We’re on a mission to turn the tide of homeownership.
Who we are.
We built Maxwell to change the game for small and midsize mortgage lenders — whether you originate $300M or $3B. Today our digital mortgage platform powers hundreds of mortgage lending institutions nationwide, from non-depository mortgage banks and credit unions to brokers and community banks. We work to make them (and their employees) the real heroes who help homeowners to achieve the American Dream. And we’re just getting started.
Maxwell was founded in 2015 by homebuyers who were shocked by the complexity of the mortgage process for borrowers and lending teams alike. Somehow, in the mix of paperwork, points, and process, the humanity and emotion of the largest financing decision of a person’s life had been lost. After spending a year with over 1,000 mortgage professionals, our founders realized we needed to focus on making the people who make a difference really shine. Now, we employ a world-class team of software experts and mortgage professionals who strap on our boots every morning to do just that. We’re privileged that our company has been recognized by HousingWire, Progress in Lending, MReport, and others as a leading innovator in our industry.
At the end of the day, we are a committed team doing honest work that really matters in the real world — one lender, one borrower, one homeowner at a time. And it works.
Our values guide the decisions we make and how we treat each other and our partners. At Maxwell, our values represent what we stand for and they continuously influence our culture, our work ethic, and our hiring.
We execute with speed, intensity, and attention to the details that matter. We don’t let the desire for perfection get in the way of excellence.
We are all owners of the company, so we act like it. We balance every stakeholder’s needs in decision-making, we communicate intentionally, and we’re obsessed with our customers’ success.
We experiment constantly. We always, always start by walking a mile in our users’ shoes to understand their problems so we can solve them. We ask great questions before assuming answers and always focus on the future.
We consider the impact of our decisions and behaviors on others. We express gratitude as a mode of work towards our teammates and customers. And, whenever we get the chance, we laugh and have fun together.
We are always honest and transparent, from our pricing to our product roadmap. Our opinions are strong but loosely held, because we know ego can get in the way of the best outcomes. We accept and learn from our failures.
Benefits that make a difference.
We believe top talent should be paid appropriately. We provide competitive pay to make sure salary is never an issue.
We’re all owners at Maxwell, and we mean it. Every employee receives equity in the company.
15 days paid time off plus sick days, all 10 major holidays, and 1 floating holiday for your birthday, religious holiday, or other special day of your choice.
Top-tier insurance plans to select from along with a FSA and HSA where you can set aside pre-tax money for out-of-pocket medical expenses.
Where we call home.
Maxwell is proud to call Denver, CO home, but we don’t just appreciate local talent. We look for and hire great talent across the country as remote teams and prioritize remote “hubs” of Minneapolis/St. Paul and Dallas/Ft. Worth to build Maxwell culture and interpersonal relationships.
