Over the past decade, millions of Americans have been forced to put their dreams of homeownership on hold. Home prices have outpaced wage growth while mortgage requirements continue to tighten. As a result, renters are missing out on a critical wealth-building opportunity: owning a home.
At Divvy, we're building an on-ramp to homeownership one that's more affordable, more flexible, and an overall better fit for the modern American family and it's working.
We're hiring a sales-inclined, operationally-minded manager to lead our home buying efforts.

It's your job to: 1) responsibly deploy capital, 2) uphold team SLAs, and 3) grow capacity with demand all in the service of getting our customers into their future homes.

We expect you to become an expert on our tool stack and sales process including developing a deep understanding of the home-buying process and the associated consumer psychology.
On any given day, you might: analyze team performance data, speak with a half-dozen agents to get a pulse on market heat, extend $1M+ of offers to buy homes, or cobble together the latest SaaS tool combination to automate a recurring demand.
