Fundrise is an investment platform offering direct access to high-quality private market real estate investments. We use our technology and deep expertise to make it easier than ever for anyone to build a stronger portfolio.

We started with $325,000 from 175 investors. That's what it took to become the first U.S. company in history to successfully crowdfund a real estate project back in 2012. Fast forward to today: we now manage more than $1 billion in assets for more than 150,000 investors and have invested in more than $5 billion worth of real estate.

Our mission is to build a better financial system by empowering the individual. That means expanding access, lowering costs, and improving quality. The result (so far) is: investments that were once primarily reserved for billion-dollar endowments and sovereign wealth funds are now available to investors of all sizes at the touch of a button.

But there's more to do. Institutional investors still hold a major advantage over individual investors when it comes to owning the best private real estate investments — for now. That's where you come in.

We are looking for a Payroll & HR Compliance Manager who has deep experience with multi-state payroll and a strong understanding of federal, state, and local employment laws to join our rapidly growing team.
