At WayWiser, we come to work every day because we want to solve one of the biggest problems impacting older adults: protecting their financial independence and keeping their dignity as they age.
Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation control 80% of the US wealth. In the next decade, the entire Baby Boomer generation will reach 65+. Together this has created a perfect storm for exploitation. To make matters worse, Covid-19 and stay-at-home orders have isolated older adults making them even more susceptible to targets of fraud.
We are a mission-driven company. Many members of our team have experienced an older loved one get scammed or exploited. We believe it takes a community to support an older adult and we understand each person has their own unique challenges.
WayWiser makes it easier for older adults to get connected and stay protected by offering a comprehensive platform focused on bringing families together and helping them maintain their independence and freedom.
We are an Austin-based but fully remote company that fosters a one team, one goal growth mindset when it comes to developing our product and cultivating company culture amongst WayWiser team members.
We believe in a lifestyle-work balance so provide unlimited PTO and flexible work hours. We cover 100% of an employee’s premium for medical, dental, and vision coverage. We offer a 401(k) plan and stock options. Throughout the year, we host all-staff strategy meetings in Austin to ensure that our team members have the chance for in-person interaction and collaborative team building activities.
We leave our egos at the door and always focus on getting to an answer quickly and doing what is right for the customer and the company. You will have an opportunity to make an impact on thousands of lives.
