Democratizing access to credit

Pier is building the best-in-class tools to power
the next generation of innovators to improve access to credit

Our story

Alex and Jessica met at their last company, where they saw firsthand how companies large and small struggled to build their own credit products due to the highly complex, cumbersome, fragmented and expensive nature of existing credit solutions. Companies and borrowers suffer because there is no dedicated modern credit and compliance solutions with a developer centric approach. Our mission at Pier is to build the best-in-class tools for the next generation of innovators to improve access to credit.

Our purpose

Our values

Customer Obsession

Everyone is customer service and support. We believe that amazing products stem from deep-rooted understanding of customer pain points and building solutions to address them.

Velocity

Thrive in high-velocity environments where you learn fast, operate at light-speed and execute with a very high bar. Be hungry, curious and continue to push the limits. It’s less about where you’re at, more where you can be and how fast you can get there!

Empathy factor

Empathize with those around you, whether it’d be customers, partners, teammates or others. Have genuine interests in the lives of others and how our actions can affect everyone around us.
