An Insider's view of Aspiration

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Aspiration has some of the smartest, most hard-working, and fun people I have ever worked with. The vibe is very fast-paced and exciting, and management is good at adjusting to different people’s work styles, allowing employees to work remotely and even bring their pups in on Fridays.


Data Analyst

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We use cutting edge technology to solve both dated financial problems and problems that impact our environment. Aspiration is unique in that we are a financial firm focused on environmentalism while putting people before profits. For every solution we have to a banking problem, we're challenged with having an equal or greater impact on the world.


Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

I joined Aspiration as an Account Manager. Now, I manage an affiliate program of 80+ accounts and support our direct media partners. In 1 year, I've grown beyond my own expectations. From leading a large product implementation to planning off-site activation events, my need of not being in a complacent position has been met from the moment I joined
