DENVER CO (STL.News) Finder, an Australian fintech company that provides users with an app-based financial comparison tool for making decisions about personal purchases, has selected Colorado as its second US hub. Finder’s new greater Denver area hub, which will be leveraged as they scale up, will house 198 net new jobs that include product managers, software engineers, and app developers.
Finder’s Colorado operation marks the continued trend of increased foreign direct investment from Australia and joins fellow Australian companies Propeller Aero and Cochlear that have elected to call Colorado home.
“Colorado’s economy is roaring back and we are a tech hub that companies continue to flock to,” said Governor Jared Polis. “These new Colorado jobs highlight the high-demand for Colorado’s talent and expand opportunity for our urban and rural workforce alike.”
As part of its Colorado project, Finder has embraced Colorado’s location-neutral employment (LONE) initiative and projects up to 74 of its new employees will work remotely from Colorado’s LONE Worker-eligible counties. Finder currently employs nearly 200 remote workers outside of the US and is experienced in managing a remote workforce.
“It’s a really exciting time in Finder’s history as we scale to become the most useful and valuable personal finance platform for consumers,” said Finder USA CEO Don Ross. “Now more than ever, there’s a demand from our customers to develop a deeper understanding of their finances and find valuable ways to both save money and create wealth.”
Finder’s US expansion will help America’s 328 million people make informed financial decisions surrounding America’s $906B credit card debt. Via Finder’s award-winning and highly trafficked website, Finder helps more than 10 million monthly consumers around the world compare products online across more than 200 categories, including credit cards, home loans, bank accounts, insurance products, telecommunications, energy plans and shopping deals. Since its launch in 2006, Finder has transformed from a tech startup into an international service that operates in more than 80 countries.
