Our Mission

FutureFuel.io exists to CRUSH student debt. We know student debt is hard. We make it easier.

Our values

We are a daring, inclusive people with strong integrity that drives us to act. Our empathy is a defining characteristic that aids us in anticipating the needs of those we serve. Through constant collaboration and flexibility, we are ready to face an ever-changing world with humility. We embody desenrascanço (the Portuguese word for MacGyverism) and strive to do good and be better every single day.


Pronounced "dez-zen-ras-can-so" We practice the art of finding a solution to a problem out of left field (Portuguese MacGyverism if you will) and we approach each day with a sense of urgency to make an impact. Our resourcefulness and grit keeps our eyes on the horizon. With vision, we blaze a path forward that others could not see. Our team acts with poise when making decisions quickly. We couple deliberate action with efficient processes to ensure we are delivering at a speed that will not only cross the finish line first, but also race ahead to set a new, higher bar.


We put the needs of our users above the bottom line. We treat each user with compassion and understanding throughout the entire customer journey. We value deep diversity and continuously strive for more than just representation.


We are fully remote, but never distant. Constant collaboration and agility keep us nimble while building a team and company that is equipped to respond to the demands of an ever-changing world.


We are here to serve our users, our customers, and our shareholders. We work hard to make freedom from student debt a reality. We believe in “no and low egos” to get the job done. We are truthful and honest in both our professional work and our personal lives. When faced with difficult decisions, we do the right thing, even in the face of adversity. We strive for constant self-awareness and own both our successes and our failures.
