The Annual Meeting will be held in a virtual meeting format only.

Based on stockholders’ and our experiences at those meetings, we believe our virtual meeting format offers stockholders the same opportunities to participate as an in-person meeting and allows us to provide consistent opportunities for engagement to all stockholders, regardless of their geographic location. Therefore, we have determined that the Annual Meeting will be held in a virtual meeting format only. To participate in our virtual Annual Meeting, including to vote, ask questions and view the list of registered stockholders at the close of business on Monday, April 17, 2023 (“Record Date”) during the meeting, visit www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/OPEN2023 with your 16-digit control number included in your Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials (the “Internet Notice”), proxy card or the instructions that accompanied your proxy materials.

Who is entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting?
Holders of record of our common stock as of the Record Date will be entitled to notice of, and such stockholders and holders of a valid proxy will be entitled to vote at, the Annual Meeting or any postponement, continuation or adjournment of the Annual Meeting. As of the Record Date, 647,414,581 shares of our common stock (“Common Stock”) were issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. Each share of Common Stock entitles the holder thereof to one vote with respect to all matters submitted to stockholders at the Annual Meeting.

A complete list of stockholders as of the Record Date will be open to the examination of any stockholder for a period of ten days prior to the Annual Meeting for a purpose germane to the Annual Meeting by sending an email to investors@opendoor.com, stating the purpose of the request and providing proof of ownership of Opendoor stock. The complete list of these stockholders will also be available to stockholders during the Annual Meeting at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/OPEN2023.
Stockholder of Record: Shares Registered in Your Name
Each holder of record of Common Stock on the Record Date will be entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters to be voted upon at the virtual Annual Meeting. As a stockholder of record, you may vote at the virtual Annual Meeting, or prior to the Annual Meeting, vote through the Internet or by telephone, or by mail using a proxy card that you received or that you may request. See “How do I vote my shares if I am a stockholder of record?” below. Whether or not you plan to attend the virtual Annual Meeting, we urge you vote by proxy through the Internet or by telephone as instructed below, or by completing a proxy card that you may request or that we may elect to deliver at a later time.

Beneficial Owner: Shares Registered in the Name of a Broker or Bank
If on the Record Date your shares were held, not in your name, but rather in an account at a brokerage firm, bank, dealer or other similar organization, then you are the beneficial owner of shares held in “street name” and the Notice is being forwarded to you by that organization. The organization holding your account is considered to be the stockholder of record for purposes of voting during the Annual Meeting. As a beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker or other agent regarding how to vote the shares in your account. You are also invited to attend the virtual Annual Meeting. However, since you are not the stockholder of record, you may only vote your shares during the virtual Annual Meeting if you request and obtain a valid 16-Digit Control Number from your broker or agent.

What is the difference between being a “record holder” and holding shares in “street name”?
A record holder holds shares in their name. Shares held in “street name” means shares that are held in the name of a bank or broker on a person’s behalf.

For more information, see “What happens if a beneficial owner of shares held in street name does not provide its broker or bank with voting instructions?” and “What are broker non-votes?” below.
Will any other business be conducted at the Annual Meeting?
We know of no other business that will be presented at the Annual Meeting. If any other matter properly comes before the stockholders for a vote at the Annual Meeting, however, the proxy holders named on the Company’s proxy card will vote your shares in accordance with their best judgment.
How many shares must be present to hold the Annual Meeting?
A quorum must be present at the Annual Meeting for any business to be conducted. The presence at the Annual Meeting, online or by proxy, of the holders of a majority in voting power of the common stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote on the Record Date will constitute a quorum.

Only stockholders that have accessed the Annual Meeting as a stockholder by following the procedures outlined above will be permitted to submit questions during the Annual Meeting. Each stockholder is limited to no more than two questions. Questions should be succinct and only cover a single topic. We will not address questions that are, among other things:
irrelevant to the business of the Company or to the business of the Annual Meeting;
related to material non-public information of the Company, including the status or results of our business since our last Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q;
related to any pending, threatened or ongoing litigation;
related to personal grievances;
derogatory references to individuals;
substantially repetitious of questions already made by another stockholder;
in excess of the two-question limit;
in furtherance of the stockholder’s personal or business interests; or
out of order or not otherwise suitable for the conduct of the Annual Meeting as determined by the chair of the Annual Meeting or Secretary in their reasonable judgment.
Additional information regarding the Q&A session will be available in the “Rules of Conduct” posted at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/OPEN2023 for stockholders that have accessed the Annual Meeting as a stockholder (rather than a “Guest”) by following the procedures outlined above.
What are Broker Non-Votes?
If the shares you own are held in street name through a bank or brokerage firm, the bank or brokerage firm is required to vote your shares in accordance with your instructions. You should direct your broker how to vote the shares held in your account. Under applicable stock exchange rules, if you do not instruct your broker on how to vote your shares, your broker

