Help us build the future of home ownership and financial well-being

Founded in 2019, we've been challenging the status quo of the antiquated mortgage servicing industry by developing modern solutions that put homeowners first. We’re a small, ambitious, and humble team. And we’re growing fast.

Our values

These values guide us in everything we do, and we’re looking for more people who embody these values to join our team.

No matter your role, your strengths, or your opinions on how we get there, we are here to serve Valon’s mission. We believe we can only accomplish this mission as a team and, as such, we must always optimize globally and do what’s right for Valon.

We believe in thinking deeply, making decisions methodically, and precise communication. We expect every decision to come with a clearly explained objective function and a framework for analysis. We believe in taking everybody’s opinions into account and plugging it into the best decision-making apparatus.

Owners take pride in their homes; we bring that mentality to everything we do at Valon. As an owner, you don’t cut corners, serve others, think long term, and do whatever it takes, including (literally!) taking out the trash.

We believe in progress over perfection. It’s important that we execute with quality and iterate quickly. At the same time, we operate in a highly regulated space so we can’t sacrifice excellence for agility.

We practice transparency for our homeowners and each other—we believe the truth and shared context best empower everybody to make the most informed decision. We strive for constant and honest feedback in all directions to promote growth, accountability, knowledge sharing, and diversity of perspective.

Your physical and mental health are top priority. We’ll cover the majority of the premiums on low deductible medical, dental, and vision insurance plans, and we offer flexible sick days so that you can take the time you need.

We believe everyone at Valon should feel ownership over their work, so we offer equity packages so that you’ll grow along with us.

We provide multiple company holidays and a generous vacation policy for trips, time with loved ones, and recharging. You have our support to be fully offline and unavailable.

All employees get a laptop, custom accessories, and ergonomic equipment. You’ll also get access to commuter benefits to help you get to and from work.

Parents can use their time off flexibly over the first year (12 weeks off for both birthing and non-birthing parents).
