Glide’s mission is to make the process of buying and selling homes faster, simpler, and safer for real estate agents and their clients. We serve an industry larger than any other, streamlining the most important financial transaction of a consumer’s lifetime.
Our platform is used by more than 50,000 real estate agents on over $100B worth of home sale transactions each year. Agents choose Glide because we focus on making their lives simpler, helping them deliver outstanding customer service, stay compliant and grow their businesses.
Our culture is based on moving fast, putting customer needs first and supporting one another to accomplish incredible results. We operate as an independent subsidiary of Compass (NYSE: COMP), allowing us to combine the agility of a startup with the resources of a public company.
Join Glide because you want to do your best work, to collaborate with amazing people and to make a lasting impact at a pivotal moment in people’s lives.
About the Role
Compass’ Glide Division is building a collaborative transaction platform that streamlines all of the work that goes into buying and selling homes. Unlike other teams at Compass, Glide is a platform investment for the entire industry and is intended to be used by all real estate agents and clients, not just ones from a particular brokerage.
Your job will be to take previously manual or tedious tasks and turn them into guided experiences in our software. Manual tasks today include preparing paperwork, booking appointments with vendors, and installing cable/internet. What we’ve built is resonating and we have a chance at becoming the dominant standard for how transactions get done.
