Our
Future

Over the next 30 years our homes are going to be transformed - driven by powerful trends such as digitisation, decarbonisation and decentralisation. Hometree intends to be the definitive partner for homeowners throughout this transformation - offering an increasing ecosystem of home & financial services products which empower homeowners to live sustainably & hassle-free.

Why should you consider coming to work at Hometree?

You want to spend your time working on something that really matters

At Hometree, we believe our homes are too important to be another source of stress in our lives, and that despite the fact that our homes are an enormous source of greenhouse gas emissions, we shouldn’t have to vastly change our lives to do our bit for the environment.

By coming to work at Hometree, you will get to work on both of these challenges - helping homeowners to keep their homes warm, safe and working, and increasingly more sustainable and better for the environment.

You want to develop your career - fast!

Hometree is run by an entrepreneurial management team who don’t care about years of experience as much as they care about values fit, work ethic, and desire to add value to the business along the way.

Because of the fact that we are growing rapidly, there is a lot of opportunity for people to grow their own careers very fast - and there are numerous examples of people who joined Hometree in junior roles who now run their own teams.

Willing to work hard to develop your career at lightspeed - Hometree is the right place!

You want to be part of a high performing team

Hometree brings together a highly diverse team of people from leading start-up’s, financial services companies, private equity firms, consulting firms and a lot more. We like great individuals, but only when they love being part of a high-performing team.

Our culture is sown together by our values - or as we like to call them, our ROOTS - which are outlined below.

Special things get achieved by special teams - and we believe we have the people, the culture and the environment to offer the best people the career opportunity of their lives.

Our ROOTS are strong here at Hometree. They guide our culture day by day.

Radical Candour

Be respectful, but tell it as it is - directly & honestly

Ownership

Act like an owner - if not you, then who?

Obsessed

Be obsessed about giving the customer the right outcome

Trust in Teamwork

Build high-performing, happy teams

Speed

Make fast, data-driven decisions
