Help us help others build better financial lives.

Our mission

We believe everyone should have the ability to improve their financial future.

We exist to enable people to build credit, build savings, and reach their goals.

Our commitment to inclusion

We want you to Be Your Authentic Self at work. We recognize that fulfilling that core value begins with creating an environment that makes every individual feel represented, empowered, included, respected, supported and valued.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Program

Self values the unique perspectives and ideas of each of our employees. Our DEI program focuses on shared experiences around education, having a community to call on when you need support, building allyship, sharing our unique and shared stories in a safe place and simply having fun together!

Employee Resource Groups

Employee resource groups (ERGs) support, promote and celebrate groups of employees who come together around shared characteristics or life experiences. They also organize fun and engaging special events for the company that both educate and celebrate culture.

Welcome to the future of what finance should look like.
