Job Description

We are:

RateGravity is a well-funded, Boston-based fintech startup that makes home financing more affordable and easier for homebuyers. The company was founded by former mortgage banking executives and technologists. Our innovative technology eliminates the need for the highly-commissioned mortgage broker and pairs consumers with the optimal lender, which saves consumers tens of thousands of dollars, weeks of hassle and ensures they get a fair deal.

Over the past 18 months, RateGravity has paired over $300mm in loans with lenders on our platform. RateGravity was a member of the 2017 Boston Techstars cohort, a Gold Winner of MassChallenge 2016, winner of the 2016 Harvard Real Estate Venture Competition, Mass TLC Innovative Tech of the Year 2017 Finalist and one of the 17 startups to watch in Boston in 2017 according to BostInno.

You are:

Someone who is motivated by helping people make big difficult anxiety ridden decisions. You are someone who is passionate about clearly communicating complicated information through the power of simple and professional looking design. There is a lot of smoke and mirrors in the mortgage space and RateGravity endeavors to do things differently by creating clarity for customers among their multiple loan options. To do this, you will work with our team to make our design feel professional, clearly describe what we do, and intuitively communicate complicated financial information in multiple formats (calculators, interactive graphs, basic data layout).

What you'll do:

-User experience and interface development for the company on everything from static web interfaces to interactive web interfaces on rategravity.com.

-Build out and iterate on interactive tools to help customers assess key decision points on their hard to understand home loan: How much they can afford, which loan product is best for them, how to assess a high fee vs low fee product.

-Help build a design culture at the company.

-Lead the visual overhaul of our evolving brand and have that reflected in our marketing and our product.

-Create a standardized style guide that we can use across our website.

-Work with our marketing team to develop consistent collateral online and offline.

-Work with our developers in CSS/HTML to refine designs to make them as good or better than the mocks you create. If skilled enough you can do the front end development yourself!

The opportunity:

We have an experienced founding team, well-connected mentors and investors, and operate in a huge market. This is a chance to join a small team and grow with it. You will have enormous impact on how users experience our company and its services. Being one of the first 10 employees, you will also have the opportunity to help shape our culture and development processes as we grow.

Benefits:

Health benefits including medical and dental
Paid vacation
