    Ready to make a difference?

    Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.

    While traditional credit cards charge compounding interest and late fees, we show you up front exactly what you’ll owe—with no hidden fees and no surprises. And through advanced technology and analytics that look beyond traditional FICO scores, we’re able to serve a much broader population than anyone else in the space.

    We’re growing fast and hiring smart, curious people to help us revolutionize the banking industry and make it more accountable, accessible, and human. If you’re ready to make a difference, join us.

    Work with people who bring out the best in you

    Affirmers come together from a diverse set of backgrounds to make financial services more inclusive, honest, and meaningful. We’re passionate about making as much positive change as we can in our customers’ lives.

    Success means all hands are on deck—from engineering to sales to operations. We collaborate company-wide, challenging one another to bring our best ideas to every single project. Even as we grow, Affirm remains a tightly knit team where every perspective matters.

    Our Values:

    People come first

    We consider our impact on people’s lives before we think about our own interests.

    No fine print

    We are completely transparent and honest—with our customers and with each other.

    It’s on us

    We take full accountability for our actions, never shirking responsibility or passing the buck.

    Simpler is better

    We make complex things simple and clear.

    Push the envelope

    We never stop innovating, taking smart risks, and raising the bar.

    At Affirm, "People Come First" is a core value and that’s why diversity and inclusion are vital to our priorities as an equal opportunity employer. You can read about our D&I program here and our progress thus far in our 2019 D&I report.
