More about Mission Lane:

Mission Lane is based in the U.S., with offices in Richmond, Virginia & San Francisco, California. Founded in December 2018, weve rapidly grown to almost 2 million customers.

It all started with a realization: nearly fifty percent of the adult population in the U.S. doesnt have access to a clear line of credit. And by clear we mean credit without crazy fees that only increase debt. Most traditional credit card companies either overlook or overcharge this group because they have less-than-prime credit scores or no score at all. We decided this just wouldnt do.

We understand that everyone doesnt have the same opportunities. We also know that everyone joins us at different stages of their financial journeys. Providing access to clear credit was a critical first step, but our work isnt done. We are actively developing new products designed to meet our customers where they are, according to their needs.

We get it - life happens . Thats why Mission Lane is hard at work paving a better way forward.

Just like for our customers, Mission Lane creates opportunities for our employees to learn, grow, and prosper. We strive to create an environment that brings out the best in everyone, everyday.
