About LendingHome

LendingHome's built-from-scratch technology simplifies every stage of the loan process, ensuring easy financing for both novice and experienced real estate investors.

Job Description

LendingHome supports real estate investors by offering the opportunity to build successful businesses through a simplified loan process. Our competitive product, innovative technology, and experienced team are changing the way real estate investors receive funding for their fix-and-flip and rental properties, transforming the experience from end to end.


This is a fully virtual/remote position and can be based anywhere in the United States, or Canada through a qualified agency.  LendingHome is excited to be building a virtual distributed workforce, allowing us to grow beyond geographic boundaries, build a diverse team with the talent we want, and increase productivity while providing work-life balance.  In the future we do expect to have plenty of in-person events. We also have offices in San Francisco, CA and Pittsburgh, PA for those of you that live local and want to work from the office.

Why LendingHome

We are building a complete real-estate investor platform. First, we became the largest fix-and-flip lender in America. Then, we built a rental property loan product. Most recently, we built a property marketplace to help our customers source their next investment property.

Along the way we created the world’s most advanced mortgage platform, closing loans 5x faster at 1/3 the cost via automation, alternative credit, and custom loan products. We are in a $500B market and we've grown faster than any of our competitors in the fix-and-flip space. We’ve funded over $5.5B of loans across 27,000+ projects. We have about 40 engineers working on our custom platform spanning loan application, origination, and post-origination. We’ve raised $166M+ in VC from investors like: Foundation Capital, Ribbit Capital, and First Round.

Most lenders are processing mortgages by hand—we are doing it with technology. We close loans in days/weeks instead of months with higher quality at lower costs. Help us change the way mortgages happen and build an impactful business at the same time.
