Chief Financial Officer
Unit is building the platform to power the next generation of financial services. Our mission is to help companies expand financial access for all. Our simple and powerful banking-as-a-service API helps companies launch bank accounts, cards, payments, and lending in weeks - not years.
Unit was founded by a team with deep fintech and financial services experience and the first banking-as-a-service platform to reach unicorn status. We have raised over $169 million to date from top investors including Insight Partners, Accel, Better Tomorrow Ventures, Aleph, and Flourish and serve 140+ customers including AngelList, Honeybook, Roofstock, and many more.
3.5 years after launch, we’re serving 150+ customers, generating 8 digits in revenues from diverse revenue streams and growing fast. We believe that this is just the beginning: as more financial services make their way into software in the next 5-10 years, we believe that Unit has a tremendous market opportunity ahead of it.

Partner with the leadership and board on planning, tracking and improving financial results and KPIs, with all stakeholders in mind: clients, partner banks and vendors.
