#TeamAltruist is powered by kindness, brilliance, and grit. Get to know the folks who are driving Altruist's mission forward. Meet Rachel Brown.
As a first-generation college student, Rachel was intentional about wanting to make an impact through her career. She started working at age 14 and balanced multiple part-time jobs throughout high school and college. After graduating with honors in business and political science, she started her career in management consulting and was introduced to product management by a friend and mentor. Rachel made the pivot into product at a growth-stage fintech and fell in love with startup culture.
There’s no one right way to solve a problem, particularly if you want to disrupt an industry, so the environment requires creative thinking and collaboration. As a product manager, the amount of ownership and degree of impact you can have is incredible.”
In a profession and industry that traditionally has lacked diversity, Rachel invests time in supporting newer product managers develop their craft and navigate their careers. She mentors those seeking to make an impact in the field and is intentionally growing her own team to be more inclusive of diverse voices and experiences.
In a profession and industry that traditionally has lacked diversity, Rachel dedicates time to supporting newer product managers develop their craft and grow their careers. She regularly meets with those interested in product management and fintech to offer her experience as a resource to others and is intentionally growing her own team to be more inclusive of diverse voices.
Over the past year, Rachel has helped build and launch Altruist’s software platform for financial advisors and a native mobile app for their clients to make financial advice more accessible and affordable.
It is such a privilege to work on a product that can make a generational difference. This is career-defining work, and I believe that we are creating access to quality financial advice for the first time for many Americans.
Outside of work, Rachel and her newlywed husband enjoy exploring local farmers’ markets and wine shops and hosting memorable dinner parties for friends and family.
