Full Stack Engineer
Mortgages are a cornerstone of our economy, and home ownership is a critical component of the ‘American Dream’. After going through the mortgage process themselves, our co-founders were shocked at how laborious and complex the mortgage process still is, for both borrowers and lenders. They saw an opportunity to improve this essential — albeit unglamorous — process, and thus, Maxwell was born.
We’re committed to turning the tide of home ownership to be more accessible for all. Property ownership is a key facet of financial stability and wealth-building. Some would say it’s a requirement for a flourishing middle class. We believe it is, and we’re disrupting the mortgage status quo to make mortgages more simple and accessible for homeowners and more efficient and convenient for lenders.
Maxwell is an outstanding place to work for many reasons. Many of those reasons sound similar to what other tech companies will tell you — we’ve got solid (but not unbelievable) benefits, a great (and constantly improving) company culture, generous PTO, and so on. Like many software companies, we do work on a fairly boring tech stack, with some interesting pieces. And, as previously mentioned, we’ve got a compelling vision at the heart of our company — to turn the tide on home ownership and spread financial empowerment. But many other tech startups could probably tell you something similar.
So what can we offer that most others can not?
Above all, we are a no BS company doing honest work that really matters in the real world. Boring or not, we solve important problems that real people face, and we have the opportunity to affect real, significant change. This is not a whiz, bang, Instagram-meets-Uber-meets-Bitcoin, buzzword-bingo business venture. Nor is it a never-going-to-leave-the-lab, “machine learning” science project. We are a dedicated team on an honest-to-goodness startup grind where all of us can truly make a difference in the world — one lender, one borrower, one new homeowner at a time. And it’s working.
Our stack: RoR w/React/Redux running in Heroku and AWS. We are a Lean & Agile team working to move solidly to DevOps in 2019.
Our future: We are rapidly heading to our series A working within a $2.5 trillion market for making loans; in 2018 our platform helped closed $11 billion dollars in mortgages. We expect to double our team in 2019.
You are: kind, rigorous, curious, and mission-driven, and you want a mission that matters. We focus on building leaders, developer happiness, professional growth, and continuous learning.
We are building the kind of company we all want to work for, and we are looking for experienced, highly capable engineers who want to fix this problem with us. Mavericks and change agents. People crazy enough to think they can change the world by starting with the humble mortgage.
