About Homeward

Buying a home should be an exciting milestone. But all too often, it’s stressful, especially in a competitive market or when you’re buying and selling at the same time. So we’re redesigning the homebuying experience. We’re a fast-paced real estate startup that empowers agents to help homebuyers buy with cash. We buy homes on behalf of our partners’ clients with our cash, then the client buys the home back from us.

Founder and CEO Tim Heyl, a 10-year industry veteran and owner of one of the fastest-growing agent teams in the country, started Homeward in 2018. In fact, he bought our first customer’s home with his own life savings. Today we offer two services — Buy with cash and Buy before you sell.

We’ve raised more than $160MM in equity capital from top-tier venture investors, including Norwest, Blackstone Alternative Asset Management, Adams Street, Javelin, and LiveOak. Our leadership team includes experts from the real estate, mortgage, and technology industries.

Homeward is looking for a Senior Salesforce Developer to join the team responsible for the design, implementation, and success of our Salesforce ecosphere.

Our Values


Whether we’re dealing with colleagues or customers, we follow The Golden Rule, treating others the way we want to be treated. It’s a simple rule, but it’s also significant: we don’t prioritize money or growth over people, and we practice empathy at every opportunity.


We work in tech and build solutions for real estate. Both are fast-paced and stressful industries. So it’s important that  we focus on the larger objective rather than rushing from one task to the next. If something is out of scope, we say “No.” If something feels rushed, we pump the brakes. This calm focus helps us create solutions our customers love.


Big problems require big solutions. We look at our customers’ experience holistically, and recognize that solving them requires collaboration across teams. This approach extends to cooperation among our three affiliate companies — Homeward, Homeward Mortgage, and Homeward Title — and results in a better homebuying experience.

An Insider's view of Homeward

What's something quirky about your company?

Our culture blends tech with mortgage and title, two traditional industries. So you might hear a product team member say, “Tell me more about title insurance.” And someone from title will say, “Remind me what an MVP is.” It’s humbling to marry expertise from both of those worlds and it reminds us that we all have a lot to learn from each other.


Lifecycle Marketing

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Our goal as a leadership team is to help our teams understand shared goals, then support them in defining sub-goals, how to measure success, & the best practices to drive projects forward. By aligning on outcomes & successful project execution, teams can quickly experiment & learn, allowing them to explore novel solutions to deliver better results.


VP, Product

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We have common goals & success metrics that we point to at the company level, but there’s no single common denominator for success at the individual level. We believe there are many paths to get to the “right” solution, and so we encourage employees to leverage their unique strengths and take reasoned, and calculated risks.
