Our client is an NYC startup on a mission to revolutionize the outdated mortgage industry by letting people shop, compare, and close on any mortgage from any lender, completely online.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. Getting a mortgage should be just as simple, modern, and transparent as buying anything else online. Our client is building the first-ever fully digital marketplace to make this possible - Kayak, but for mortgages.
The US has a total mortgage debt of $10.3 trillion. In 2017 alone, there were $1.75 trillion in new mortgages generated. And these are all being handled by ancient companies running stone age tech, even though 75% of mortgage holders report that they would use an online platform to get their mortgages if one was available.
A Reuters Report indicates that 95% of ATM Swipes still rely on COBOL code. In case you didn't know, COBOL is a dead programming language from the 70s. The costs of these astronomical inefficiencies are being passed down to you, the consumer. Our client is working to disrupt that market and bring it into the 21st century.
Founded by a diverse team of mortgage industry vets and software engineers, our client has raised over $11M from Thrive Capital, Lerer Hippeau, Techstars and other well-known investors to completely reinvent the mortgage process, empower consumers and democratize mortgages.
Savvy devs think like an investor. You can learn new things and meet new people working at any new job. You will learn significantly more, build a stronger network, and accelerate your career trajectory much faster by joining a successful, growing startup.
This startup currently has in the range of ~10 employees. The only way to have a steep career trajectory is by either founding your own successful startup or by joining one. Successful startups grow much faster than they can hire good talent, so naturally there are always opportunities for you to pick up slack and provide additional value if you are so inclined. If you fill a responsibility vacuum well, you will most likely get promoted into that role, and you can keep that going until you rise to the C suite.
With $3m in funding and a very small team, this company is a place where your future is in your own hands
This position is for a full stack developer that has some level of tech aligment with us. You will be working on a modern React/mobx/Django stack, so maybe your skillset is react/redux/rails, vue/vuex/django or something along those lines - we are not going to be looking for a .net core purist, for instance. It is also important that although you like to work with modern tech, you are also able to roll up your sleeves and learn what you have to about legacy systems in order to be able to integrate with them.
