Upsolve is an award-winning nonprofit that helps low-income families file for bankruptcy for free, using technology. In the last year, Upsolve has relieved over $100 million in debt for low-income families trapped in debt from medical bills, predatory loans, and layoffs. We combine the scale of tech startups with the quantifiable impact of the most effective nonprofits.

Upsolve is funded by Y Combinator, Eric Schmidt, and the Robin Hood Foundation. Our funders also include Jim Breyer, who led the Facebook Series A, Vinod Khosla, founder of Khosla Ventures and SUN Microsystems, and Chris Sacca, an early investor in Instagram, Facebook, and Uber.

In 2019, Fast Company named Upsolve World Changing Idea of the Year in Social Justice. In 2018, the New York Times gave Upsolve the Good Tech Award.

The Role

Upsolve is hiring a paralegal to help us provide the best level of service possible to low-income families trapped in debt.

Along with supporting our users, youll provide weekly feedback to our engineering team on how we improve our product, based on what you hear from users.

You dont need any prior experience in bankruptcy. Well teach you. If youre interested in nonprofits, startups, and advocacy, wed love to chat with you about how you can help us change the way low-income families in America receive legal help.
