About PeerStreet

PeerStreet is an award-winning software platform for investing in real estate debt, acting as a two-sided marketplace that serves both investors and private lenders.

Founded in 2013, PeerStreet continues to grow at a rapid pace, and has already funded well over $2 billion in loans through our platform. We strive to ensure our best-in-class company culture grows with us by investing in our employees so they can perform at their best. And we walk the walk, with company equity, unlimited PTO, full health coverage, company-wide celebrations (in and out of the office), and more. So join us at our sunny headquarters (remotely) in El Segundo, CA, and help us transform the real estate investing industry—forever and for the better.

An Insider's view of PeerStreet

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

At PeerStreet, everyone works really hard to hit our goals and meet our objectives. Leadership trusts the team to do what is needed to get the job done, as highlighted through their offering of unlimited PTO. They trust that we know when to take the time off and when we need to be working to get the job done.


Group Product Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We have several-- but we see these as opportunities instead! Our goal is to disrupt an industry so our team is working on building technology to attract customers to a new way of doing business. One of our many visions for this is to create a private lending marketplace using technology.


Lead Program Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

At a fast growing startup like PeerStreet, there are way more interesting opportunities and challenges than there are people to work on them, So for us, growth is about connecting the unique interests of each individual to the opportunities that excite them the most. This allows for accelerated career growth compared to other companies.


Lead Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision for PeerStreet is to level the playing field between Wall Street and Main Street. That means making real estate debt as accessible and easy to invest in as stocks. The way we’re approaching the space results in lenders and borrowers getting better access to capital and more communities being renovated, one house at a time.



How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I think the key to collaboration is asking questions and then listening. Not coming to the table with ego or assumptions, but wanting to learn and understand and ensure my co-workers that we are all here to support each other.
