Job Description

Trellis Housing Finance Limited

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, home ownership 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.

In addition to supporting our business needs, you will have the chance to have a public impact on multiple open source communities making technology more accessible to all.

You will partner with our business analysts, operations team, and risk team to create and extend front-end UIs for our public website, ERP, and core banking platform using Angular/TypeScript and JavaScript.

  • Create automated unit and integration tests to ensure quality
  • Assist data analytics team with data visualization and reporting
  • Assist communications and marketing teams with web and communication design
  • Work under limited supervision with considerable latitude for personal initiative

  • Front-end web development using Angular, AngularJS, or React
  • Working knowledge of Bootstrap and Webpack or equivalent
  • Version control with git
  • Interfacing with external REST APIs
  • Strong written, verbal, and organizational skills (English)
