Company description

Certain Lending is a modern digital platform for brokering real-estate loans. We focus on a quietly large market: business-purpose loans originated to real-estate entrepreneurs representing ~15% of U.S. residential real estate. These are small businesses that acquire and re-develop properties, buy land and build homes, or purchase and improve commercial real estate. Compared to a legacy process that is stressful, fragmented and unreliable, Certain removes friction and boosts confidence through a common application, automated underwriting, and a Funding Backstop for real-estate entrepreneurs. (Think Common App meets Kayak for real estate loans).

Certain Lending was founded by former Palantir and Freddie Mac leaders. Certain Lending is backed by partners - Goldcrest, XYZ, 8VC, Founders Fund, Village Global and LeFrak - who invest early in great companies and want to transform industries. We know how to build a profitable business. We care deeply about creating a platform and delivering amazing products that expand affordable housing through successful real estate entrepreneurs.

You will help create a company where colleagues and clients are friends; creativity and entrepreneurship are encouraged; and individual accomplishments are celebrated and rewarded but success is shared.

We are located in San Francisco. The extrinsic stuff - salary, benefits, and perks - are attractive for a well-funded startup. We have significant runway, a solid business plan, and amazing backers. We care about the people around us and their families. We want the people who join us to be nice, driven, entrepreneurial colleagues and owners of Certain Lending and our success.
