Staff Backend Engineer
Fractional is a social platform for fractional ownership of investment properties. We’re on a mission to open the private real estate market to everyone by making it inclusive, educational, collaborative, and fun.
We're well funded with backing from CRV, Y Combinator, Will Smith, Kevin Durant, Unusual Ventures, among others such as founders and leaders of Affirm, Compass, Blend, and Sprout Social.
Democratizing residential real estate investing is just the start, and we’d love to have you join us to build the future of investing.
What We Are Building
Getting started with real estate is an expensive and arduous task, we make it easy. Options are very limited and expensive for most - you either lack the cash and know how to do things yourself or you're stuck with the high fees and limited opportunity that funds offer. We believe that with the right tools and guidance anyone can choose to own, invest, and grow real assets how they want. Our mission is to empower the next generation of real estate investors and operators by building the best products they need to do their best work.
