Lead UI/UX Designer

SkySlope

In 2011 SkySlope started out in the third bedroom of our CEOs house with just him and two others. Every year since then weve experienced insane growth and after growing out of our previous 3 offices we have now settled into our new home in downtown Sacramento only two blocks away from the new arena and right in the heart of the action. The team has now grown from the original 3 to over 100 and our new space allows for us to aggressively move towards our goal of being 200 strong by the end of 2018.

By the power of an amazing product and tons of Red Bull we now have over 150,000 users that are supported by our 24/7 in-house support specialists. Weve been successful because we obsess over building cutting edge software that makes the Real Estate world a better place. 8 out of the top 15 Real Estate Brokerages in the nation are currently using software in order to go paperless and all 8 of them use our product. But, despite being happy with what weve achieved we know that as industry leaders in our space theres a lot of work left to be done. In October 2017 we announced that SkySlope will become a part of the Fidelity National Financial (NYSE: FNF) family. This partnership will allow us to not only scale faster than we ever have before, but it will also allow us to build exciting new products for our customers while maintaining the same broker and agent-centric approach that weve become known for over the years.
