About the role

Company Description

Homebase (YC W21) is a real estate technology company from Singapore that aims to solve one of the biggest socio-economic problems of our generation: Homeownership. 

Our obsession with execution excellence, asymmetric access to international capital, and relentless, world-class talents are the unfair advantages that made us the most valuable proptech in Vietnam within a mere span of just 2+ years.

Much of what we do is novel and has never been done before. From structuring multi-million dollar M&A deals to building groundbreaking technology, we’re re-creating the financial, technological, and operational future of real estate.

We are backed by leading global investors, such as  Y CombinatorVinaCapital, Goodwater CapitalAce & Co., and Antler; and are advised by founders and senior executives from some of the world’s largest and most successful tech companies, such as AlibabaPropertyGuruOpendoor, and Divvy Homes.

Homebase’s team hails from prestigious international organizations, such as Harvard, Stanford, McKinsey, Goldman Sachs, etc. We believe in hiring only top talents and historically accept only ~1% of all applicants. As a company, we are forward-looking and embrace diversity and remote-working.
