Company Description

M1 is an early-stage, rapidly growing company revolutionizing personal finance.

Our core product is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, free investing platform. Anyone can easily create and automate their investments, borrow against a flexible portfolio line of credit, and soon, use M1 as their bank -- creating a finance experience that is totally new and incredibly exciting. There has never been an easier, more convenient, or less expensive way to control all aspects of your finances.

We manage hundreds of millions of dollars on our platform and are signing up thousands of new customers each week. But we are not done! We have ambitious plans to take on an entrenched, aging industry and bring wealth creation to everybody. Join us, and help build the future of personal finance.

Job Description

M1 seeks an IT professional or DevOps engineer looking to take the next step in their career: an energetic, enthusiastic, optimistic candidate searching for a smaller organization where they can try on many different hats, create and manage new processes, and grow with us to become a manager in their own right. The individual we seek will be a T-shaped generalist with knowledge of many different parts of infrastructure and information technology, excited to deepen their knowledge of every part of the DevOps stack while equally happy to help troubleshoot Windows networking issues.

At M1, we value diversity and foster a positive, creative work environment. We seek individuals who want to enable each others' best contributions, are willing to take an active yet compassionate role in helping guide the vision of our business, and aren't afraid to become an integral component of our company. And in helping us take our business to the next level, we will do the same for your career.
