NerdWallet.com is a personal finance website which is branded as helping consumers make money decisions. The site builds data-driven tools and crunches numbers. Categories of coverage include education, finance, health, investing, and shopping.
NerdWallet was founded in August 2009 by former Wall Street analyst Tim Chen and former JPMorgan Chase option trader Jacob Gibson. Chen started NerdWallet while looking for a new credit card, creating a spreadsheet of 1,000 credit cards. Chen then helped others shop for credit cards.
In March 2014, NerdWallet hired former LinkedIn VP Dan Yoo to join the company as the chief operating officer. He replaced co-founder Gibson, who shifted to an advisory role at the company. At the same time, Flo Thinh, who built the recruiting team at Zynga joined NerdWallet as the VP of Talent. In July 2014, NerdWallet announced Ken Shuman as its first VP of Communications. Shuman comes from Trulia, a real estate site he helped build into a national consumer brand. 
NerdWallet is profitable and independent, with no outside investors.
