Take your career to new heights working with an amazing company doing next level work in the FinTech industry.

Since 2012, Avant has connected customers to over $5 billion through 800,000 transactions and counting.

As an industry-leading technology company, Amount has grown rapidly with customers who collectively manage close to $1T in US assets and are servicing more than 25 million customers. To better align each company for future success Amount and Avant have made the decision to separate, becoming independently operating companies in order to focus each on their long term growth and goals.
