We are unlocking the largest asset class in America - mortgage. Today, building a mortgage lender is expensive, time-intensive, and operationally complex. We are standardizing these inputs via software. We believe the infrastructure layer in mortgage is long overdue. If you do too, come join us.
We have previously worked at companies like Stripe, Instabase, Better, Databricks, Compass, and Palantir. We are backed by Conversion Capital, QED, Fifth Wall, Village Global, Peter Thiel, Naval, the cofounders of Ramp + Blend, and many more.
We are looking for a full stack engineer who is driven by building high quality products.
You will work closely with our design, product, and mortgage teams to shape the product we give to our customers.
Some of the technical problems you would work on include:
Building customer facing APIs
Building embeddable, white labeled UI elements
Building an underwriting and pre-approval engine for loans
Deep integrations with final funding partners
Our ideal candidate may have specialties in some of these areas but is comfortable operating across all parts of the stack and building end-to-end features.
3+ years of professional software engineering experience
Production experience building web applications. Preferably with React, TypeScript and Node
Experience building and scaling back end systems on cloud infrastructure
Care deeply about product experience and are driven to put great products in the hands of users
Willing to own projects and products end-to-end
Can work with our product and mortgage teams to translate mortgage requirements into the product
Excited about joining a small, high-growth team and tackle large open ended problems
Experience building and scaling APIs at Fintech companies (preferred)
