OJO Labs – Why Work With Us?

OJO Labs is transforming the home buying and selling process with a fusion of human and machine intelligence that delivers deeply personalized property recommendations and guides homebuyers and sellers along their journey. OJO offers digital advising with a hybrid of patented, AI-powered technology and human support. The more a homebuyer or seller interacts with OJO, the smarter it gets about what’s most important and can retrieve and highlight information beyond what can be found on any other site. 

OJO also provides agents and brokers the ability to be connected with homebuyers when they are ready to move forward through warm and informed introductions - creating a positive experience for everyone because OJO is built to help people move closer to buying and selling with confidence. 

Founded in 2015 by John Berkowitz and David Rubin, OJO Labs is backed by the two largest VC firms in Austin, LiveOak Venture Partners and Silverton Partners. OJO Labs has recently been recognized among the “Best Places to Work” by both the Austin Business Journal, Inc., and Built In Austin. The OJO team has decades of combined success scaling businesses and deep experience in data science, engineering, product marketing, and operations. OJO Labs has also been recognized for its technology and innovation leadership by HousingWire’s Tech 100 and Rising Stars and T3’s Sixty Tech500.

Headquartered in Austin, Texas, OJO Labs is continuing to build its remarkable team, comprised of the country’s top talent working together to solve hard problems, build exceptional products and significantly impact consumer confidence in crucial, complex, costly purchases. 

OJO Labs holds strategic partnerships with Realogy Holdings Corp.’s top national brands including Century 21, ERA, BHGRE, Sotheby’s International Realty, and Coldwell Banker. Additionally, the company expanded into Toronto, Canada through its partnership with Royal Bank of Canada’s ventures division and Royal LePage, bringing its services to a large network across North America. 

Together, we’re building something indistinguishable from magic.

Our mission is to fundamentally improve the way people make their most important decisions through the fusion of machine and human intelligence.

    I have been working at OJO Labs full-time (More than a year)


    The people. The culture. Everyone is so friendly and willing to help you out, and support you in your goals. There are a wide variety of projects to work on, so that you can go in depth in your particular area, or even get exposed to lots of other things outside of your skill range. Working with this extremely talented and wonderful team has been an absolute pleasure.


    It's a startup, so if you don't like fast-paced environments and the startup lifestyle, that's the only real con for me I can think of.

    I applied online. I interviewed at OJO Labs in August 2020.


    I had the typical screening interview. Then I had an interview with a director and a VP. The questions asked were fairly straight forward. I felt that I answered them to their satisfaction.
