About the job
Founded in 2019, Plunk is a data-driven fintech company with
a mission to help homeowners live their best lives through their homes. Our
team is made up of data scientists, engineers, product managers, financial
analysts, designers, storytellers, and most importantly–we’re a team passionate
about empowering homeowners.
For most homeowners, their net worth is largely tied to their
home. And while a home is first and foremost a place to live, it’s also an
investment. So through Plunk, we will help homeowners treat their homes like
investments. We will do this by providing data to homeowners about the value of
their home, and point them to the home improvement projects that are worth
investing in to drive their home value up. We will also help homeowners partner
with the right contractors, lenders and other experts to get the job done.
