Company Overview

Intuit is a global technology platform that helps consumers and small businesses overcome their most important financial challenges. Serving more than 100 million customers worldwide, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to prosper. We never stop working to find new, innovative ways to make that possible.

Job Overview

Intuit believes in the power of the individual. The power to do more. To make more. To be more.

We believe in the people who do things – the hat jugglers, the to-do list junkies, the masters of getting it done faster, better and more efficiently than ever before. Whether that's balancing the household budget, running a business or paying taxes.

We believe in these people because we are these people. We thrive on action – and results. And by making things simpler, we all get more out of doing what we love.

We're innovators and we’ve been at it for more than three decades. We don't stand still.

As the world evolves, so do we – inventing new solutions to solve important problems, perfecting those solutions and delighting our customers. In short: Improving people's financial lives so profoundly they can't imagine going back to the old way.

We started small in 1983 with Quicken personal finance software, simplifying a common household dilemma: balancing the family checkbook. To date, we've improved the lives of more than 50 million people, and our annual revenue exceeds $6 billion. We're publicly traded with the symbol INTU on the Nasdaq Stock Market. We are regularly recognized as one of the best places to work in locations around the world.

Our Products

In the US our flagship products – QuickBooks, TurboTax,  Mint, Credit Karma and MailChimp – define our commitment to revolutionize the way people manage their personal finances, run small businesses and pay employees.

But we're much more than that. Today, our expanding portfolio serves customers in the United Kingdom, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, India, and Mexico making it easier for small business owners and accountants to manage their finances, offering localized, online versions of QuickBooks Online.

Our Future

As the way we live and work evolves, we adapt our strategy to meet and lead these changes. No matter where you find us – and whether you use our products on your PC, mobile phone or tablet – we remain committed to creating new and easier ways for consumers and businesses to tackle life's financial chores, giving them more time to live their lives and run their businesses. As our business and product lines grow beyond accounting and into new areas, we will build on our heritage of innovation.
