Join our mission

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.

Overview

Join Our Mission

Intuit is a global technology platform that helps our customers and communities overcome their most important financial challenges. We help give over 50 million consumers, small business, and self-employed customers around the world the opportunity to prosper.

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 gurus, those who love 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 have been at it for more than three decades. And 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: We’re on a mission to power prosperity around the world.

We started small in 1983 with Quicken personal finance software, simplifying a common household dilemma: balancing the family checkbook. Today, we serve 42 million customers in North America, Europe, Australia, and Brazil, with products available from the desktop to the cloud.

Supporting our mission, our strategy is to apply a laser-like focus to help our customers prosper through One Intuit Ecosystem that:

Puts more money in their pockets through data-driven services

Eliminates work through innovative technology

Provides complete confidence that they can do it right – by themselves – with complete confidence

Just as we transformed before, from DOS to the web, and to the cloud and mobile, we are evolving again to deliver personalized experiences on a trusted, open platform and help create indispensable connections.

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. That's not just our history. It's our future.
