About Earnest

We believe in a world where paying for your education takes less time than earning your degree.

Earnest, founded in 2013, is a technology company that insists on providing exceptional student lending products and services to earn happy clients. Every day, Earnest employees, or as we like to call ourselves, Earnies, are working hard to shape the next generation of finance. Earnest empowers people with the financial capital they need to live better lives. We strive to eliminate unnecessary costs from the system and offer our clients the lowest possible rates.

Our mission is to make higher education accessible and affordable for everyone. Our products empower anyone seeking higher education to reduce the total price tag of their degree, supercharge their ability to pay down student debt, and get on the right financial track fast.

Our values were built into the core of Earnest on day one. These values guide our ship and keep us constantly aligned. We believe in a culture that supports a Diverse, Inclusive, and Equitable workforce where everyone can have a sense of belonging to each other and our mission.
