Jimmy Jacobson grew up in Snoqualmie, about 45 minutes east of Seattle, Washington. He graduated from college in 2020, as the pandemic was breaking – but, directly correlated with the pandemic, he didn’t actually get to walk and receive his diploma. His first job out of school was the startup he is building now. Outside of tech, he rides mountain bikes, digging the trails at Tiger Mountain or back home in Snoqualmie. Around Seattle, he likes to hang out at parks and throw the frisbee, or chilling on the beaches with a late night bonfire.
Post graduation, the job Jimmy had lined up got cancelled. Last minute, he joined some alumni slack channels and sent a cold message to his now co-founder. He found himself fascinated by the idea of giving cash back to people for paying their rent.
