Head of Funding
- Operations & Finance
- Sydney, AU
We’re a mission-driven, award-winning fintech that’s focused on solving one of the greatest social challenges of our generation: housing inequality. We’ve built a wonderful team, grown from 0 to $13B+ worth of applications, helped families experience homeownership, and raised $31 million Series A from Square Peg and The Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
OwnHome in a nutshell:
🎯 Impactful mission - Homeowners retire with 20x the wealth of renters and homeownership is at risk of becoming hereditary. We’re closing this gap!
🎯 Great people - Small but mighty team of values-aligned people (we just had our team offsite in Bali together)
🎯 Incredible investors - Square Peg, The Commonwealth Bank and others as part of $31 million Series A
We’re looking for an experienced Head of Funding to join us at OwnHome. In this role you would be shaping the capital structure of a high-growth company, creating new, innovative solutions to the financing of homeownership - forging the creation of a new asset class in Australia! You would lead the management of 3rd-parties (accountants; lawyers) to support the ongoing effectiveness and scalability of OwnHome’s capital structure, including structuring of debt facilities to ensure resilience for OwnHome and our customers through property and economic cycles.
You’re obsessed with details and can operate independently but support a thriving, fast-paced team. You are confident negotiating and advocating for OwnHome and you have a knack for building detailed analytics and reporting. You’re also a strategic thinker who can support the product team on new pricing structures across different markets, assets and customer groups.
You have experience in structured finance or real estate and will have worked on debt transactions or structuring that have supported real estate transactions, fintechs or warehouse/securitisation. You will have a solid understanding of funding mechanisms, including warehouse facilities, swap markets, and experience with financial modelling techniques and valuation methods used by lenders. You can speak their lingo! (ie. the 5 C’s of credit).
What we think you would enjoy - using your capital markets and finance expertise to transform the financial future of millions of Aussies. A creative, driven and supportive environment with a wealth of opportunities to succeed—and be recognised for doing so. We’re looking for someone with excellent people skills, a sharp eye for detail and an anti-fragile mindset to help us support thousands of Aussies in buying their OwnHome!
