Senior Software Engineer

Website Zibo

Company Description

Zibo is transforming the real estate financial market for rental property investors by becoming their go to platform that radically improves their experience with financial services and property insights.

Zibo sits at the intersection of fintech and proptech and is tackling a very large, but under-served market that still relies on antiquated, analog and opaque financial services. It is a digital financial services platform that provides landlords with the competitive banking, payment, lending, and insurance products they need to buy, grow, manage and sell properties. Our innovative, one-stop-shop for landlords simplifies the application process and eliminates the need to enter data more than once across products or time.

Data is at the core of our model – with insights from landlords, properties, and tenants, we create relevant offers for our customers and partners. We provide tools, benchmarking and predictive analytics on key operating and market metrics to help landlords improve their operating profit and cash flows.

By empowering independent landlords with competitive financial services and transparent information, Zibo enables them to improve returns, grow their businesses, simplify their lives and provide quality housing for millions of people.

Zibo brings together a unique team that includes some of the best real estate fintech investors in the industry (Canaan, QED, SVB Capital and Khosla Ventures) + a founding team that combines one of the world’s leading real estate tech entrepreneurs (Gregor Watson of Roofstock, Dwell and 1Sharpe), an experienced real estate investor and credit expert (Rob Bloemker of Dwell and 1Sharpe) and Chris Hsu — a proven leader with deep experience in software, data analytics and financial services — as the CEO.
