Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.
People’s relationship with their money is deeply personal and complex. Every day, they make decisions based on their means, whether it’s to make a purchase or invest in their future. We use design to rethink what personal finance can do for these individuals. We build experiences that give them freedom, security, knowledge, and a better quality of life.
Design serves a vital role at Affirm: from building narratives through data to creating products that help people make important financial decisions. As designers you are responsible for crafting experiences that solve problems people struggle with every day. We hold design to a higher standard than most. It’s more than a tactic to build great products. It’s a helping hand, a new opportunity, a vision for the future. For us, design reshapes that relationship... people have with their money and allows us to engage with them on an emotional level.
Checkout is the backbone of our business, for over the billions of credit we provide access for and the millions of active affirm users looking to have more control over their purchasing, it all comes through the purchasing experience.
Our mission is clear (not simple, and we like it that way!): Empower our users to pay however and wherever they choose by offering a suite of honest financial products that unlock greater purchasing power and payment flexibility over time.
