Sales & Business Development

Come help us change residential real estate investing for the better!
Backflip is a venture-backed FinTech company that empowers anyone to improve their life and their neighborhood through real estate investing. To do that, we need people who are inspired to reimagine and rebuild an outdated and unbalanced system; to support and celebrate America’s local entrepreneurs (our "Members").
Backflip is seeking a lending Account Executive with strong sales and customer success skills to grow Backflip’s financing business. This team member will drive new users to Backflip’s free property analysis app, work with them through loan closing, and retain them as a valued repeat borrowers. This person ideally brings sales experience and has already developed a substantial client base. They will report to the Head of Sales.
This is a rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor (~50 person team) working directly with executives in a fast-paced and well-capitalized startup (Series A).
All Backflip positions are remote (US based). Like the people we serve, we believe being free to create wherever you’re most inspired is one of life’s greatest joys. It’s better for individuals, for the community, and for fostering great work to emerge. With our work-from-anywhere approach, Backflip brings together a diverse team of individuals, with passions for innovation, art, coding, AI, data, finance, film, real estate, the environment, learning and teaching. Together, we're moving fast.
This candidate will champion Backflip’s culture & core values:
-Raise the standard of what is possible
-Embrace being the novice to become the master
-Work only with those who want the best for us
-Communicate quickly, naturally and with radical candor
-Test new things to invent and challenge the status quo
-Today, nay now!
