Come help us change residential real estate investing for the better!
Backflip is a venture-backed real estate FinTech company that supports entrepreneurs to acquire and renovate single family homes, thereby reinvigorating the housing supply and their local communities. The company offers purpose-built technology and capital products to source, analyze and finance residential real estate investments. Backflip is an all-in-one platform providing entrepreneurs with the technology, data, and financing strategies that allows them to scale their businesses.
Backflip is seeking a talented and experienced Senior Analyst to join our team. The Senior Analyst will be responsible for analyzing complex data sets, generating valuable insights, and providing data-driven recommendations to support strategic decision-making. This role requires strong analytical skills, attention to detail, and the ability to communicate findings effectively.
This is a rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor (~60 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!

What You’ll Do:

  • Conduct in-depth data analysis to identify trends, patterns, and key insights
  • Develop and maintain company-wide reporting
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to gather requirements and provide analytical support
  • Prepare and present reports, visualizations, and dashboards to communicate findings
  • Identify opportunities for process improvement and contribute to data-driven decision-making
  • This role will evolve as the company grows; there will be various tasks that fall outside of the responsibilities above.


  • Bachelor's degree in related field and 5+ years of relevant experience
  • Proven experience as an analyst, preferably in a startup environment
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Excellent communication and presentation abilities
  • Ability to work effectively both independently and in a team environment
  • Expert proficiency in SQL and at least one visualization framework
  • Proficiency in git/github
  • Proficiency in Python
  • Startup experience is a plus

People That Thrive at Backflip Have…

  • A desire to learn and grow with the company; propensity to “think like an owner”
  • An execution-oriented “one-team” mindset with motivation and scrappiness to achieve objectives
  • The ability to multi-task with exceptional time management, prioritization and attention to detail
  • An entrepreneurial mindset and a passion for technology and innovation
  • A bias for action; inclined to deploy rapid testing and iteration cycles
  • The ability to work effectively in a small, relatively unstructured office environment (we work remotely)
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills with appropriate urgency to various audiences
  • Strong self-motivation, are coachable and highly collaborative; take ownership of tasks and pride in work product
  • High integrity; are dependable, accountable, humble and respectful
