Acquisitions Analyst


Up&Up is building a new way to live where renters earn like owners.

Instead of having a large portion of their cash stuck in a security deposit and making their landlords rich by paying off their mortgage, our customers have the opportunity to fractionally own their home and generate the exact same returns as an owner. At the end of their lease they can purchase the home or cash out.

Our guiding North Star is building a product where we’d be just as excited to be a renter as a property owner, not one that charges for the feeling of ownership without the benefits.

If we’re successful in changing the way people live before they own, we’ll unlock a decade of compounding wealth creation that will drastically change our customers’ financial futures.
To pull off this ambitious mission, we’ve built an incredible early team and been backed by Founders Fund, Khosla Ventures, and strategic angels from Opendoor, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, and Millennium.

What You'll Get From Up&Up:
  • The opportunity to join a mission-driven company that is working on a novel solution to a major problem

  • A team with a diverse set of expertise across Real Estate, Finance, Sales, Engineering, and Data Science
  • Competitive compensation and thoughtfully designed perks
  • Comprehensive benefits (medical, dental, vision, commuter, 401k, etc)
