Here at Hometap, we’re collaborative, passionate, and always ready to roll up our sleeves to create solutions that help people get more out of homeownership — and out of life. Our first product, a home equity investment, gives homeowners the opportunity to quickly access the equity they’ve built in their home to pay for what’s most important to them, from handling debt to finally making much-needed renovations, without taking on debt.
We work hard, and have some fun along the way, too. You don’t have to take our word for it: The Boston Globe and Comparably have recognized us as a great place to work, and we’ve been honored for our commitment to innovation in the fintech space by Inc., HousingWire, and more!
In case you need any more convincing, we also provide competitive compensation, healthcare coverage, unlimited PTO, a generous share package, and a strong culture with plenty of opportunities for team-building and camaraderie.
Interested in joining us on our mission to make homeownership less stressful and more accessible? We’d love to talk.

We are seeking a Senior Fund Accountant to lead Hometap’s Fund and Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) accounting. You’ll work with third party administrators and internal stakeholders to ensure that Hometap’s funds are managed accurately and efficiently. You’re a great fit for this role if you bring strong experience doing all aspects of a fund close (from reconciling cash to partnership allocations), can balance working in a fast-paced environment with maintaining quality, and are eager to work cross-functionality to help business partners better and more quickly utilize fund related reporting.

  • Work with Hometap’s third-party fund administrators to resolve open items and ensure capital calls, distributions, and quarterly reporting are completed accurately and on time
  • Partner with independent third party valuation firms to value assets (e.g. “mark to market” or “mark to model”)
  • Perform internal shadow accounting for intra-period reporting, and to reconcile against books and records maintained by administrators
  • Prepare audit and tax compliance liaison deliverables, in conjunction with Accounting Manager and VP of Finance
  • Collaborate cross functionally to incorporate fund and SPV reporting into operating company models and management reporting
  • Work with VP of Finance to plan new entity launches and onboard new entities
  • Prepare daily treasury activity
  • Diligently seek opportunities for improvement in systems and processes
  • Support Operating Company accounting on an as-needed basis

What you’ll bring:

  • 4+ years of fund accounting experience, in-house or at a fund accounting firm
  • “Full-stack” experience doing all aspects of fund closes (cash, valuations, holdings, expenses, partnership allocations, financial and account statements, etc.)
  • Deep knowledge of accounting principles (for example, how a transaction impacts the Balance Sheet, Statement of Operations, and Cash Flow Statement)
  • Strong analytical and Excel-based analytical skills; comfortable working with large datasets
  • Ability to successfully operate in a fast-paced, dynamic environment experiencing growth and expansion
  • History of working cross-functionally and building positive relationships with people and teams across a diverse organization
  • Excellent prioritization skills and ability to balance both short-term and long-term objectives
  • Curiosity and strong critical thinking skills
  • A good sense of humor, a rock-solid work ethic, and exceptional attention to detail
  • Based in Boston preferred – remote work day-to-day with the ability to come into the office 1-2x month
