About Public

Public is a new kind of brokerage that makes it possible to buy any public stock with any amount of money.

Job Description is an investing app that makes the stock market social. By building a transparent community of investors and offering fractional shares of thousands of publicly-traded companies, we’re making the stock market inclusive, educational, and fun.

Earlier this year, we announced a Series B funding round led by Accel and Greycroft (the original investors in Venmo), as well as Will Smith (Dreamers VC), NFL star J.J. Watt, Sophia Amoruso, and Shari Redstone’s Advancit Capital. You can read more on that in Variety.

With interest in the stock market surging among a new generation of investors, our community is growing rapidly. To support our ambitious goals, our team is growing and we’re looking for sharp, enthusiastic people who believe in our mission to fundamentally change the way people invest. In normal circumstances, we’re located in New York with an office in Copenhagen, but in these times we’re maintaining momentum as a remote team.
