About Us:

Piecewise is a student debt payment platform that universities and financial institutions use to lower student loan default rates. We’re student debt borrowers ourselves that are dedicated to designing products around the financial realities of millions of Americans. We’re driven by the 1 in 5 American households with zero or negative net worth and are using powerful product design and data to remove barriers to accretive wealth.

We’ve built the first API that programmatically connects to student loan servicers and we’re doing pioneering work with variable income data. We’re post-launch and post-revenue. We’ve nailed product-market fit and are hiring to keep up with the demand. We’re VC-backed and growing quickly.
