Our Team

Our culture is all about building something important together.

We're here because we care. We believe that Trim is making the world a better place, slowly but surely. We believe that the scale of the internet can allow us to improve Americans' financial health in ways that weren't possible before.

We're also here because of each other. Our team is still pretty small, and we've gotten to know each other pretty well. Every person has a lot of responsibility. Every person, every day, moves the company ahead a little bit. Every person makes mistakes (and we think that's a good thing). We value hard work, honesty, and a good sense of humor.

We're hiring! If you're interested, please email us directly to jump-start the process.
