    Affirm is a remote-first company! The majority of our roles can be based anywhere in the U.S. or Canada (with the exception of Quebec). Our offices in San Francisco, New York City, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Salt Lake City will remain operational and accessible for anyone to use on a voluntary basis.

    Ready to make a difference?

    Affirm empowers people to say yes to more of the things they love.

    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.

    Pushing the envelope together: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in 2020

    When we released our DEI Report last year, one of our primary goals was to improve the sense of belonging of all Affirmers- including women and members of the African American/Black, Hispanic/Latinx, and LGBTQ+ communities. We responded to 2020's extraordinary circumstances by providing employees with thought-provoking events to increase visibility and foster dialogue about the BIPOC experience in the U.S. In keeping with our core value of people come first, we also radically invented the way we work with an award-winning remote-first experience.

    Compensation and retirement

    We’ve created a simple and flexible compensation structure to ensure that employees can make the best decisions for themselves and their families. Our new compensation structure aligns to a state’s highest paid major city, metro, or state average, determined by using cost of labor data.

    Health and wellness

    We advocate for and support a balanced healthy life, and will continue to offer three generous health plans. Our dental coverage remains 100% covered by Affirm, with an optional enhancements. We also continue to provide vision, life, and disability insurance for Affirmers and their dependents.
