Brooklyn, NY, USA · Remote
Posted on Saturday, September 9, 2023

We believe that Americans with limited income deserve modern, respectful, and effective experiences around their government benefits and money. Unfortunately, the status quo often fails to treat them as first-class citizens in their daily interactions around the social safety net and financial services.

Propel’s mission is to change that. We’ve built Providers, the most popular app in the country built specifically for low-income Americans. Over 5 million families each month use Providers to seamlessly manage their government benefits (programs like SNAP, commonly known as food stamps), conduct their banking, and save and earn money. Providers has been recognized by the White House, featured on the front page of the NYTimes, and carries over 500,000 five star reviews.

Providers works with advertising partners to help our users find new ways to save money and earn income. We’re looking for a Business Analyst to support the business operations and strategy for Providers. You will be responsible for executing and improving key day-to-day operations of our advertising business. You’ll also work directly with team leaders across an array of projects and functions in a fast-moving start-up environment.

Propel is a for-profit, venture-backed company that holds its social mission at its core. Our investors include Andreessen Horowitz, Nyca Partners, Financial Health Network, JPMorganChase, Kevin Durant, Serena Williams, and Nas.

We're an equal opportunity employer and are strongly committed to hiring a diverse team. We encourage applications from those with traditionally underrepresented backgrounds, and we particularly value lived experience with the social safety net.

We offer:

  • An immediate opportunity to make an impact
  • A get-stuff-done and fun, caring culture
  • Meaningful work and a strong shared sense of mission
  • A remote-first work environment with a dog-friendly office in Downtown Brooklyn and satellite offices in San Francisco and Salt Lake City
  • Propel believes that everyone should be compensated fairly and equitably. We set our salary ranges using compensation data from hundreds of NYC based startups at our stage. Additionally, pay is not determined based on location. The salary range for this position is $72,000 - $90,000 depending on experience. There is an opportunity to receive a team performance bonus of up to 10% of base salary. Equity and excellent benefits come with this position as well!
  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance. Our nationwide health insurance plan is Blue Cross Blue Shield and we cover 99% of the premium for our two base plans.