will be able to vote your shares with respect to certain “routine” matters but will not be allowed to vote your shares with respect to certain “non-routine” matters. The ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm is a routine matter, and therefore we do not expect any broker non-votes on this matter. Each other proposal to be voted on at the Annual Meeting is a non-routine matter. Generally, broker non-votes occur when shares held by a broker in “street name” for a beneficial owner are not voted with respect to a particular proposal because the broker has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner and lacks discretionary voting power to vote those shares.
What happens if a stockholder of record does not vote, or if a stockholder of record returns a proxy card or otherwise votes without giving specific voting instructions?
If you are a stockholder of record and you do not specify your vote on each proposal individually when voting via the Internet, over the telephone or if you sign and return a proxy card without giving specific voting instructions, then your shares will be voted in line with the Board’s recommendations as described under “Recommendations of the Board” above. If any other matter is properly presented at the virtual Annual Meeting, your proxyholder (one of the individuals named on your proxy card) will vote your shares using their best judgment.
What happens if a beneficial owner of shares held in street name does not provide its broker or bank with voting instructions?
If you are a beneficial owner of shares registered in the name of your broker, bank or other agent, and you do not instruct your broker, bank or other agent how to vote your shares, your broker, bank or other agent may still be able to vote your shares in its discretion. In this regard, under the rules of the NYSE, brokers, banks and other securities intermediaries that are subject to NYSE rules may use their discretion to vote your “uninstructed” shares with respect to matters considered to be “routine” under NYSE rules, but not with respect to “non-routine” matters. In this regard, Proposals 1 & 3 are considered to be “non-routine” under NYSE rules meaning that your broker may not vote your shares on those proposals in the absence of your voting instructions. However, Proposal 2 is considered to be a “routine” matter under NYSE rules, meaning that if you do not return voting instructions to your broker by its deadline, your shares may be voted by your broker in its discretion on Proposal 2.
If you are a beneficial owner of shares held in street name, in order to ensure your shares are voted in the way you would prefer, you must provide voting instructions to your broker, bank or other agent by the deadline provided in the proxy materials you receive from your broker, bank or other agent.
Can I revoke my proxy or change my vote?
Voting over the Internet or by telephone or execution of a proxy will not in any way affect a stockholder’s right to attend the Annual Meeting and vote electronically. A proxy may be revoked before it is used to cast a vote at the Annual Meeting.
Stockholders of Record
If the shares you own are held in your name, you can revoke a proxy by doing one of the following:
delivering to our Secretary, at or before the taking of the vote at the Annual Meeting, a written notice of revocation bearing a later date than the proxy;
duly executing a later-dated proxy relating to the same shares and delivering it to our Secretary before the taking of the vote; or
attending the Annual Meeting and voting electronically. However, your attendance at the Annual Meeting will not automatically revoke your proxy unless you vote again at the Annual Meeting.
Any written notice of revocation or subsequent proxy should be sent to us at the following address: Opendoor Technologies Inc., 410 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite 1600, Tempe, Arizona 85281, Attention: Sydney Schaub, Secretary.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Beneficial Owner
If the shares you own are held in street name, you will need to follow the directions provided to you by your bank or brokerage firm to change your vote.
What is the quorum requirement and what if quorum is not met?
The presence electronically or representation by proxy of a majority in voting power of the shares of common stock of the Company entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting is necessary to establish a quorum. Abstentions and broker non-votes are included in the shares present or represented at the Annual Meeting for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present. If a quorum is not present, the chair of the Annual Meeting may adjourn the meeting until a quorum is obtained.
How many votes are needed to approve each proposal?
The table below sets forth the vote required for the approval of each proposal before the Annual Meeting, and the effect of votes withheld, abstentions and broker non-votes.
Proposal
Votes Required
Effect of Votes Withheld/Abstentions
and Broker Non-Votes
Proposal 1: Election of Directors
The plurality of the votes cast. This means that the three nominees receiving the highest number of “FOR” votes will be elected as Class III Directors.
Votes withheld and broker non-votes will have no effect.
Proposal 2: Ratification of Appointment by the Audit Committee of the Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
“FOR” votes from the holders of a majority of shares present virtually or represented by proxy and entitled to vote on the matter.
Abstentions will have no effect. We do not expect any broker non-votes on this proposal.(1)
Proposal 3: Approval, on an Advisory (Non-Binding) Basis, of the Compensation of our Named Executive Officers (“Say-on-Pay Vote”)
“FOR” votes from the holders of a majority of shares present virtually or represented by proxy and entitled to vote on the matter.
Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect.
(1)
Proposal 2 is considered to be a “routine” matter under NYSE rules. Accordingly, if you hold your shares in street name and do not provide voting instructions to your broker, bank or other agent that holds your shares, your broker, bank or other agent has discretionary authority under NYSE rules to vote your shares on Proposal 2.
Who will count the votes?
The votes will be counted, tabulated and certified by a representative of Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc., our inspector of election, for the Annual Meeting.
Where can I find the voting results of the Annual Meeting?
We plan to announce preliminary voting results at the Annual Meeting and we will report the final results in a Current Report on Form 8-K, which we intend to file with the SEC shortly after the Annual Meeting.
Who is paying for this proxy solicitation?

