Role Description

GENERALIST ENGINEER

Do you care deeply about helping people thrive financially?

At Point, you’ll join an experienced team working to create a new approach to home equity financing. Along the way, we are introducing the world to a new asset class that helps people improve their finances and aligns the interests of investors and homeowners.

We are looking for exceptional engineers to build the platform that homeowners use to sell equity in their homes, underwriters use to make funding decisions, and investors use to track their investments.

WHAT YOU’LL DO

You will be an integral part of a tight-knit engineering team working to design and implement new features, improve our architecture and take the lead to launch new products.

Expect to:

  • Design and engineer the marketplace tech to make shared equity financing a great option for homeowners and investors

  • Collaborate with the design team and product managers to create an engaging and transparent customer experience

  • Build analytics tools to capture and use data to drive risk and pricing algorithms and inform marketing spend

  • Automate data collection from multiple vendors and data sources and organize and index that data

  • Streamline the underwriting process to improve efficiency and accuracy while delivering cash to homeowners faster

Our tech stack is anchored by Ruby on Rails, React, PostgreSQL and Heroku.

YOU ARE

Excellent -- You are able to work fast and deliver fast, check your work and take pride in shipping quality.

Innovative -- You take the initiative to find new ways to solve problems. You help the team understand your point of view and advocate for great solutions.

Expert -- You know a couple of languages cold and learning new technologies is standard fare. Specialization at one level of the stack (front-end, back-end, etc.) is great, but expect to work on everything from front-end to the database to the deployment as the need arises.

Experienced -- We don’t count years, but you should have some solid work experience under your belt. Expect to hit the ground running.

If you love engineering and are passionate about creating software that makes a meaningful difference to our customers’ financial health, you belong at Point.
