Why Divvy?

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 looking for a skilled front-end engineer to take ownership from start to finish on our consumer products. You'll be part of a small, but nimble engineering team taking on large, open-ended problems. You'll be working alongside sales, product and design.

  • Potential Projects

Buying one home is hard. Buying thousands of homes for thousands of people is an awesome challenge. For example:

  • 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.


  • Familiarity with modern frontend frameworks including React/Redux

  • Proficiency in Javascript, particularly ES6

  • Experience writing professional production code

  • Willingness to expand beyond the boundary of frontend code to build the best product


  • Competitive salary + equity

  • Full benefits (medical, dental, vision)

  • A beautiful dog-friendly office

  • Diverse, smart, and witty co-workers

VIEW JOBS 12/11/2019 12:00:00 AM 2020-03-10T00:00 About the role Newfront is looking for front-end engineers to help change the face of insurance by using technology to build incredible, unexpected, and delightful experiences for our clients. We are looking for people who share our passion and belief that the best technology is simple, beautiful, accessible, and usable. Using modern front-end technology (e.g. CSS-in-JS, React, Next.js, GraphQL) and design tools (e.g. Framer, Figma) we expect front-end engineers to fully represent users' needs and uphold product quality through close partnership with product, design, and user research. About the team We build products for 3 user groups – our clients, brokers, and the servicing team. Clients: We need to design a product that makes their current insurance coverage extremely clear and makes it quick and easy for them to request an update their coverage, get help, or make a claim. Brokers: We want to help them turn leads into sales. Insurance brokers are like a sales team in a traditional SaaS company. They need a dashboard that clearly communicates the status of all of their clients, tracks their leads, and shows incoming revenue. Servicing team: This team includes account managers and operations specialists responsible for providing stellar service to our clients. We currently have 2 product teams – The servicing team and the compliance team. These teams have areas of focus but they work across all of the user groups. We also have a core infrastructure team. About Newfront Insurance is a half trillion dollar market that plays a foundational role in our economy and society but is generally slow, archaic, and filled with paperwork. Backed by the world's leading investors, Newfront is building the modern insurance brokerage. We leverage technology to simplify the selling process for brokers and the buying process for clients. Our singular mission is to create the future of work for this massive industry. Newfront scales by hiring brokers who join with their book of business. Through automation and artificial intelligence, we eliminate paperwork and pay brokers a higher split of their commission revenue. We represent a paradigm shift in the industry and career path for tens of thousands of brokers. Newfront believes in empowering people rather than 'disrupting' them. In applying this belief, we've taken off like a rocket, seeing exponential growth across all key metrics. Newfront Insurance San Francisco CA
