About Morty

Morty empowers homebuyers to make smarter, informed decisions about their home purchase. We pair proprietary technology with industry expertise to provide step-by-step transparency around the complicated mortgage process, while educating homebuyers on common questions relating to affordability, mortgage rates, and the various parties involved throughout the process.

Job Description

Morty is on a mission to revolutionize the outdated mortgage industry by letting people shop, compare, and close on any mortgage from any lender, completely online. Purchasing a home is the largest, most important financial transaction of most people’s lives. We believe getting a mortgage should be just as simple, modern, and transparent as buying anything else online. We’re building the first-ever, fully digital marketplace to make this possible - Kayak, but for mortgages.
 
Founded by a diverse team of mortgage industry vets and software engineers, Morty is a Techstars Barclays NYC ‘16 company backed by an amazing group of investors and advisors who share our vision to empower consumers and democratize mortgages.
 
Engineering
We’re rebuilding the mortgage stack from the inside out. Engineering is our core competency and competitive advantage. As an early member of our small engineering team, you’ll have the opportunity to build out core functionality, make important design and architecture decisions, rapidly build new features to support customers, and shape the future of the product. We're excited by the challenges of building a robust, scalable mortgage platform that can serve thousands of consumers and millions in loan transaction volume each day.
 
Who We’re Looking For 
  • Real-word development experience, solid computer science fundamentals, and mastery of at least one programming language (Python a plus).
  • Strong quantitative skills, with some knowledge or experience in finance a plus (but you don’t have to know anything about mortgages–we’ve got that covered!)
  • Willing and able to learn quickly, whether it be cool, new technology we’re building ourselves, or arcane, ill-conceived data formats we’re forced to integrate with.
  • Strong product mindset and willingness to collaborate with marketing and operations teams to shape the product and user experience.
  • You enjoy creating elegant solutions, but you’re agile and pragmatic enough to know when and how to make compromises in order to ship faster and continuously iterate.
 
Technologies We Use
  • Python, Django, REST Framework, Celery, Redis, PostgreSQL
  • Javascript (ES6), React, MobX, HTML, SCSS, Webpack
  • Amazon Web Services, Docker
