Upsolve | $250 million in debt relieved for low-income families | NYC or Remote | Full-time | $140k-$175k |

Upsolve is a nonprofit that helps low-income families file bankruptcy for free, using an online web app. To date, we’ve relieved over $250 million in debt for our users.

At Upsolve, we believe every family should be able to access their civil rights, regardless of whether they can afford a lawyer. Bankruptcy is a powerful tool that allows low-income families to relieve their debt and re-enter the economy after suffering from medical bills, layoffs, and predatory loans. Due to COVID-19, it’s more important than ever.

But legal fees in bankruptcy are too expensive for low-income families who need access. We’re making this critical part of the American safety net free and accessible at scale, using technology.
