Digit is the smartest way for anyone to prepare financially for life's needs, wants, surprises and dreams, without changing their daily behavior. This is important because managing personal finances is hard. 65% of Americans couldn’t come up with $2,000 in event of an emergency. National credit card debt is at a record high of over $1 trillion. Our mission is to make financial health effortless for everyone.

We are looking for experienced engineering leaders to help scale our engineering teams at Digit. Your role will primarily be people focused while driving our product, platform, or infrastructure teams. Engineering Management is a new function at Digit, and anyone joining us will have the opportunity to help define and shape the practice for us.
