Come join one of the best places to work in Denver! Homebot is in hyper-growth mode, looking for trailblazers to join us in revolutionizing how people build wealth with the single largest asset they’ll ever own — their home. We sell our SaaS platform to real estate agents, lenders and loan servicers to engage their clients and prospects throughout the entire homeownership lifecycle with valuable tools helping them make informed decisions with their investment. Our customers love us and we love them!

Are you an engineer that loves building elegant, well-tested, scaleable, maintainable applications? Our stacks are modern versions of Ruby on Rails/Ruby on Jets, React, Ember, Postgres, Elasticsearch, Redis, with some Node, Go, and some other technologies mixed in.
We are scaling rapidly and are looking for a Lead Full Stack Engineer to join our growing Engineering team at Homebot. This role is for an experienced engineering leader who is passionate about enabling a team of full stack engineers to be successful, both professionally long-term and in the day-to-day.

You will also be a code contributor and ready to jump in where needed during sprints!

This is a full-time position based in our Denver, CO office. (Currently, due to COVID-19, we are working remotely and will continue to do so until October 28, 2021.

When we return to the office, we will have a hybrid work model in place that will allow employees to split their time between working in-office and from home a few days a week.)

Compensation: We are committed to providing competitive pay and benefits that are in line with industry standards. We analyze and carefully consider several factors when determining compensation, including skills, qualifications and professional experience, which can cause your compensation to vary.

More about Homebot

Problem we’re solving:

The US homeownership market is the largest asset class in the world at $30 trillion but is essentially an “unmanaged” asset that causes people to leave billions of dollars on the table every year. At the same time, loan officers and real estate agents spent $20 billion a year on desperate attempts to maintain mindshare and loyalty with their past clients in hopes of gaining more repeat and referral business.

Our solution:

Homebot is a client-for-life portal that maximizes repeat and referral business for lenders by empowering consumers to build wealth through homeownership. The award-winning client portal delivers personalized, actionable intelligence throughout the entire homeownership lifecycle to every client and prospect. With an average 50% monthly engagement rate, Homebot ensures lenders and agents remain the trusted advisors that consumers rely on to make informed decisions about the largest asset they may ever own, their home. 

It’s definitely a game-changer and we are truly making an impact. Having launched in 2016, we're over 90 Homebotters strong and expect to continue that growth throughout the year. Join us!

An Insider's view of Homebot

What are some social events your company does?

In addition to spontaneous happy hours, we’ve gotten a suite to watch the Rockies play, whipped up on the execs bowling, and soaked up the sun together at a pool party. This summer, we’re planning on camping in the foothills while listening one of our engineer’s band play sweet cover tunes.

Senior Product Designer

What does your typical day look like?

As the Customer Support Manager I lead the team that works closest with our clients! We handle all emails, chats, & phone calls on a daily basis. I focus on ensuring that the team & our clients have the right tools to be successful, creating processes that make life easier for all, & assisting in the innovation that makes Homebot so great!

Nate

Customer Support Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has grown exponentially, in the time I've been at Homebot. While the notion of working for a startup may seem daunting, the ability to "wear multiple hats" has provided me the opportunity to not only expand my knowledge of multiple facets of a business, but to also become well-versed in all the aspects of my personal job category.

Cameron

Finance Manager

What is your vision for the company?

83% of the average homeowner's wealth at retirement comes from home equity. We want consumers to be empowered to build wealth through homeownership. We do this by providing personalized intelligence for all home financing/buying/selling/renting decisions. Our plan is not to help homeowners feel rich but to help them be rich.

Ernie Graham

CEO

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We work within the real estate space so we encounter an exorbitant amount of data that needs to be processed such as home valuations, loan data, and parsing user inputted addresses. Efficiently taking an address and turn that into our final product takes a many steps with failure cases along the way can create a tough challenge!
