Accounting Specialist


New York, NY

Morty is the world's first fully digital, fully automated mortgage marketplace.

About Morty

Morty is on a mission to revolutionize the outdated mortgage industry by letting people shop, compare, and close any mortgage option from any lender, completely online. Purchasing a home is the largest, most important financial transaction of most people’s lives. We believe getting a mortgage should be just as simple, modern, and transparent as buying anything else online. We’re building the first-ever, fully digital marketplace to make this possible.

Morty was founded by a diverse team of mortgage industry vets and software engineers and is supported by an incredible group of investors and advisors including Thrive Capital, Lerer Hippeau, Prudence, and Techstars who have backed companies like Oscar, Compass, Lemonade, Slack, Airbnb, Stripe, Dropbox, Casper, and Warby Parker. 

In 2021, Morty raised a $25 million Series B financing round, with a valuation of $150m – check out our feature in Forbes and this blog post from CEO and co-founder Nora Apsel to read more!