No arrangements or understandings exist between any director and any other person pursuant to which such person was selected as a director or nominee.

Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that the authorized number of directors may be changed only by resolution of our Board in accordance with our Amended & Restated Bylaws.

Director Independence
As required under Nasdaq listing standards, a majority of the members of a listed company’s board of directors must qualify as “independent,” as affirmatively determined by the board of directors. Our Board consults with the Company’s inside and outside counsel to ensure that the Board’s determinations are consistent with relevant securities and other laws and regulations regarding the definition of “independent,” including those set forth in pertinent listing standards of Nasdaq, as in effect from time to time.
Consistent with these considerations, after review of all relevant identified transactions or relationships between each director, or any of their family members, and the Company, its senior management and its independent auditors, the Board has affirmatively determined that each of Adam Bain, Cipora Herman, Jonathan Jaffe, Pueo Keffer, Jason Kilar, John Rice and Glenn Solomon each qualify as “independent” in accordance with the listing requirements of Nasdaq. In making this determination, the Board found that none of these directors or nominees for director had a material or other disqualifying relationship with the Company.
Independent Directors
• Adam Bain
• Cipora Herman
• Jonathan Jaffe
• Pueo Keffer
• Jason Kilar
• John Rice
• Glenn Solomon
In arriving at the foregoing independence determinations, the Board reviewed and discussed information provided by the directors with regard to each director’s business and personal activities and any relationships they have with us and our management.
Based on this review, our Board has determined that all of our non-employee directors, who are listed above, meet the applicable criteria for independence established by Nasdaq. Carrie Wheeler and Eric Wu do not qualify as independent under the Nasdaq rules due to their current and/or prior employment at Opendoor.
Board Leadership Structure
Our Corporate Governance Guidelines provide that an “lead independent director” may be appointed from among the independent directors. The Board has a lead independent director, John Rice, who has authority, among other things, to call and preside over Board meetings, including meetings of the independent directors, to set meeting agendas and to determine materials to be distributed to the Board. Accordingly, the lead independent director has substantial ability to shape the work of the Board. The Company believes that, going forward, separation of the positions of board chair and Chief Executive Officer (or appointing a lead independent director in lieu of an independent board chair) reinforces the independence of the Board in its oversight of the business and affairs of the Company. In addition, the Company believes that having a lead independent director (or independent board chair) creates an environment that is more conducive to objective evaluation and oversight of management’s performance, increasing management accountability and improving the ability of the Board to monitor whether management’s actions are in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders. As a result, the Company believes that having a lead independent director (or independent board chair) can enhance the effectiveness of the Board as a whole.
However, there is no fixed requirement in our Corporate Governance Guidelines that our board chair and Chief Executive Officer positions be separate, or that our board chair be an employee or elected from among non-employee directors. We believe that it is in the best interests of the Company to maintain the flexibility to evaluate our leadership structure over time as part of Opendoor’s ongoing succession planning process.
Board’s Role in Risk Oversight
The Board recognizes that the achievement of our strategic and commercial objectives involves taking risks and that those risks may evolve over time. The Board has oversight responsibility for Opendoor’s risk management function, which is designed to identify, assess and monitor fundamental financial and business risks across the Company’s operations and consider ways to address and mitigate those risks. Consistent with this approach, one of the Board’s primary responsibilities includes reviewing assessments of, and advising management with respect to, significant risks and issues facing the Company.
Opendoor Technologies Inc. // 2023 Proxy Statement

