Today at Snapdocs, we’re working to perfect mortgage closings. If we succeed, more than five million families per year will gain simplicity and transparency as they make the biggest financial decision of their lives: buying a home.
Before we existed, nobody had the unique position within the real estate space to address the problems we’re solving. It’s complex and difficult work, and we measure success by how we’re impacting the industry and not by the number of headlines we generate.
Instead, we're making a difference and carefully building a team that shares our priorities—pragmatism, respect and empathy for our clients, and building honest products that improve our users’ lives. I hope you'll consider joining us on this journey.
– Aaron King, Founder & CEO
The principles that guide us.
We understand and respect the people of the mortgage business. We aim to understand the various struggles of each role, and to improve their lives.
We build for the future while anchoring our product in today. We strive to make an immediate difference in people's lives over innovating as a technical exercise.
We’re true to ourselves. We lead with intent, we’re honest, we do the right thing.
We do more with less by being creative about our resources to reach a thoughtful goal. This means we're always curious about the end result we're targeting and seeking innovative ways to get there.
Be a Team Player
We care about the success of others on our team, both internally and with our clients. We work together to achieve common goals.
Be Results Oriented
We measure the impact of what we do and hold ourselves accountable to results and outcomes.
We work from the heart of the Financial District in downtown San Francisco. Take a peek inside our office.

Notes from the team.
I’m always trying to find ways to make it easier for people to build on the frontend even if they’re not frontend experts, and sometimes, my solutions end up interfering with something. But it’s never like, “Oh, Leslie, you messed up.” I just ask questions, learn from the experience, and try a different path."
A lot of companies just want to disrupt things and blow everything up. For us, it’s more about understanding the challenges people are facing and how we can help them do better, faster work and make fewer errors."
Building a product in the real estate space was also exciting to me, because it’s one of the only major industries where technology hasn’t had a big impact."
Job Candidate FAQ
How much impact can I have?
We'll put it this way: Compared to other large industries, the real estate business is marked not by poor technology, but by a lack of technology. Most of what we've built is foundational—and everything that comes next will be, too. We are truly just getting started.
How stable is the business?
We’re currently helping to close more than 5% of all US mortgages (~50k per month), which generates significant revenue for us. We're also backed by reputable investors, including Sequoia Capital, SV Angel, and Y Combinator.
What’s your business model?
We're a SaaS company. Our customers span the real estate business, including title companies, settlement services, and lenders.
Can I work remotely?
We believe we’re most productive and our culture is strongest when everyone is solving problems together at our office in downtown San Francisco. But life happens and we’re all adults here. So when team members occasionally need to work outside the office we provide all the tools to make that seamless.
I just graduated from code bootcamp...
Today we're focused on hiring people with relatively high levels of experience. If this describes you, we encourage you to apply whether you've been through a bootcamp or not.
What are your benefits like?
We provide a range of excellent benefits from the standard stuff like 401(k), free lunches, and excellent health benefits to the not so standard like 4 weeks and a day of vacation, 4% match on your 401(k), and a 10 year exercise window on your options (!!) and our location in the heart of the Financial District in SF is super convenient.
