Full-Time New York, NY, USA Closes: 2020-04-20

Novo is a business banking platform built for today’s business owners. Since launch, thousands of freelancers, startup founders, and small business owners alike have been opening business checking accounts securely and easily, with no minimum balance requirements or monthly fees.

We’re building a product that helps businesses manage their cash flow, so they can focus on their actual business. Whether it’s finding ways to move money faster, or make the everyday experience friendlier and easier, we’re focused on making banking a better experience. Our long-term vision is to build a platform for businesses that plugs into everything, removing the lock-in that most banking services ultimately force.

Working at Novo
Novo is powered by some of the brightest minds, from tech to financial services, and we’re all working toward one goal: changing the way businesses bank – everywhere. We’re a group of passionate individuals that care about helping small businesses succeed. We currently have offices in NYC and India.

The entrepreneurial mindset is part of our DNA, and we’re building a culture of innovation and transparency to rebuild the bank stack from the inside.
