Join a leading fintech company that’s democratizing real estate investing for all.
Fintor was founded with a simple idea: real estate investing markets should be accessible to all, not just the wealthy. Fintor is a mobile app to buy and sell fractional shares in real estate properties with as little as $5 per share within a few taps. We enable everyone to have access, liquidity, and clarity to the real estate markets that have traditionally been available to a selected few. Just as we focus on our customers, we also strive to create an inclusive environment where our employees can thrive and do impactful work. You will be joining as one of the first employees at a fast growing startup backed by some of the most recognizable investors including 500 Startups, Graphene Ventures, Hustle Fund, celebrities like Manny Khoshbin, and more. We share the same investor as Robinhood, Lyft, Facebook, Snapchat, Udemy, Canva, Venmo and many more unicorns.
