About us

Futurerent is a fast-growing fintech startup based in Sydney that gives property investors their rent in advance — the simplest and fastest way to access up to $100,000.

Futurerent is entering the scaleup stage of its journey to radically transform how property investors collect rent and access the money they need to grow their wealth. Until now, most property investors have refinanced their entire loan when they only need a small amount, which is slow, painful and expensive. The banks make borrowing $50,000 as painful as borrowing $500,000. Futurerent has created a new fit-for-purpose financing solution for property investors which unlocks the money they need, without borrowing more money from the bank.

There has been a lot of buzz about Futurerent in the AFR, Savings.com.au, Real Estate Business and Australian Property Investor Magazine.

What success looks like

In the first month, you will form a deep understanding of the engagement and deal flow generated by past content, as well as the content used by banks and personal loan providers (our indirect competitors), to establish hypotheses of what content will drive awareness, nurture and conversions.

You will research our clients, our audience and the industry, tapping into the mindset of residential property investors to understand what types of content will help them unlock their wealth-creation goals. This will shape your first version of your content plan.

At the same time, you will be continuing to produce content that is important to the ongoing running of our company: sales decks, website copy updates, email newsletters, media pitches etc.

In the next few months you will develop a detailed editorial calendar, implement SEO-driven practices, and improve our ability to engage and convert leads through elevated comms. Your goal is noise and growth; more property investors hearing about us, being excited and inspired by us, and successfully converting into leads and clients. You will be shaping the mindset, as well as providing the mouthpiece for the industry’s most seamless access to funding, for property investors around Australia.

The team

You will be reporting to the Head of Marketing, Lawrence Nathan. Lawrence is an award-winning marketer with over 9 years’ of corporate and startup experience in NYC and Sydney. Lawrence has worked for Westfield, Alibaba, and most recently as Head of Marketing at proptech startup Obligo, recent recipient of the award for most promising Israeli-founded startup in lending and financing. Lawrence is a T-shaped marketer, with deep expertise in growth strategies, lead acquisition, and converting leads into loyal clients.

We are a tight-knit team of specialists with deep experience in property, finance, marketing, communications and technology. We thrive on first principles and are always coming back to the ‘why’ to drive innovation and optimisation. We believe that by leveraging each other’s core competencies and combining our unique insights and skills we are building a world-class business that will have a meaningful impact on the wealth creation possibilities for everyday Australian families.

You will find that your fellow Futurerent colleagues are superstar performers and team players with a growth mindset who love building an innovative business and value transparency, simplicity and relationships. As a key member of the leadership team, we want you to feel empowered and for Futurerent to be a meaningful part of your own wealth creation journey. We are open to relocating a candidate to Sydney.
