The problem:

America is going through a housing affordability crisis, where access to ownership is growing increasingly out of reach. 33% of Americans are renting, and 25% of those that are renting spend over half of their income on rent. As a direct result, nearly 75% of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings. These numbers are projected to only get worse for future generations, as student debt and the cost of living continue to balloon.

Homevest offers a way for renters to access the financial benefits of ownership while they pay rent, providing a new, accessible modality for wealth creation. As the first program to give renters access to home price appreciation and cash flow on rental income, Homevest allows renters to access the financial benefits of ownership with the flexibility of renting.

We're a NYC-based team of former investment and technology professionals and are well-funded from top venture capitalists (Khosla, Kairos) and strategic angels from Opendoor, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, and Millennium. We're looking for talented, hard-working, and passionate team members to help us make the benefits of ownership accessible to all.


The role:

One of the biggest (and most fun) challenges that we face is constructing a data driven real estate portfolio so that our real estate investors and customers win. As a Machine Learning Engineer, you will design and develop efficient and highly scalable machine learning services that will power our pricing optimization (home purchase and rent), inventory management, and demand prediction systems. You will collaborate with our Real Estate, Finance, Data Science, and Engineering teams to build prototypes, invent new features, and deliver highly predictive services that enable customer and investor delight. Every engineer on our team has the chance to work on mission critical projects and grow quickly with the company.


What you'll do:

* Contribute to all phases of algorithm development, from research and testing to production deployment
* Apply machine learning techniques to create solutions to business problems
* Manage our data pipeline, combining multiple structured data sources with creative unstructured sources
* Design and develop scalable tools for model training, feature extracting, backtesting, and A/B testing.


We're looking for teammates who:

* Have 3+ years of professional data science/engineering experience, or equivalent
* Have advanced knowledge of a scientific computing language (R or Python) and SQL
* Have strong fundamentals in algorithms, data structures, and predictive modeling
* Have experience in distributed data processing frameworks such as Dask, Spark or Hadoop
* Have strong references from past colleagues
* Understand that great engineering is a means to create world class products for our customers - the customer always comes first
* Care more about getting to the truth than being right
* Are well respected by their peers
* Are passionate about their craft
* Are kind, positive, and optimistic
* Love to proactively help/teach their teammates
* Learn quickly and are comfortable in a fast-paced environment


What you'll get from Homevest:

* The opportunity to join a mission driven company that is working on a novel solution to a major problem
* A culture that prioritizes thoughtfulness, mentorship, and hard work
* A team with a diverse set of expertise across Real Estate, Finance, Sales, Engineering, and Data Science
* Competitive compensation and thoughtfully designed perks
* Comprehensive benefits (medical, dental, vision, commuter, 401k, etc)
* Flexible vacation policy with required time off - we work incredibly hard but also encourage taking time off to relax, reflect, and do what you love outside of work


Homevest is committed to building a diverse and inclusive company that celebrates and develops individuals of all backgrounds. We are an equal opportunity employer and encourage all applicants.
