Company overview:

Clerkie is a dedicated financial coach that has helped over 3M Americans achieve their financial goals. Our platform couples access to dedicated human financial specialists with a series of innovative, proprietary tools that automatically negotiate outstanding debts, including student loans, credit cards, and medical debts, and help people on their journey to financial stability.

Clerkie was founded in 2016 and is venture-backed by leading financial institutions like Citi, Flourish Ventures, and Vestigo Ventures.


Every day, we obsess about how we can provide the best possible experience and outcome for our users. Our goal is to create a lasting business, one that uses true innovation to rethink the financial journey for Americans.

We’re a group of hard-working professionals who are located across the US - 4 different time zones! We have a customer-first mindset and an appetite for getting stuff done. We’re looking for a superstar Product Designer to help us deliver life-changing solutions to those who need them most. 💪

What we look for:

  • You have a “can do” attitude. Our teams create high-quality work on quick timelines. Owning a problem doesn’t scare you, but rather empowers you to take 100% responsibility for achieving our mission.
  • You’ve got positive energy. You’re optimistic about the future and determined to get there.
  • You’re never tired of learning.
  • You appreciate direct communication and look for feedback. You’re both an active communicator and an eager listener.

Why work for us:

  • Competitive salary + equity
  • Top-notch medical, dental, and vision
  • 401k & retirement benefits
  • Fully remote position
  • Fantastic coworkers
  • Annual destination company retreat (this year is Cabo San Lucas)
  • You’ll have the opportunity to see how all aspects of the business operate and have the chance to be a part of a startup from the very beginning.
