Out of the Office and Into the Streets


Last month, the Simple team gathered to march through downtown Portland in the city’s annual Pride Parade. Undeterred by the rain, we walked with our friends, partners, and families to celebrate equality.

We’re excited to participate in initiatives like Pride that promote inclusivity and unique worldviews. You can’t disrupt the banking industry by trying to fit in. In order to build a product that serves all people, we built a company where individuality is encouraged. It’s the diverse perspectives of our team that make our culture great.