TABLE OF CONTENTS

In addition, the Board has tasked designated committees of the Board to assist with the oversight of certain categories of risk management, and the committees report to the Board regularly on these matters.
The Audit Committee reviews and discusses guidelines and policies governing the process by which senior management assesses and manages the Company’s exposure to risk, as well as the Company’s major financial risk exposures and the steps management has taken to monitor and control such exposures;
The Compensation Committee, in approving and evaluating the Company’s executive compensation plans, policies and programs, takes into account the degree of risk to the Company that such plans, policies and programs may create and reviews and discusses, at least annually, the relationship between risk management policies and practices, corporate strategy and the Company’s compensation arrangements; and
The Nominating Committee assists the Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities with respect to the management of risks associated with Board organization, membership and structure, as well as our overall governance structure.
Our Board does not believe that its role in the oversight of our risks affects the Board’s leadership structure.
Board Meetings, Continued Education and Succession Planning
Board Meetings and Executive Sessions
Board members are expected to prepare for, attend and participate in all meetings of the Board and committees on which they serve. During 2022, the Board held nine regular meetings and 11 special meetings and all directors attended 96% or more of the aggregate number of Board meetings and meetings of the committees on which they then served. We do not maintain a formal policy regarding director attendance at our annual meetings; however, it is expected that directors will attend. Seven out of the eight Board members attended the 2022 Annual Meeting.
The Board holds executive sessions of its independent directors no less than two times per year.
Director Orientation and Continuing Education
The Board views orientation and continuing education as vital tools for building an effective Board. We provide all new directors with orientation sessions regarding the Board and the Company’s operations. The orientation consists of presentations by members of senior management on the Company’s strategic plans, financial statements and key issues, policies and practices. We also periodically provide materials, updates and presentations, including in regular Board and committee meetings, to all directors on issues and subjects that assist them in fulfilling their responsibilities, such as key industry developments and the competitive landscape. In addition, the Company will pay for certain expenses for any director who wishes to attend seminars, conferences and other continuing education programs designed for directors of public companies.
Process for Board Succession Planning and Selection and Nomination of Directors
As provided in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, the Board, together with the Nominating Committee, is responsible for determining the appropriate characteristics, skills, and experience for the Board as a whole and for its individual members. The Board believes that candidates for director should have certain minimum qualifications, including the highest personal integrity and ethics and the ability to read and understand basic financial statements. In considering candidates for Board membership, the Board considers additional criteria including relevant expertise, sufficient time to devote to our affairs; excellence in their field, the ability to exercise sound judgment; a commitment to represent the long-term interests of our stockholders; diversity (including diversity of gender, ethnic background and country of origin), age, skills, and other factors that it deems appropriate to maintain a balance of knowledge, experience, and capability on the Board in the context of the needs of the Board and the Company.
Each year, the Nominating Committee assesses the directors to be nominated for election by stockholders at the annual meeting. To ensure that the Board evolves in a manner that serves the business and strategic needs of the Company, before recommending for re-nomination a slate of incumbent directors for an additional term, the Nominating Committee will evaluate whether incumbent directors possess the requisite skills and perspective, both individually and collectively. In

TABLE OF CONTENTS

addition, the Board will review those directors’ overall service to Opendoor during their term, including the number of meetings attended, level of participation, quality of performance, and any other relationships and transactions that might impair the directors’ independence.
The Nominating Committee is primarily responsible for searching for qualified director candidates for election to the Board and filling vacancies on the Board. To facilitate the search process, the Nominating Committee may solicit current directors and executives of the Company for the names of potentially qualified candidates or ask directors and executives to pursue their own business contacts for the names of potentially qualified candidates. The Nominating Committee may also consult with outside advisors or retain search firms to assist in the search for qualified candidates, or consider director candidates recommended by our stockholders. Once potential candidates are identified, the Nominating Committee reviews the backgrounds of those candidates, evaluates candidates’ independence from the Company and potential conflicts of interest and determines if candidates meet the qualifications desired by the Nominating Committee for candidates for election as a director.
Stockholder Recommendations of Director Candidates
Stockholders may recommend individuals to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee for consideration as potential director candidates by submitting the names of the recommended individuals, together with appropriate biographical information and background materials, to the Nominating Committee, Opendoor Technologies Inc., 410 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite 1600, Tempe, Arizona 85281, Attention: Sydney Schaub, Secretary. In the event there is a vacancy, and assuming that appropriate biographical and background material has been provided on a timely basis, the Nominating Committee will evaluate stockholder-recommended candidates by following substantially the same process, and applying substantially the same criteria, as it follows for candidates submitted by others.
Stockholder Engagement
Opendoor engages with stockholders and analysts through conference calls, industry conferences, one-on-one meetings and teleconferences. We typically discuss our financial position, strategic priorities, business outlook and other topics of prime importance to stockholders. As we continue to grow as a public company, we will continue to engage with our stockholders regarding our corporate governance practices. We are committed to maintaining an active dialogue with our stockholders to better understand their perspectives and consider their ideas as we continue to evolve our corporate governance and business practices and public disclosures.
Communications from Stockholders
Our Board currently does not have a formal process for stockholders to send communications to the Board. Nevertheless, the Board will give appropriate attention to written communications that are submitted by stockholders, and will respond if and as appropriate. Communications are forwarded to all directors if they relate to important substantive matters and include suggestions or comments that our Secretary and chair (or lead independent director) of the Board consider to be important for the directors to know. In general, communications relating to corporate governance and long-term corporate strategy are more likely to be forwarded than communications relating to ordinary business affairs, personal grievances and matters as to which we tend to receive repetitive or duplicative communications. Stockholders who wish to send communications on any topic to the Board should address such communications to the Board of Directors, c/o Sydney Schaub, Secretary, Opendoor Technologies Inc., 410 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite 1600, Tempe, Arizona 85281.
Stock Ownership Guidelines
In December 2022, we established stock ownership guidelines for our executive officers and directors. Within five years of the establishment of the guidelines (or becoming subject to the guidelines, if later) our CEO is required to hold the lesser of vested shares of the Company’s common stock equal to six times annual base salary, or 450,000 shares; other executive officers are required to hold the lesser of vested shares of the Company’s common stock equal to three times annual base salary, or 225,000 shares; and directors are required to hold the lesser of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to five times their annual cash retainer or 60,000 shares. Only issued shares are counted toward satisfaction of the ownership requirement. Accordingly, unvested equity awards (including both time- and performance-based) and unexercised stock options, if any, do not count toward satisfying the executive stock ownership requirement.

