helping every small business succeed. Interested?
