Manager, Accounting - United Income

About United Income:

United Income is a financial technology company, headquartered in Washington, DC, that was recently acquired by Capital One. We combine the latest technology with time-tested wisdom to better understand the interconnectedness of our financial lives, allowing us to lower client's taxes, boost retirement benefits, and improve the quality of investment management.

As of May 2019, we have over $780 million of assets under management, 99 percent client retention, and 88 percent of clients have had their fees reduced (since our technology lowers our operating costs, which we share with our clients). We've attracted over 200 media stories about the company's wealth-building innovations and thought leadership, including a Forbes article that said we have "an all-star team." We are united in our mission to use new technology to increase the financial potential of our customers in ways that have not been possible in the past.

That's where you come in. We want the best and the brightest. Work is more fun when you know that you're surrounded by people who are as dedicated as you are.

Our goals are simple:

Create the best financial planning and money management solution in the world;

Create a culture that is ambitious, fun, smart, and attracts and retains the best talent in each of our major areas of business;

Meaningfully and measurably improve the financial lives of aging households.
