CURRENT OPENINGS

Chief Financial Officer


About GROUNDFLOOR

Recently listed as Venture Atlanta’s 2018 “Top 10 Atlanta Companies to Watch, ” Groundfloor is one of the most promising growth-stage companies in the Southeast.

GROUNDFLOOR is an Atlanta-based fintech startup opening the market for peer-to-peer lending in real estate. The ideal candidate is motivated by the opportunity to build a distinctive brand, product and service that stands apart in a field of many that aim to reformat banking, finance and investing. As a company, we value and select for intellect, strategic thinking, authenticity and integrity.

Job Description

Startup Strategy & Operations: Assist the Chief Executive Officer in planning for and closing additional rounds of capital sufficient to develop and grow the company. Play a key role within senior management team to formulate strategy and manage operations.

Financial Operations: Develop, manage and evolve appropriate processes and controls for transactions to and from retail investors and borrowers. Properly account for transactions related to the origination and repayment of real estate loans. At scale, the operation will consist of tens of thousands of monthly transfers and hundreds of real estate transactions in 50 to 100 localities nationwide. Solutions must be tax compliant and efficient for highly scalable business operations.

Regulatory Compliance: In collaboration with the Executive Vice President of Legal & Regulatory Affairs, ensure compliance with relevant federal and state securities laws. We are currently qualifying an umbrella offering under Regulation A as one step along a more extensive regulatory roadmap. Our offering circular already exceeds 350 pages, including fully audited financials.

PRODUCT

GROUNDFLOOR takes private lending public. We offer access for non-accredited and accredited investors to participate directly in short-term commercial construction loans backed by residential property, hyper-fractionalized to $10, at yields of 5-26%.

Even for accredited investors, high minimum requirements for capital and expertise conspire with securities regulations to block the vast majority of investors from participating in the lucrative market for private lending in real estate. Leveraging our proprietary underwriting engine and innovative application of existing securities law, we solve the hunt for yield for over 250 million non-accredited investors in the U.S.

We are the only "crowdfunding" platform in real estate that offers 100% of its loans for participation by all.

WHY US?

At GROUNDFLOOR, we believe that the broadest, most inclusive capital markets win -- for its participants and for society at large -- for the same reasons, functioning in the same way that the Internet itself does. While "crowdfunding for real estate" is a hot market, we stand alone as the only platform open to participation by all, including non-accredited investors. We view ourselves as creating a consumer product in finance with the same scale of impact and implications as the online discount brokerage industry had when it arose in the 1980s and 1990s.

Our team has succeeded before together, creating and launching Republic Wireless, a highly successful wireless company, in 2010-12. Our investor group is strong, and very committed. It's not too late to have a big impact on the culture we're building. Join us!
