Who We Are

We’re building the future of real estate — today.

HomeLight is the essential technology platform used by hundreds of thousands of homebuyers and sellers to partner with top real estate agents and win at any step of the real estate journey, whether that’s finding a top agent, securing a competitive mortgage, or ensuring on-time, easy close.

HomeLight facilitates billions of dollars of real estate on its platform every year. Our vision is a world where every real estate transaction is simple, certain, and satisfying for all.

We pride ourselves on our company culture – but don’t just take it from us. We’ve been recognized as a best place to work by Forbes. We’re committed to diversity both internally and externally through programs such as our Black Real Estate Agent Program with NAREB. Our team breaks barriers every day while staying committed to HomeLight's goals and core values, which is a crucial element to our shared success.

HomeLight is looking for an FP&A Analyst to join our growing Finance team. As an FP&A analyst, you will help drive the Company’s core financial forecasting and reporting, as well as work closely with senior executives and department leaders across the organization to evaluate, plan, execute, and measure strategic business initiatives. The ideal candidate has experience creating high caliber analyses in a fast-paced environment with the ability to operate independently and as a member of a tightly knit team.

This role will be an integral member of our growing FP&A team and will be based out of our San Francisco office with some work from home component. (2-3 days a week, Hybrid)
