Our Mission

Simply Wall St exists to enable individuals to succeed at stock investing and achieve their financial goals. The stock market offers an exceptional opportunity for wealth-building, but many fail. It's tempting to try and rush it, to get rich quick, however, it’s much better (and easier) to think in decades, not months, and imagine becoming a shareholder in a business.

Why Join?

- Help us empower individuals by giving them a new way to invest in stocks;

- Work at a profitable, global, B2C SaaS startup;

- Operating at scale with 6.5 million users, across 180 countries;

- Small team and flexible working environment;

- Work with a product customers love: 4.5* Trustpilot Reviews;

- Strong employee retention with 70% of the team with us for >2 years.
