Former founders (and longtime friends) who grew up in families of real estate agents, Nick and Jon deeply understood the problems that face the modern homeowner. To fix these problems, the two built a small team who set out to create a product that put homeowners at the center of the real estate process. That team became Aalto, and that product became the Aalto homeowner marketplace. Learn more about us here.
Aalto is a distributed team that works from our homes and our Bay Area HQ. Different roles have different in-person requirements. Apply to learn more about our flexible work options.
We understand that communication starts by listening, understanding different perspectives, and caring about others’ success. We don’t jump to conclusions or strategy — we pride ourselves on curiously understanding the problem. Only then can we build real solutions.
We deeply value the trusted relationships we have with our customers and each other. We’re open, honest, and candid every day. This foundation of trust helps us make better decisions, faster, and collaborate more effectively.
We work to revolutionize the way people buy and sell their homes, building for our customer — not for ourselves or our ego — because their success is our success. We’re never brash or bombastic, we let our unique and superior innovations speak for themselves.
We are learners, not knowers. Whether from innate curiosity or from setbacks along the way, we overcome problems with determination and never miss an opportunity to improve.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously, delighting each other and our customers every day through the personalized moments we create. We’re lighthearted, humble, and kind to each other.
