Stockpile was born when its founder tried to give Christmas gifts of stock to his nieces and nephews—but the whole process was such a hassle that he gave up. However, the idea stuck, and today, stores like Safeway or Target sell Stockpile gift cards. The team comes from blue-chip consumer-facing companies, and they're always looking for new members to build groundbreaking products in a lean team with a transparent, collaborative culture.
Stockpile makes it easy and affordable for anyone to own stock in their favorite companies, or give a gift of stock to family and friends. Customers can invest in Apple, Disney, Facebook, or a thousand other stocks, and own fractional shares of real stock in a real brokerage account. The company's mission is financial inclusion and empowerment, so people of any age, gender, and income level can finally have a shot at investing.
