Content Marketing Writer (German)

Hypofriend is a next generation digital mortgage broker using proprietary technology to find customers the best mortgage possible.

We are changing the way people think about their mortgage and their house. We have made it our mission, to make getting a mortgage in Germany much easier, and more transparent. But most fundamentally our mission is to help customers make mortgage what it ought to be: part of a sound financial and happy future for our customers.

At the core we have built our unique Hypofriend Engine (True Cost Algorithm), to help us do just that -- remove the bias to find customers the right mortgage product at the best rate from hundreds of lenders given their unique characteristics.  

In other words: Hypofriend’s mission is to help customers make smarter mortgage decisions on their journey to becoming a homeowner. We want our customers to be able to decide with confidence and for them we will demystify mortgages and make the process feel and look simple.
