Access. Transparency. Technology. Founded in 2015, AlphaFlow is a technology-driven investment manager providing professionally managed portfolios of real estate loans. We make the $75 billion fix-and-flip industry accessible to institutional investors. With the recent launch of our new platform, TITAN, we’ve opened up our institutional platform to smaller investors.

As a result of leading with technology and data analytics AlphaFlow is able to provide transparency & speed at a rate our competitors can’t. We partner with non-bank real estate lenders who provide 6-12 month bridge loans on single-family and small multifamily properties by purchasing their loans thereby helping them grow their businesses.

AlphaFlow uses software to streamline and automate today’s manual workflow and our engineering team is constantly developing simple and elegant solutions to further automate a manually intensive industry.

Engineering at AlphaFlow

Engineering team and processes

We are a small team of engineers running a modified agile process. Sprints are kicked off with a planning meeting where we review progress from last week and discuss time estimates and features we’re going to work on for the current sprint. Engineers work across the stack and collaborate often on technical designs, code reviews, design decisions and prioritization. As we scale the team we’ll bias toward more specialization (backend vs frontend vs data) but there will always be opportunities to work across the stack.

Our stack consists of a React frontend, multiple backends written in go/postgres as well as additional services written in go/node. Ancillary, data intensive systems are built in python. Infrastructure is hosted on GCP using docker, kubernetes, and terraform.

Weekly all hands meetings allow engineers to present their work to the company and demo new features as well as learn about interesting projects in other orgs within the company.

Technical Challenges
  • Building a system to ingest and track performance of $1B+ of real estate loans
  • Automating and digitizing previously manual processes to purchase, manage, service, and report upon our loan portfolio
  • API integrations with online lenders and third party vendors to track loan performance and updates in real time
  • Optimization engine to ensure investor money is constantly rebalanced among available pool of investments
Projects you might work on
  • As a major player in the real estate loan space for the past several years, we have amassed a massive dataset of loan origination and performance data. To augment our underwriting and loan purchasing capabilities, we are working on building a programmatic underwriting system based on this data as well as other third party data sources. This project would include: - Developing robust data pipeline to ingest, clean, process and store third party real estate data. - Extracting relevant features from past real estate loans and performance data stored internally - Building an ML / classification system to predict loan outcomes - Data visualizations / tools

  • AlphaFlow provides our partners with secure, streamlined processes. We do this by carefully identifying error-prone or slow-moving practices in our industry and improving them with thoughtful software solutions. As an engineer, you'll have the opportunity to introduce the power of elegant software to the real estate lending ecosystem. Whether it's cutting down internal loan review times from days to hours, giving lenders realtime visibility into the review process, or automating reporting to our capital partners, you'll be making a concrete impact on our ability to scale up and deliver industry-leading services.

  • Our risk management strategy is founded in rigorous data analysis. As internal metrics become more and more sophisticated, maintaining our high standards of transparency becomes an interesting challenge. You'll share responsibility for not only translating our risk management strategy into code, but enabling internal and external stakeholders to engage with it in rich reporting interfaces.
