Job Description

About Auctm

At Auctm, we are building the operating system for the US real estate teams of the future (~$100B industry in just annual commissions). Despite being a huge market it is extremely fragmented with lots of inefficiencies.

The Problem: Selling expensive products and services to consumers is complicated. It's expensive, has poor user experience, lacks intelligence, etc. Imagine the last time you applied for a credit card, or a loan, or even bought a house. The legacy experience is often broken, spammy, and doesn’tfulfill our expectations in the digital age we live in. Businesses spend millions of dollars on marketing to generate leads, but convert very few leads, and aren’t able to give their consumers the right experience. Everybody loses. This is a massive inefficiency problem across all kinds of industries. This is what we are solving.

This is a complex problem - and we’re combining SaaS software, cutting-edge machine learning, and a focus on user-centric design, to deliver a best-in-class product. We’re helping these companies and teams move from static CRMs and legacy infrastructure to a data-driven future.

Launched Auctm in Oct 20 -- Rapidly grew from 0 to 55 teams in 6 months; will grow nearly 10x (~500 teams) by the next year.

Awarded the Top 10 Products by Inman - Largest US Real Estate Media. Second product ever in their history to get 5 stars rating.
