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 1997, 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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NextCapital Group in January 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewers looked like they didn't want to be there and made me feel like a moron for not getting a solution quickly enough. Overall, super awkward experience. Couldn't have walked out faster.
