Financial Engines – Why Work For Us?

In a nutshell

We do a lot of stuff, but the short version is we’re an independent investment adviser hired by some of the biggest companies in the US to provide personalized advice for retirement.

We are a fiduciary. This is our pledge to you.


Experienced professionals with your best interests in mind

Our team is made up of some of the brightest minds in the business. From our founders to our leadership team to our employees, everyone here wants to help make your retirement better.

  • FE provides the profile content, but FE is not responsible for employee and candidate reviews, the news feed, ads or other content appearing on the Glassdoor site, or for third party links; and
  • The site is hosted by Glassdoor, not by FE, so FE is not responsible for the accuracy or timeliness of the content. 

The Financial Engines difference

We help millions of people get personalized retirement advice that makes a difference in their lives. And while we’re proud of what we’ve done, we need you to help take us further. Together we can reimagine what retirement planning could look like, feel like, and be like.

We’re looking for talented, diverse people who code or write or design or communicate or manage or build or advise or sell or everything and anything in between.
