Harboring a deep love of technology from a young age, Sarah split her college years studying English literature and working at the Apple Store. After graduation, she worked at a small financial startup on the Tech Support Team, becoming a project manager there, before embarking on a quest for a small-building startup, which led to NextCapital.
Sarah’s days are often packed with meetings, as she works to plan projects, keep everything on track, and generally optimize internal processes. Striving to ensure small-scale tools and projects can be reused later as the company grows, Sarah has many exciting challenges at NextCapital, while still finding time to unwind with the company Book Club.
“Financial planning for your retirement is traditionally very buttoned-up and formal, but at NextCapital, we’re kind of pushing the boundaries of what it means to be in this space in a couple ways, both in the software we’re providing and in the culture around how we get things done. We have a sense of humor—we can wear jeans and still take our job seriously. It’s nice to see what we’re doing in this space and how we differ from our competitors in that way.”
“We’re growing really fast, and there’s a lot of opportunity for us to continue to make an impact in this space. It’s a very exciting time to be here. We’re hiring lots of people. and there’s lots of work to be done. It’s just a nice, energetic environment to be a part of.”
