I'm extremely confused. Maybe they posted the wrong job description under this job title?

Steph's Notes:

Their Careers page comes across as very indicative of its leadership, which is to say, very young but very earnest. It's kind of sweet.

Also, assuming the team photo on the Careers page is still current, it's one of the more diverse companies I've come across. They also go into real detail about their benefits and I appreciate that.

However, they call themselves Ownwellians, and the seemingly intentional reference to Orwellian is...weird, to say the least. Are they intentionally calling their culture a dystopian, totalitarian hellscape? And if they're not, is it better to accidentally call your own culture a dystopian, totalitarian hellscape?

Looking at the job listing, right away there are some problems:

Original Job Description: Support Operations Manager

Company Background:

Ownwell helps property owners reduce the costs of owning real estate. Our proprietary software automatically identifies property owners that are overpaying on real estate expenses. We then manage the end-to-end process of reducing bills through tax appeals, exemptions, and corrections.

Over $40 billion is overpaid in property taxes every year, and inaccurate tax assessments disproportionately affect people of color, immigrants, as well as low-income communities. We’re dedicated to making the costs of property ownership more transparent and equitable. We believe that regardless of status or level of real estate expertise, everyone should have access to the information, tools, and resources to manage their real estate with confidence.

Ownwell is well-funded and venture-backed by some of the best investors in the world. Our customer base has grown by more than 1000% year-over-year with exceptional feedback demonstrating clear product market fit. We are looking for driven and passionate team members who thrive in a collaborative, positive culture where we all win together. If this sounds like the place for you, come help us change the way everyday homeowners manage their real estate across the country.

Our Culture People are our superpower! Centered in everything we do is a true sense of team. We listen and we learn from each other. We are on this rocketship together and embrace a fast-paced, truly collaborative environment. We are here to win as a team and as a company.

We’ve brought together General Appraisers, Certified Public Accountants, Property Tax Consultants, Data scientists, PhDs, best-in-class customer support representatives, and more to deliver top results for our customers.

Y'all. Whenever a company mentions the actual benefits of a job as "in addition" to the PRIVILEGE and SPLENDOR of simply working for said company, as if being able to feed and provide for the health of your family is secondary to supporting an "iconic brand," well that is a major red flag.
