Senior Software Engineer
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.
