About Jia
image

Jia Finance Inc. is a leading provider of U.S. real estate mortgages for foreign nationals and the creator of the Global Digital Mortgage. Jia transforms an otherwise offline and low tech process into an entirely digital experience that slashes loan times to under 30 days (compared to an industry-standard 90 days).

As a world-class safe haven investment, U.S. real estate already attracts over $50B each year in international investment—yet conventional loans are simply not designed for the needs of international buyers, since they are a small percentage of all buyers. We see the extraordinary opportunity to meet both existing demand and build a growing market, and are delighted to lead the way with each new loan we write.

As foreign nationals ourselves, we are inspired every single day by the homebuyers whose lives we touch. After years of being ignored by conventional lenders, we are delighted to help fulfill the aspirations of a growing number of investors worldwide. Some of them have never been to the United States, while others lived here for years, or, in fact, still do. But for each of them, the investment we facilitate is a key to their long-term financial stability. And when these homebuyers win, so do all American homeowners. Foreign demand is a key pillar to strong home values, and we are proud to contribute to the resiliency and long-term growth of the American real estate industry.

Careers

We are as global as our product. From the very first day we built Jia as a globalized, distributed, work-from-anywhere company. We are a new kind of lender, untethered to place and unfettered by traditional loan practices. We are executing into an extraordinary opportunity and are always looking for team players looking to help make an outsized impact as we, together, revolutionize an entire industry. We have offices in Washington, DC, and Shanghai, China, but, really, the opportunity is everywhere. Don’t see a job opening that directly speaks to your skills? Reach out to us directly.
