Full Stack Engineer - Mortgage at Opendoor
United States of America
About Opendoor
Founded in 2014, Opendoor’s mission is to empower everyone with the freedom to move. We believe the traditional real estate process is broken and our goal is simple: build a digital, end-to-end customer experience that makes buying and selling a home simple, certain and fast. We have assembled a dedicated team with diverse backgrounds to support more than 100,000 homes bought and sold with us and the customers who have selected Opendoor as a trusted partner in handling one of their largest financial transactions. But the work is far from over as we continue to grow in new markets. Transforming the real estate industry takes tenacity and dedication. It takes problem solvers and builders. It takes a tight knit community of teammates doing the best work of their lives, pushing one another to transform a complicated process into a simple one.  So where do you fit in? Whether you’re passionate about real estate, people, numbers, words, code, or strategy -- we have a place for you. Real estate is broken. Come help us fix it.
 
About the Team
Our team was recently acquired by Opendoor to innovate and deliver the mortgage experience.  We started RedDoor - a successful Silicon Valley start-up and 2 years post our MVP, the results had amplified that the bet we made on innovating the mortgage experience from the lens of the customer, was delivering results that got noticed across the industry.   We were pursued for acquisition from most of the major brands in brokerage and mortgage, because the product we built differentiates the experience of mortgage from everything else currently available to the customer.  
 
We chose to join Opendoor because of the tremendous opportunity to scale in their platform, but also and perhaps more importantly, because of alignment on values around the priority of the customer experience and the overall culture, which to be honest, at the end of the day, even if you love what you do, if you don’t love who you are doing it with, it’s not fun.  At RedDoor, we had a lot of fun…and continuing that at Opendoor has been a blast. 
 
Caring about the customer is contagious on our team - this is an imperative mindset to be a part of our team and every person resonates with their passion no matter what they do - it’s also a principle Opendoor operates from (“Start and end with the customer”) and it is exemplified across the Company from the top down…otherwise, we wouldn’t be here.
 
Our team is not afraid to take risks - we are commissioned with the directive to deliver our mortgage technology to Opendoor’s markets in CA in 2022 and then scale it across the platform and all markets.  This is a $50B+ opportunity, and we are going to deliver!
