Do you want to build a company from the ground up, own your work and make long-term financial planning available to people with various backgrounds?

Plutify is looking for a Front-end developer to join the company as a Co-founder!

About the company

Plutify aims to bring the knowledge and tools required to do accurate long-term financial planning into the hands of individuals regardless of their mathematical or economic background. To do this Plutify is creating a financial projection tool box based on historic trends and present data.

Plutify will specialize in smoothly onboarding users with various experience levels and growing the complexity of projections together with increasing the users’ confidence in their financial literacy. Our tool box users will be able to

1) intuitively input and analyze their information,

2) project their future finances, and

3) simulate different spending and saving scenarios and analyze possibilities.

This tool box will be accessible to users for free on our platform and as white labeled tools through other financial service providers.

During the past few months we’ve created a landing page with a simple projection calculator, ran a customer validation experiment, iterated our business plan, planned our MVP, and got accepted into the KTH Innovation Pre-incubator program.
