Maxwell is on a mission to transform the $8.5T residential mortgage market by reimagining how loan officers work together with borrowers to buy a home. 

Based in beautiful Denver, Colorado, Maxwell is a VC-funded, Techstars-backed company with a mission to empower mortgage lenders to be more connected, productive, and successful.

WHO ARE WE?
Maxwell was founded in 2015 by three friends who were fed up with the arduous process of getting a mortgage. We believe everyone who is buying a home deserves a delightful mortgage experience. 

After speaking with hundreds of lenders, homebuyers and real estate agents, Maxwell was born as a solution to provide mortgage professionals a modern platform that transforms and enhances their workflow. Buying a home is one of the happiest, most fulfilling experiences of a person’s life. We help make the mortgage just as fun.

We also believe that doing well means also doing good: a portion of all of Maxwell’s revenues is dedicated to building homes for those who need them most in Haiti and El Salvador.

WHO ARE YOU?
You are an experienced senior engineer looking for a position where you’ll get to touch all levels of the stack. As a full-time member of the engineering team, you’ll help build software and contribute to decisions that will steer the product’s future. As a senior engineer you will also mentor and influence our team of talented technologists. 

You need to be comfortable with deployment environments, writing database queries, building out backend services, and implementing UI that enhances the user experience. We integrate with many third party services, so experience with a variety of third party APIs is a plus. 

You’ll be part of our product team which is design, frontend and backend engineering combined. We believe that everyone who works on a product is both a product and a technical contributor. You’ll use your experience to inform our engineering process and decisions when building new features, enhancing existing functionality, and ensuring scalability and availability of the entire platform.

WHAT IS OUR STACK?
We are a typical Ruby on Rails stack with React on the frontend.

Back-end: Ruby on Rails (Rails 4.x)
Front-end: React, Redux, Javascript, JQuery, SLIM, SCSS, HTML 5, CSS 3
Database: Postgres
Infrastructure: Heroku, AWS

WHAT YOU GET
An opportunity to be a key part of an agile team of thinkers and doers collaborating to help people complete complex financial decisions simply. We offer meaningful equity at an early stage company, a competitive salary, top-tier medical, dental and vision insurance, and generous vacation time.

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.

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.
