Senior Backend Developer (PHP/Laravel/MySQL)

Published date Posted on Indeed on Aug 06, 2022 (13 d ago)

What is Invelo?
Invelo is a high-velocity SaaS CRM used by real estate professionals. The company was incubated by its sister company, Open Letter Marketing (OLM), which is one of the most respected direct-to-seller marketing companies within the real estate investment industry. Over the last few years, OLM identified a critical unmet need for their real estate investor clients. That need is a unified software platform to find prospects, manage leads and deliver marketing and this is exactly what Invelo does. Moreover, Invelo and OLM work hand-in-hand to create a turnkey servicing solution for real estate investors from start to finish. And, OLM's customer stronghold in this industry creates a consistent pipeline of customers for Invelo and vice-versa.

Unique Opportunity
As an early-stage company, Invelo provides an incredible opportunity for employees to directly impact the velocity at which the business grows. Employees will help develop the fundamental building blocks of the business and contribute to the vision of the organization through creativity, desire, and scrappiness. While still in its startup stage, Invelo has gained significant traction that is on track to be one of the most widely used real estate CRMs.
