Wayhome

Join us on our mission to help people live where they love and love where they live!


We're a team of passionate and tenacious problem solvers, analysts and technical experts that shape the way people live and create their homes. 

Rooted in design, a warm showcase of life’s progression and possibilities, we're selecting homes with room for people to start to grow their lives. Our empathetic and excited nature drives us to do our best work, full of optimism and energy. Just like we're creating homes for our community, we instil a sense of family in everything we do, a place where everyone is accepted and valued.

Our vision

Home matters. It’s where we’re safe and loved. A place of unconditional belonging and freedom. But too many of us can’t afford to own where we feel most at home. So we rent the places we can only dream of buying or move out in order to move ahead.

At Wayhome, we’re opening up ownership. We co-buy with people who haven’t been able to yet. People own their share and simply rent ours. Free to buy more, buy us out, paint things purple, pull the carpet up or move out if they want.

Let’s make great neighbours, give gardens new life, find homes for growing families and change ownership for good.

Let’s give home life.

Our values

Transparency 

We are respectfully honest 

Community

Hear from the team

What’s it like to work at Wayhome? 

Here's what some of our team had to say about why they joined and what's great about their roles at Wayhome


Siân Jones, Head of Product

What made you want to join Wayhome?

The challenges linked to owning a home is something I’ve always felt strongly about and Wayhome’s mission to Reinvent Homeownership really appealed to me from the start.

Even though we’ve all been working remotely ever since I started, I’ve felt really welcome and the time has just flown by.

How are you and the Product team helping to make one of the biggest and most life-changing experiences in life better for aspiring homeowners?

We know how stressful it can be purchasing (and managing) a home, which can really dampen the joy of buying and living in a home. The product we’re delivering is aimed at removing the stress and worry, reinventing homeownership for the better.

What's the best thing about working for Wayhome?

Everything’s up for discussion! And if you believe that what you're doing is right, and you have the data to back it up, youre trusted to deliver on it.

What's special about your role here?

We’ve got really strong and experienced leadership team, who truly trust the people they've hired. It means I’ve got a great deal of autonomy in my role and how I go about my work.

Chee Diep, Lead Frontend Engineer

What’s special about your role here?

The amount of trust and autonomy that my team and I have. There’s no micro-managing, or having set solutions given to you. We’ve got the freedom to suggest ideas and solve problems ourselves.

What made you want to join Wayhome?

The difficulties faced by first time buyers is something I can definitely relate to as I’m also trying to buy without the help of The Bank of Mum and Dad. 

So when I found Wayhome, it felt like somewhere that I could use my skills and experience for something that actually helps people with a real world problem.

How are you, and the rest of the Frontend Dev team, helping to make one of the biggest and most life-changing experiences in life easier/better for aspiring homeowners?

It’s a joint effort! We work closely with our Product team to create tools that will remove plenty of the stress out of home buying for our customers, by making it more efficient to buy homes. These kind of things can really make a big impact to such an important moment for lots of the people we’ll be helping.

What’s the best thing about working for Wayhome?

Without a doubt, it’s the people. It’s great working in an environment where everyone’s supportive and trusting of each other, and where we’re all genuinely on the same page. We want to help people move away from renting and towards owning.
