About OwnHome 🏠

OwnHome’s mission is to turn renters into homeowners. We believe all Australians deserve the opportunity to build a life and family in the security of their own home, especially the 4.5m young Australians who don't own the home they live in. 

As property prices have skyrocketed, millions of Australians have been left behind with no clear path to homeownership - forced to put their dreams of homeownership on hold. As a result, renters are missing out on a critical wealth-building opportunity: owning a home.

At OwnHome, we're building an on-ramp to homeownership – one that overcomes crippling deposit hurdles, is more flexible, and an overall better fit for the modern Australian family.

About the role:

OwnHome is building its own platform that seamlessly integrates internal processes with customer interactivity on their homebuying journey. This platform allows OwnHome to streamline the digital homebuying and home owning experience for our customers, and provides huge efficiency gains to the OwnHome team in supporting our customers along the homebuying journey.

As a fullstack Software Engineer at OwnHome you will be:

  • A key architectural voice in designing and building a scalable frontend and backend for our homebuying platform.

  • Balancing rapid iteration speed with the overall stability, security, and modularity of our system.

  • Working closely with stakeholders in product, design, marketing, sales and operations to develop the best homebuying infrastructure that is aligned with the wider OwnHome vision

  • Mentoring colleagues and contributing to championing development processes, guidelines, and engineering practices for the team (e.g. Code Reviews).
