Head of Research & Investment Strategies



Posted on Tuesday, April 4, 2023
What we do and why we do it
As the leading end-to-end investment platform for single-family rental homes (SFR), our mission is to make real estate investing radically accessible, cost effective, and simple. We successfully merge our passion for helping investors build wealth through real estate with cutting edge technology that transforms the way they do it.
How it’s going (and growing)
With a talented team of 400+ Roofsters, our collaborative, can-do culture is what fuels our growth. Early last year we closed on our Series E, raising $240 million, and have offices in California, Texas, and New York as well as many remote opportunities. Our growth includes recent acquisitions of Great Jones (full-service property management), Stessa (financial management software) to empower customers with a seamless way to acquire, manage, and track their investment properties on one platform, and Rent Prep (tenant screening and placement service for landlords).
Under our roof
We get a lot of attention for our innovation—like being on the Forbes Fintech 50 and Red Herring 100—but we’re most proud of being recognized as a Great Place to Work® (Check out our reviews!). We’re nice, get things done, and have fun. We champion professional growth and work-life balance.
As the Head of Research & Investment Strategies, you will build a high-standards research competency at Roofstock and help its clients formulate and execute against the most compelling investment strategies in SFR.

In this role you will own the research agenda in tight collaboration with Roofstock’s Investment Services and Capital Markets teams and will develop significant authority internally and externally as an SFR expert. As such, you’d be expected to conduct ongoing monitoring and analysis of the overall investment environment and of SFR’s relative and absolute performance as well as produce regular outputs such as insights, white-papers, research studies, or data that can be used across the company, and externally, to articulate sound investment strategies and enhance Roofstock’s brand position in the SFR sector.

  • Join sales discussions to understand prospective client needs and then research, package, present, and defend specific investment strategies to their CIO, investment committees, analysts, and/or data scientists.
  • Produce pre-packaged investment strategies for house funds (such as Roofstock One) that compel adoption by intermediaries such as RIAs.
  • Conduct market research to keep Roofstock up to date on market trends and economic conditions.
  • Author and/or oversee the regular publishing of data, trends, research papers, etc. to support boosting Roofstock’s brand authority and accelerating sales velocity.

What You Bring With You:

  • A minimum of 15 years of experience, with several years working in a similar role.
  • Demonstrated success serving as the key influencer over an organization’s investment decisions (e.g., Investment Strategist, Head of Investment Strategy, Head of Research, Investment Portfolio Management or similar roles)
