Maxwell | Sr Software Engineers Full-stack/Backend/Frontend | Denver, CO | ONSITE & REMOTE

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.

An Insider's view of Maxwell

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have an amazing team that really works hard & cares not only about getting their job done but about going above and beyond. Everybody is eager to learn: about our product, our customers, how the industry operates, & about each other. We have created a culture where there are no stupid questions & always someone around to answer those questions.

Ellie

Customer Success Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The company culture requires high levels of personal responsibility and accountability, but with lots of freedom to be creative and accommodate personal work habits. Everyone is accessible and willing to help each other.

Jason

Business Ops & Finance Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Maxwell respects each employees personal life, cares about their success, and wants them to succeed both professionally and personally. They value us enough to take the time to disconnect and listen to every single person's opinion.

Alan

Head of Growth

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Every quarter each team makes a Big Bet. The bar is high: a big investment that could fail, but if successful would be a step-function change for Maxwell. We all know we're here to innovate and own the future. So we celebrate failures along with wins. If we're not failing, we're not learning, and we're probably not winning either.

John

Co-Founder & CEO

What's something quirky about your company?

We have a floating "Powder Ski Day" that we can use whenever we want. Got to love the company-wide appreciation for fresh powder :p
