Betterment’s First Customer Speaks
For the past week I've had the honor of being Betterment's first customer. Everyone was quite excited as we huddled around my computer last week to sign-up.
There are literally dozens of moving parts behind the scenes at Betterment that make our product work. While each of these parts has been thoroughly tested on its own, this was the first time we got to see everything operating together… And it worked!
I love my test account (and I’m not just saying that because I head up product development). I’m so proud of the team, and I can’t wait until Americans
All the parts are working together!
everywhere can have access to the smart and simple savings I’ve been experiencing the past week.
There is still a lot of testing and bug fixing ahead of us before the product meets our high quality standards for release, but it won’t be long until the first round of public beta testers will be getting invitations to sign-up. If you would like to be included on our beta launch list, go to our homepage and give us your email address.
