What we do
Fizz is a debit card that builds credit and helps students save money on campus. Starting by changing the way students build credit, our vision is to become the financial ally for young adults.
Who we are
We are a diverse, determined and very young founding team looking to leave a dent, make credit building safe and simple, and build a generational company.

What we are looking for in a teammate
As an early seed stage startup we believe that the first hires will the determining factor for the outcome and our success in working towards our mission. Just like oneself becomes the product of one's five closest friends, Fizz will become the product of its earliest team members.
We're looking for people who've gone demonstrably deep on things they care about (read: passion projects or things you've built/created before), find fun in a challenge, don't wait to take action, and prize ownership on their journey to turn their work into brilliance.
Working at fizz
We believe in flexibility. Everyone works hard differently. We want to provide our team with the environment and flexibility to succeed and grow.
We work collaboratively, and are straight with feedback amongst and across everyone in the team. We try hard to keep intellectual honesty, challenge each other’s assumption and make decisions based on verifiable hypotheses we can test through data.
The foundation of Fizz was built with the founders and initial team members living, cooking, and laughing and together. We like being around each other, whether it is over lunch, exploring our surroundings, learning from team members, or delving into debates on philosophy, math, management theory, and nitty gritty business details. Bring yourself to work, and you will be guaranteed to laugh everyday!
