Sr. Software Dev Engineer in Test (SDET)

We’re LendingHome. We’re on a mission to revolutionize the world of mortgages and put the power, and the keys, where they belong—in your hands.


The Team

Specifically, we are interested in senior software dev engineers in Test with a minimum of 3+ years experience that have played a key technical role in both the front and back-end of an operational business. We look for track records of clean and practical design where the focus is on doing things right and shipping code fast but not necessarily getting everything perfect. Strong teamwork is a must given the small tight-knit group. We have five ex-CTOs on the team so no level of experience or authority is too senior. As such compensation will be generous.
