Job Description

This is a very exciting opportunity to work alongside the founding members of an organization to establish and scale a truly innovative Digital Affordable-Housing Green Mortgage Bank, that strives to become the benchmark of how to galvanize social development and transform societies within a short period of time.   

Background  

Pakistan is faced with a housing shortage of 10 million currently growing by 1 million every year. The population, 80% without a bank account, has been starved off house financing solutions for years. Pakistan’s housing finance-GDP ratio is one of the lowest in the world – 0.25% (South Asia: 3%, Bangladesh: 3%, India: 11%).   

Trellis’ mission is to fill this gap by providing affordable green mortgage solutions to low and middle-income groups in Pakistan. This is expected to significantly boost financial inclusion, homeownership and economic activity in the country. The senior management team has a combined experience of over 50 years in international banking, hedge funds, capital markets and financial technology. 

As a new company, we need self-motivated, driven generalists with senior-level experience. For driven individuals, this role provides a unique opportunity to grow rapidly and work with many types of technologies. We will heavily rely on cloud-native, open source technologies with the intent to give back and make a difference.