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
Compensation Discussion and Analysis
This Compensation Discussion and Analysis provides information regarding the 2022 compensation program for our 2022 “named executive officers” (or “NEOs”), who are listed below:
Carrie Wheeler, our Chief Executive Officer (our “CEO”);
Christina Schwartz, our interim Chief Financial Officer (our “CFO”);
Sydney Schaub, our Chief Legal Officer;
Eric Wu, our President, Marketplace;
Andrew Low Ah Kee, our former President; and
Daniel Morillo, our former Chief Investment Officer.
Who We Are
We are a leading e-commerce platform for residential real estate transactions. In 2014, we founded Opendoor to reinvent one of life’s most important transactions and make it possible to buy, sell, and move at the tap of a button. By leveraging software, data science, product design and operations, we are building a managed marketplace for residential real estate that offers buyers and sellers an enhanced experience as compared to traditional real estate transactions.
Since launch, customers have demonstrated their desire for our digital, on-demand real estate solution with over 215,000 homes bought and sold by Opendoor across the United States.
In 2022, we sold over 39,000 homes and generated $15.6 billion in revenue, the latter of which represents a compound annual growth rate of 85% since 2017.
Importantly, we have achieved this growth while continuing to delight customers, maintaining an annual average Net Promoter Score of nearly 80 from our sellers in 2022.
Our mission is straightforward: to power life’s progress, one move at a time. In furtherance of this mission, we are building a managed marketplace for residential real estate via two core product offerings: our first-party (1P) product and our third-party (3P) product. Together, these two offerings leverage our centralized platform capabilities. We are working towards a future where both 1P and 3P sales take place on our platform, enabling sellers and buyers to experience a simple and certain transaction that dramatically improves the traditional process.
Key Leadership Transitions
While current macroeconomic conditions are challenging for the technology and housing sectors, we believe we are uniquely positioned to execute on our mission. In connection with this belief, we made changes to our leadership team as we closed fiscal year 2022 as a means of strengthening our position. The leadership changes were made to put Opendoor in a position to drive financial and operational excellence while providing a continued focus on innovation.
In December 2022, our former CEO, Eric Wu, stepped into a new role as President, Marketplace; and we appointed Carrier Wheeler, our former CFO, as CEO effective as of December 1, 2022. Ms. Wheeler’s CEO compensation package is described in detail below under “Overview of Fiscal Year 2022 Executive Compensation Program.”
In connection with Ms. Wheeler’s appointment as CEO, the Board appointed Ms. Schwartz, who has served as our Chief Accounting Officer since March 2021, as our interim CFO.
Ms. Schaub was appointed our Chief Legal Officer effective September 6, 2022.
On December 1, 2022, Mr. Low Ah Kee resigned from his position as President effective as of the same date and resigned from employment in early April 2023; following his resignation, he is continuing as an advisor through June 2023.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

On February 21, 2023, Mr. Morillo notified us of his resignation as our Chief Investment Officer, effective as of the same date; following his resignation, he is continuing in employment with us as an advisor through May 31, 2023.
Consideration of 2022 Say on Pay Vote Results and Stockholder Outreach
The Compensation Committee and full Board take the outcome of our annual Say on Pay vote seriously and are focused on gathering and responding to our stockholders’ feedback regarding the Company’s executive compensation programs. As part of its compensation-setting process, the Compensation Committee considers the results of the stockholder advisory vote on our executive compensation from the prior year. Approximately 62% of the votes cast at our 2022 Annual Meeting were voted in favor of our executive compensation, as compared to approximately 99.8% the prior year.
This Say on Pay vote result was lower than expected. In response, we undertook a stockholder outreach campaign with key institutional investors. Throughout fiscal 2022, we had conversations with stockholders collectively representing over 15% of non-affiliated outstanding shares (as of September 30, 2022) about issues of importance to them, including executive compensation, corporate governance matters, human capital, and our approach to environmental and social issues. In each meeting, company participation typically included our Chief Legal Officer, our Chief People Officer and our VP of Investor Relations. In these meetings, we received valuable feedback regarding the strengths of our executive compensation program as well as areas for improvement as we mature as a publicly-traded company. We specifically sought actionable feedback that could be better incorporated into Compensation Committee discussions and decisions going forward.
In response to the feedback we received, the Compensation Committee remains committed to understanding and being responsive to stockholder sentiment. The table below summarizes the specific feedback we received from our stockholders during these meetings, and, informed by stockholder feedback, the results of the Company’s 2022 Say on Pay vote, and consultations with the Compensation Committee’s independent compensation advisor, how our Compensation Committee and the Board generally have addressed or intend to address these matters.
What Stockholders Said:
Action We Took:
Executive Compensation:
Compensation philosophy and use of discretion in executive compensation decisions is not clearly outlined.
As noted below under “Compensation Philosophy and Objectives”, we have included additional detail regarding our compensation philosophy and specific compensation decisions during 2022.
The company’s peer group and rationale for selection is not described.
As noted below under “Peer Group and Competitive Positioning”, we have provided additional information regarding the creation and periodic review of our compensation peer group, including the metrics used to evaluate peers for selection.
There is a lack of mitigating factors, such as a clawback policy or stock ownership guidelines.
As discussed below under “Stock Ownership Guidelines,” in December 2022, we established stock ownership guidelines for our directors and senior employees, including our Section 16 reporting officers.

