Pay Rate : $ 90,000.00 - 125,000.00 /Year

Our amazing startup client is on a mission to revolutionize the outdated mortgage industry by letting people shop,
compare, and close on any mortgage from any lender, completely online. Purchasing a home is
the largest, most important financial transaction of most people's lives. We believe getting a
mortgage should be just as simple, modern, and transparent as buying anything else online.

Founded by a diverse team of mortgage industry vets and software engineers, our client is a
Techstars Brokerage Firm NYC '16 company backed by an amazing group of investors and advisors who
share our vision to empower consumers and democratize mortgages.

We're rebuilding the mortgage stack from the inside out. Engineering is our core competency
and competitive advantage. As an early member of our small engineering team, you'll have the
opportunity to build out core functionality, make important design and architecture decisions,
rapidly build new features to support customers, and shape the future of the product. We're
excited by the challenges of building a robust, scalable mortgage platform that can serve
thousands of consumers and millions in loan transaction volume each day.

Who We're Looking For
  • Real-word development experience, solid computer science fundamentals, and mastery
  • of at least one programming language (Python a plus).
  • Strong quantitative skills, with some knowledge or experience in finance a plus (but you
  • don't have to know anything about mortgages–we've got that covered!)
  • Willing and able to learn quickly, whether it be cool, new technology we're building
  • ourselves, or arcane, ill-conceived data formats we're forced to integrate with.
  • Strong product mindset and willingness to collaborate with marketing and operations
  • teams to shape the product and user experience.
  • You enjoy creating elegant solutions, but you're agile and pragmatic enough to know
  • when and how to make compromises in order to ship faster and continuously iterate.

Technologies We Use
  • Python, Django, REST Framework, Celery, PostgreSQL
  • Javascript, React, HTML, SCSS, Bootstrap
  • Heroku, Amazon Web Services
