Director, Financial Planning & Analysis at Boundless
Remote / United States of America

We’re a team of immigrants and experts who have struggled with our own journeys through the complex, high-stakes U.S. immigration system. That is why we are building deeply customer-centric products and experiences to become the default trusted partner for all families through their entire immigration journey and their first ten years of life in a new country.

In 2020, Boundless acquired RapidVisa to become the largest player in the family immigration industry, helping tens of thousands of families every year achieve their dreams. After four years of policy headwinds, we are at an inflection point, projecting to grow 3-4x every year through the Biden administration and become the first brand in an industry that has never had one before.

We're backed by influential early-stage venture investors around the country, including Foundry Group (led by Brad Feld), Pioneer Square Labs, Two Sigma Ventures, Trilogy Equity Partners, Emerson Collective, and are well-capitalized for our upcoming growth.