Under our stock ownership guidelines, within five years of the establishment of the guidelines, the applicable individuals must comply with the following minimum required thresholds of ownership:

Non-Employee Directors — the lesser of 5 times annual cash retainer or 60,000 shares;

Chief Executive Officer — the lesser of 6 times base salary or 450,000 shares; and

• Section 16 Officers (other than CEO) and any other executives designated as participants — the lesser of 3 times base salary or 225,000 shares.

While we have considered implementation of a clawback policy, given the pending effectiveness of Nasdaq’s final clawback rules,

TABLE OF CONTENTS

What Stockholders Said:
Action We Took:
 
the Compensation Committee determined that we will implement our clawback policy in accordance with the new listing standard when the new listing standard becomes final.
There is a lack of rationale for large executive equity award grants and it is unclear whether such grants represent multiple years of equity compensation.
We carefully consider the appropriate mix of compensation delivered to our executive officers. As such, our executive compensation has been carefully structured with a heavier emphasis on stock compensation to ensure our executives are directly aligned to company success and the long term interests of our stockholders.

In 2021 and in connection with our initial public offering, Mr. Wu was provided shares in the form of time-based RSUs (“TRSUs”) and Performance-based RSUs (“PRSUs”) to both retain and incentivize Mr. Wu in support of the Company's continued growth, in part, given Mr. Wu’s minimal unvested equity position at that time. At the time, there was no intention to offer or provide additional equity in future years, unless deemed necessary by the Compensation Committee. As described further under “Overview of Fiscal Year 2022 Executive Compensation Program,” in connection with the CEO transition, Mr. Wu forfeited all of his outstanding TRSUs granted on 3/30/2021 and PRSUs granted on 12/17/2020, which forfeiture, in the aggregate, represented 76% of the shares originally underlying these awards.

In 2022, we made limited equity awards to our named executive officers in connection with new hires or promotions, each of which was deemed justified by our Compensation Committee upon the recommendation of its independent compensation consultant and a review of comparable company information.

The January 2023 award to Ms. Wheeler in connection with her promotion to CEO was similarly approved by our Compensation Committee based upon the recommendation of its independent compensation consultant and a review of the pay practices of our peer group and a broader view of technology based companies that recently appointed a CEO.
Governance:
Provide additional information regarding evaluation of Board performance.
Our Board engages in annual self-evaluations, in addition to participating in an annual evaluation of board member expertise. For additional information on our evaluation of Board performance, please see the section titled “Corporate Governance Highlights” of this proxy statement.
Appointing a lead independent director.
In connection with the leadership changes in 2022, on December 1, 2022 we appointed John Rice as the lead independent director.
We believe that our robust dialogue on these and other topics demonstrates our commitment to strong corporate governance and market-based compensation structures. We will continue to regularly engage with our stockholders on compensation matters and will continue to address issues and suggestions received through these stockholder efforts. As our stockholders’ views and market practices on executive compensation evolve, the Committee will continue to evaluate and, when appropriate, make changes to our executive compensation program, ensuring that the program continues to reflect our pay-for-performance compensation philosophy and objectives.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Executive Compensation Policies and Practices
We endeavor to maintain sound governance standards consistent with our executive compensation policies and practices. The Compensation Committee evaluates our executive compensation program on a regular basis to ensure that it is consistent with our short-term and long-term goals given the dynamic nature of our business and the market in which we compete for executive talent. The following summarizes our executive compensation and related policies and practices:
What We Do:
What We Don’t Do:
Independent Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee consists solely of independent directors who establish our compensation policies and practices.

Independent Compensation Adviser. The Compensation Committee has engaged its own compensation consultant to provide information, analysis and other advice on executive compensation independent of management. This compensation consultant performed no other consulting or other services for us in 2022.

Annual Executive Compensation Review. The Compensation Committee conducts an annual review and approval of our compensation strategy, including a review and determination of our compensation peer group used for comparative purposes and a review of our compensation-related risk profile.

