At Douugh, we're a team of talented, dedicated people who have seen how banks and neobanks aren't helping people better manage their finances, or improve their financial health. We are doing something about that. 

Born out of the desire to see individuals get better at saving, help focus and improve their spending habits, and make better use of the money they have, Douugh is set to shake up the banking market - starting with the US, expanding into Australia and other markets soon.

If you have these abilities, and you want to be part of a fintech company that makes a positive difference in people's lives, we want to hear from you! Apply now!
