Who is Ratehub Inc?
We’re a company on a mission. Every single team member, from product & engineering, to sales & marketing, finance, operations and everything in between is obsessed with one thing; helping Canadian’s make better financial choices. And we’re pretty great at it, too. Via our digital application technology and our award winning in-house brokerages, we help over 1m Canadian’s per month make a positive impact on their finances. 365 days a year we deliver our users the best online mortgage experience, personalized credit card options, and cheaper auto & home insurance policies than they typically get from their existing financial adviser.
Changing how people make financial choices isn’t easy, though. We know that achieving our mission is full of challenges; challenges that can be complex and often unexpected, but that are always interesting, rewarding and fun to solve as a team. This is where you come in. We are on the hunt for the right kind of people to join us and help lead us forward to continued growth.