Pay-for-Performance Philosophy. The majority of our named executive officers’ target total direct compensation opportunities are structured with a significant long-term equity component, making a substantial portion of each named executive officer’s target total direct compensation dependent upon our overall, long-term success as measured through our stock price and/or total stockholder return, thereby aligning the interests of our named executive officers and our stockholders.

“Double-Trigger” Change-in-Control Arrangements. Our post-employment compensation arrangements in the event of a change in control of the Company are “double-trigger” arrangements that require both a change in control of the Company plus a qualifying termination of employment before payments and benefits are paid.

Succession Planning. We periodically review the risks associated with our key executive officer positions to ensure adequate succession plans are in development.

Stock Ownership Guidelines. In December 2022, we established stock ownership guidelines for our executive officers and directors in order to further promote the alignment of their interests with those of our stockholders.
No Executive Retirement Plans. We do not offer pension plans or other defined benefit retirement plans or arrangements to our named executive officers. Our named executive officers are eligible to participate in our Section 401(k) retirement savings plan on the same basis as our other eligible full-time employees.

Limited Perquisites. We provide limited perquisites and other personal benefits to our named executive officers and such benefits generally are only provided when they serve a legitimate business purpose.

No Tax Reimbursements. Since 2022, we do not provide tax reimbursement payments (including “gross-ups”) to our named executive officers.

No Special Welfare or Health Benefits. Our executive officers participate in our broad-based company-sponsored health and welfare benefit plans and programs on the same basis as our other full-time employees.

No Post-Employment Tax Payment Reimbursement. We do not provide any tax reimbursement payments (including “gross-ups”) on any payments or benefits contingent upon a change in control of the Company.

No Hedging of Our Equity Securities. We prohibit our executive officers, all other employees and the non-employee members of our Board from engaging in certain derivative transactions and from hedging our securities.

Limited Pledging of Our Equity Securities. We prohibit our executive officers, all other employees and the non-employee members of our Board from holding our securities in a margin account without the prior approval of the Board or duly authorized committees thereof. We also prohibit pledging our securities as collateral for a loan without the prior consent of our Chief Legal Officer.

No “Single Trigger” Change-in-Control Arrangements. We do not provide cash severance or automatic vesting of equity awards based solely upon a change in control of the Company.
Overview of Fiscal Year 2022 Executive Compensation Program
The type of innovation needed to succeed in our mission requires investment and clarity of purpose. In our first two years as a public company, decisions on how we structured our executive compensation were aligned to the achievement of our mission. Our focus on executive compensation has been to keep compensation components simple thus ensuring a level of focus and unrelenting commitment to grow our business. As noted below under “Compensation Elements,” our executive compensation program has consisted of two elements — base salary and long-term incentive compensation in the form of equity awards, with a large portion of our executive compensation consisting of equity awards to ensure our executives are focused on growth and long term shareholder value. As our business scales and matures over time, we expect to adjust our executive compensation program accordingly, including by introducing performance based elements.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Set forth below is an overview of the key compensation decisions related to our fiscal year 2022 executive compensation program:
Equity Awards to Align Executive Compensation With Long-Term Stockholder Value. The majority of our named executive officers’ target total direct compensation opportunities are structured with a significant long-term equity component, making a substantial portion of each named executive officer’s target total direct compensation dependent upon our overall, long-term success. The Compensation Committee approved awards in connection with new-hire, promotional or retention compensation packages, as applicable, for Ms. Wheeler, as discussed directly below, and for Ms. Schwartz and Ms. Schaub. All equity awards granted to our named executive officers during 2022 were determined by our Compensation Committee upon the recommendation of its independent compensation consultant and a review of comparable company information.
Market Driven CEO Compensation Package for Carrie Wheeler. After careful consideration by the Compensation Committee and the Board, we named Ms. Wheeler to be the Company’s CEO and appointed her to the Board, as a Class III director, effective as of December 1, 2022. In selecting Ms. Wheeler to assume the CEO role, the Board considered Ms. Wheeler’s skill set, including her deep financial acumen and operating insight, each of which is critically important to the long-term success of our business. Until her CEO appointment, Ms. Wheeler served as our CFO since December 2020 and as a member of our Board prior to that. Ms. Wheeler also has 25 years of experience in private equity and board experience across numerous consumer companies.
In determining Ms. Wheeler’s new compensation package, our Compensation Committee requested that our compensation consultant, Compensia, provide market compensation insight. Our Compensation Committee, with input from Compensia, considered Ms. Wheeler’s potential compensation package based on compensation packages of our peer companies as well as other relevant technology companies that had recently appointed CEOs. The Compensation Committee considered it important that Ms. Wheeler’s compensation package reflect a competitive pay level associated with her new role to ensure her alignment to the long term growth and success of the Company. In addition, the Compensation Committee felt that it was important to provide an annual incentive opportunity to incent Ms. Wheeler to achieve our annual business and strategic objectives, along with severance protection, which is offered to executives at the majority of our peer companies. The Compensation Committee structured Ms. Wheeler’s compensation package to ensure her interests were focused on long-term value creation for our shareholders.
In connection with the appointment of Ms. Wheeler as our CEO, we and Ms. Wheeler entered into an amendment to Ms. Wheeler’s existing offer letter agreement. Pursuant to such amendment, Ms. Wheeler is entitled to an annual base salary of $750,000 and is eligible to participate in an annual cash incentive program established by the Compensation Committee, with a minimum bonus opportunity of $250,000 for 2023. The offer letter amendment further provides Ms. Wheeler with certain severance benefits, as described below under “Executive Offer Letters.”
In addition, in connection with her appointment as CEO, Ms. Wheeler was granted an award of TRSUs on January 2, 2023 covering 15,060,241 shares. This number of TRSUs was determined by dividing $25,000,000 by (i) the average closing price per share of our common stock over the 20 trading day period commencing with the trading day that was ten days preceding December 1, 2022 (subject to a minimum of $1.65 per share and a maximum of $2.00 per share). The TRSUs will vest quarterly over a four-year period commencing on December 1, 2022 subject to Ms. Wheeler’s continued employment with the Company on each such vesting date. As noted above, in determining the value of Ms. Wheeler’s TRSU grant, the Committee considered a competitive market analysis prepared by Compensia for sign-on CEO equity grants and also considered the importance of Ms. Wheeler to the Company’s ability to execute on its transformation plans.
Targeted Salary Increases. For fiscal year 2022, the Compensation Committee determined to increase the base salaries of Ms. Wheeler, in connection with her promotion to CEO, and Ms. Schwartz, in connection with her appointment as interim CFO.

