At This Company, Collaboration Is Just as Important as Ownership
You’ve heard of the 401(k) (we hope). Well, NextCapital is the first company to build an automated 401(k) finance system. Since its launch in 1997, the company has been a leading provider of financial accounts services and investor portfolio management solutions. NextCapital is committed to placing each client’s financial future in their own hands—by sharing both personalized expert advice and software services built for securing retirement plans and investments.
A defining aspect of NextCapital’s culture is the constant collaboration between teams. According to employees from different departments, being cubicle-free and communication-ready makes finding the right solutions and getting instant feedback a simple process. “We’ve got people in different roles, all who communicate with each other daily,” says software engineer Alex Lang, “You have engineers talking to other engineers, engineers talking to designers and managers, and the same holds true for designers and managers.”
Apart from teamwork, individual ownership is highly valued at NextCapital. Lang loves that employees start with tackling small tasks that build their confidence and transition to taking on tasks all by themselves with minimal input from others. According to the software engineer, each worker gets to own his or her assignments and own features of the company app.
If you’re looking for a teamwork-heavy environment where you’ll still be encouraged to leave your own mark, then NextCapital is the place to be.
