Manage your career and wealth together.

Most of your tech salary is paid out in stock, effectively making your career the biggest wealth management decision of your lifetime. We’re building tools to help you manage both your career and your wealth together holistically.

We believe in wealth equity

Most of us in tech are “first generation” — first to go to college, first to be an engineer, first to be paid in RSUs. At Candor, we’re building products to help you invest not just in yourself but also in your communities — all towards building lasting legacies of wealth and opportunity.

Three steps to wealth equity in tech

Closing the job and money knowledge gap

Working towards true wealth equity

Democratizing wealth management

Tech Career & Finance Resources

Information assymetry leads to skewed access to opportunity. Many of us are the “ first to work in tech” in our community. We’re closing the knowledge gap with 400+ articles and guides on career and wealth and our weekly newsletter.

Working towards

Manage your hard-
earned RSU's

Wealth creation has shifted, but wealth management hasn’t That’s why we launched the first platform to help you manage, diversify, and predict your RSU pay

Our Team Values

We’re united by one goal: helping pioneers. It’s hard to be the first in your family to “make it” - it’s even harder to bring that opportunity to your whole community. We believe everyone in tech deserves equal access to the best resources and we’re working hard to build them for you.

Craftsmanship

We move fast, but we like things done right the first time. We treat everyone on our team like an entrepreneur in their own domain.

Simplicity

The hardest thing in the world is to make things simple. We value the humility it takes to nail product execution in a way that promotes universal success.

Curiosity

We don't take "no" for an answer. Whether it's compliance or UX, there is always a way forward or an obscure rule that no one's thought to use — you just need to look hard enough.

Low Ego, High Execution

We approach each other with kindness, best intentions, and humility. Together, we are uncompromising on only shipping our best and holding each other to that standard.

Grit

We fight hard for what we believe is right, and we operate with integrity toward each other and the community we serve.

Motto: respice finem

At Candor, we believe in building things that last.

Whether it’s investing responsibly or navigating our careers with integrity, we encourage our community to always “look to the end” with everything we do. Because longevity always starts with a long term perspective.
