Divvy Homes

51 - 100 Employees
11 - 25 Engineers
$100M+ Funding
Series B

Over the past year, we’ve worked hard to build an exceptional team, raise over $70 million in funding, and provide homes for dozens of families, meaningfully changing their financial future. Our customers choose any home for sale, and Divvy buys it on their behalf. The customer leases the home back from us while building equity credits along the way, preparing to buy the home at the end of their lease. Our customers get to live in their future home today, while buying fractions of the home over time.

Divvy’s founders are experienced real estate and fintech entrepreneurs. We were incubated by Max Levchin’s startup lab (HVF) and are looking for resourceful and passionate people to join our mission.

Engineering at Divvy Homes
Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on bi-weekly sprints. Each sprint begins with a Monday planning/brainstorming and end of day goal setting. Each week ends with a short retro and demos. Engineers are given autonomy and support to craft solutions to business problems. We ship frequently and leverage GitHub and Heroku to ease that process. Each improvement we make in our efficiency or reach leads to more first time homeowners.

Technical Challenges

In our first 24 months, we've deployed over $100,000,000 into the housing market. As we scale, these numbers grow very quickly. We are underwriting thousands of applicants and simplifying the home shopping experience across many markets. This means ingesting tens of thousands of homes, pricing those homes in real time, and underwriting risk and fraud as quickly as possible. As we scale to new markets, our goal is to be purchasing many homes per day, and approving/rejecting candidates in under 5 minutes.

Projects you might work on
  • You would get to replace our current lengthy underwriting process with a pure-cashflow-based solution analyzing bank transactions.

  • You would work on building out our ledger system which breaks down payments into rent and equity components and tracks a tenant's % ownership over time.

  • You would build a streamlined home-shopping experience to allow a customer to go from sign-up to home purchase in a matter of days.
