NextCapital Group – Why Work For Us?

We have been providing sophisticated, secure and scalable financial software solutions for nearly two decades.

We built NextCapital because as individual investors we were very unsatisfied with the tools that existed to manage our own money. We figured that if we are unhappy, there must be many other individual investors that were just as unhappy. So that's how it started. In fact, every day, NextCapital analyzes over $22 billion in client assets for individuals just like you!

Since its launch in 2014, NextCapital has maintained its place as a leading provider of financial accounts services and investor portfolio management solutions. NextCapital—the first company to build an automated 401K finance system—places each client's financial future in their own hands by sharing personalized expert advice and software services purpose-built for securing satisfying retirement plans and investments.


At NextCapital, employees always have a voice that is heard and a foot in the door when it comes to advanced career opportunities. Team members who understand the company's vision and goals can often climb the ladder progressively, and NextCapital works hard to present employees with tons of chances to explore new roles—enabling team members to grow with the company both personally and professionally.


According to team members across the company, being cubicle free and communication ready at NextCapital makes finding the right solutions and getting instant feedback a simple and collaborative process—for both co-workers and clients. NextCapital's open workspace keeps co-workers, managers, and the CEO within close reach of each other—always accessible for guidance or a friendly chat.


Discovering unprecedented ways to build optimal financial service products is always on the mind of the NextCapital team and at the core of its mission. According to employees, the various internal teams devotedly rally around pinning down the most advanced software methodologies to give NextCapital clients the very best possible results—an enormous challenge to accept and fun goal to achieve.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NextCapital Group (Chicago, IL) in February 2018.


    After applying, I was invited to complete a coding challenge on Hacker Rank. Once my submission was reviewed, I had a phone interview. I was then invited to a comprehensive onsite interview which included learning more about the platform, additional technical challenges, as well as an opportunity to learn about the company over lunch. The final step was a conversation with the CEO

    Interview Questions

    • The onsite technical challenges were hands on coding challenges using a Hacker Rank tool rather than white boarding.   1 Answer
