An Insider's view of HomeLight

What are some social events your company does?

HomeLight has offered virtual social activities during this global pandemic that accommodate everyone! I have been apart of our companies' first virtual company retreat and holiday party, happy hours, yoga sessions, and cooking classes! It has been a vital way for us to be together without being together.

Ashley

Florida Branch Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Each day begins with stand-up at 10:30a.m. and we might have another meeting or two sprinkled in throughout the day. Most of the day is dedicated to engineering focus time, which I love. Still, everyone on the team is fairly interruptible, so it's easy to have quick, ad-hoc technical discussions when you get stuck or need a second opinion.

Raquel

Software Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Increasing transparency and removing inefficiencies in the home purchase transaction is at the core of how HomeLight Closing Services makes decisions. Deeply understanding the pain points of our clients and real estate agents as part of the design process motivates us to build products and processes that go beyond industry conventions.

Ajit

Head of Operations, Closing Services

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

With HomeLight, maintaining an open line of communication is the first key to a fruitful partnership. As a recruiter, I am glad to be working with hiring teams that have goals that align with mine: to hire the best person for the job. Effectively communicating means knowing when to speak, and when to listen.

Sr. Recruiter
