About Our company


People shouldn't have to wait weeks to get the pay they've already earned.


Our story


Our company was born from the simple idea that no one should have to wait weeks to get their pay when they've already earned it. Every year, in the U.S. alone, over $1 trillion of hourly pay waits for two weeks before getting paid out. At our company, we're creating a shortcut through the slowness of our financial system. We let you get your pay when you want it with just the click of a button.


How it all started


Nearly 10 years ago, our company CEO Ram started helping his employees by writing personal checks when they needed money before payday. It was a simple hack to overcome a payroll system that didn't support individualized pay cycles. Fast-forward to 2012. With the rise of smartphones and hyper-connectedness, Ram realized the technology to let every employee unlock their pay finally existed. Our company was created to set a new bar for how people manage their money.
