Here at Hometap, we’re collaborative, passionate, and always ready to roll up our sleeves to create solutions that help people get more out of homeownership — and out of life. Our first product, a home equity investment, gives homeowners the opportunity to quickly access the equity they’ve built in their home to pay for what’s most important to them, from handling debt to finally making much-needed renovations, without taking on debt.
We work hard, and have some fun along the way, too. You don’t have to take our word for it: The Boston Globe and Comparably have recognized us as a great place to work, and we’ve been honored for our commitment to innovation in the fintech space by Inc., HousingWire, and more!
In case you need any more convincing, we also provide competitive compensation, healthcare coverage, unlimited PTO, a generous share package, and a strong culture with plenty of opportunities for team-building and camaraderie.
Interested in joining us on our mission to make homeownership less stressful and more accessible? We’d love to talk.

You’re a great fit for this role if you bring experience in a growing, fast-paced environment, are an expert at budgeting and forecasting, and are excited to partner across the business to impact the company’s financial strategic direction.

Finance is organized into three collaborative verticals: Accounting, Capital Markets Operations, and Strategic Finance.

  • Partner across the business to provide visibility into function-specific metrics, and to proactively uncover opportunities for improvement or change

What you’ll bring:

  • 3+ years of relatable finance experience in a fast growing, VC or growth-equity backed operating company, with a primary focus on FP&A
  • Experience owning the three-statement, long-term operating model – leading and driving cross-functional, collaborative budgeting processes
  • Solid experience with owning and defining best-in-class FP&A budgeting processes and structure
  • Strong analytical and Excel-based financial modeling skills; comfortable working with complex datasets to inform strategic decision making

  • Ability to successfully operate in a fast-paced dynamic environment experiencing growth and expansion
  • History of working cross-functionally and building positive relationships with people and teams across a diverse organization
  • Excellent prioritization skills and ability to balance both short-term and long-term objectives
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills along with evidenced ability to work well with and present to business partners
  • Curiosity and strong critical thinking skills
  • A good sense of humor, a rock-solid work ethic, and exceptional attention to detail

Bonus points:

  • Experience in a fintech or financial services company
  • Experience working with fund / waterfall modeling (e.g. IRR, carry / promote structures, asset leverage)
  • Comfort with FP&A / budgeting software
  • Based in New York or Boston highly preferred
