What efforts are you making in terms of increasing diversity & inclusion within your company?

Chime was created because we believe that everyone deserves financial peace of mind, and that’s why build our teams around the idea of 'everyone.' To that end, we put diversity of thought first by welcoming the perspectives and life experiences of all people. We proactively ​seek out​ diverse ideas, experiences, and skillsets when adding talent to our teams.

We know that to achieve a diverse team and inclusive environment, leadership buy-in is essential; we're fortunate to have a leadership team that champions our growth around D&I at Chime. Our leaders are committed to creating an inclusive workforce with belonging as the guiding principle. They—and we—know that it's only with a commitment to belonging that we can help every Chimer achieve professional growth, find individual freedom, and continue to innovate, all of which positively impact our team and the people we serve, our members.

After all, our focus is on our members and achieving our mission (one of our company values is to be member-obsessed!). Our team builds products and provides services for people from all walks of life, regardless of their financial standing—which makes Chime a unique opportunity in tech. Our hope is never to profit from our members but to profit with them. So instead of catering to the elite or a select audience, we're building Chime for everyone. The only way we'll ever succeed at doing so is if our team represents the members we serve.
