People Operations Generalist



People & HR, Operations
Posted on Thursday, January 25, 2024
Our people are our most valuable asset.
Renofi is looking for a People Operations Generalist to join a fast-growing, early-stage startup. As the backbone of our People Team, this is an opportunity to guide and shape the culture of a leanly staffed but rapidly expanding organization.
You’re someone who cares deeply about people, culture, and what makes a group of good people a high performing team. You like supporting a goal-oriented organization. The phrase “that’s not my job” gets on your nerves. You have some administrative and HR experience, but you’re eager to dive in: learning the ins and outs of benefits plans, bringing new employees up to speed, planning events and activities to bind the team together, researching best practices, getting your teammates paid and paperwork squared away, and helping out on a range of projects across a variety of subject matters. You are ambitious, dedicated, and forward-looking; you want a career in HR and aspire to someday be the Head of People for a technology company.

  • Coordinate and facilitate onboarding and new hire orientations
  • Coordinate and conduct reference and background checks
  • Conduct annual benefits open enrollment
  • Generate HR and custom data reports
  • Work collaboratively with our Finance & Compliance teams on headcount planning, compensation, and employment best practices


  • Three to seven years of administrative experience
  • Proficiency in Human Resource procedures and policies
  • Excellent organizational and time-management skills
  • Devotion to confidentiality and protecting privacy
  • Teamwork skills
  • Enthusiasm for helping build a company culture and excitement for putting together company events

  • Startup experience a plus
RenoFi is committed to building a diverse and inclusive team. We believe various backgrounds and experiences contribute to our mission of transforming the renovation lending industry. If your experience doesn’t perfectly match the requirements, we encourage you to apply anyway and tell us why you’d be a great fit for this role!
The demand for home renovations has never been stronger, yet, it's surprisingly difficult for a new homeowner to renovate. It can take a decade to build up enough home equity and savings to pay for a major renovation. As a result, recent homeowners do a lot of financially-suboptimal things to compensate like borrow from their 401k, rack up credit card debt, and use high-interest personal loans. Or they just live unhappily for years in a home that doesn't meet their family's needs.
But by completing a major renovation, homeowners are increasing the value of their home. Professional real estate investors leverage this After Renovation Value (ARV) to roll the increase in value into new properties all the time. But there hasn't been a great way for homeowners to take advantage of this. If homeowners had an ability to borrow against the ARV, they could increase their borrowing power up to 10x.
To meet this need, RenoFi created a platform that enables homeowners to borrow funds from RenoFi approved lenders in the form of the first home equity loan purpose-built for renovations! Unlike standard home equity loans, RenoFi Loans use the value of your home post-renovation which lets you borrow the most money at the best possible terms. RenoFi is creating a full suite of renovation loan products to better suit the needs of today’s homeowners!
For homeowners, RenoFi makes it possible to renovate years earlier than might be otherwise feasible. For contractors, we empower the financing of renovations at the point of sale, reducing instances of scope reduction, and ensuring prompt payment. Our lender partners, most often credit unions, rely on RenoFi's platform to generate loans, create efficiencies, and grow membership. The lenders pay RenoFi for the new loans, which allows us to offer our services to homeowners for free. RenoFi is truly a win-win-win for everyone involved.
RenoFi is backed by some of the best startup investors in the world, including First Round Capital, NYCA Ventures, CMFG Ventures, and Canaan Partners.
RenoFi has been built from the start as a fully distributed team with an intentional focus on growing a strong team and culture that spans timezones and nationalities. Here's one fun example!
Please highlight any prior experience working remotely when applying. US or GMT-adjacent timezones will be prioritized.
RenoFi offers competitive cash and equity compensation. Some benefit offerings will vary from country to country. In the United States, we offer competitive health and retirement plans. All staff across the globe enjoy a flexible vacation policy.