Compensation Philosophy and Objectives
Our compensation programs are designed to attract, retain and motivate our employees, including our executive officers, by ensuring that such programs are aligned to the market, scalable and flexible for our leaders to operate within, and simple and clear for our employees to understand. We typically implement this philosophy by emphasizing equity, rather than cash, compensation.
With respect to our executive compensation program, our key objectives are to:
allow us to attract and retain highly qualified executive officers; and
ensure our executive team interests are directly aligned to the creation of long term stockholder value.
To attract new talent, we must be prepared to be, and be perceived as, an employer that offers competitive compensation, and we believe our executive compensation program is appropriately structured in this regard. We also believe that providing our executive officers and other employees with an opportunity to be owners in our business better aligns their interests with those of our stockholders.
To achieve our compensation objectives, we historically have provided our executive officers, including our named executive officers, with a compensation package consisting of the following elements:

Compensation-Setting Process
Role of the Compensation Committee
The Compensation Committee discharges the responsibilities of our Board relating to the compensation of our executive officers, including our named executive officers, and the non-employee members of our Board. Under its charter, the Compensation Committee has the overall responsibility for overseeing our compensation and benefits policies generally, and overseeing and evaluating the compensation plans, policies and practices applicable to our executive officers.
In carrying out its responsibilities, the Compensation Committee evaluates our compensation policies and practices with a focus on the degree to which these policies and practices reflect our executive compensation philosophy, develops strategies and makes decisions that it believes further our philosophy or align with developments in best compensation practices, and reviews the performance of our executive officers when making decisions with respect to their compensation or recommendations to our Board with respect to their compensation.
The Compensation Committee has retained a compensation consultant (as described below) to provide support in its review and assessment of our executive compensation program; however, the Compensation Committee exercises its own judgment in making final decisions or recommendations with respect to the compensation of our executive officers, including our named executive officers.
The Compensation Committee reviews our executive compensation program annually. As part of this review process, the Compensation Committee applies the objectives described above within the context of our overall compensation philosophy while simultaneously considering the compensation levels needed to ensure that our executive compensation program remains competitive based on input and market data provided by the Compensation Committee’s compensation consultant. The Compensation Committee also evaluates whether we are meeting our retention objectives and the potential cost of replacing key named executive officers.
Setting Target Total Direct Compensation
The Compensation Committee conducts an annual review of the compensation arrangements of our executive officers, including our named executive officers. As part of this review, the Compensation Committee evaluates the base salary levels, any sign-on and retention bonuses, and the long-term incentive compensation opportunities of our executive officers and all related performance criteria.
The Compensation Committee does not intend to establish a specific target for formulating the target total direct compensation opportunities of our executive officers. Instead, it evaluates both performance and compensation to ensure that the compensation provided to our executive officers is competitive relative to the compensation paid by similar companies in the technology and internet retail sectors, with particular emphasis on our peer companies as described below.
In making decisions about the compensation of our executive officers, the members of the Compensation Committee rely primarily on considerations of various factors, including the following:
our executive compensation program objectives;
our performance against the financial, operational and strategic objectives established by the Compensation Committee and our Board;
each executive officer’s knowledge, skills, experience, qualifications and tenure relative to other similarly situated executives at the companies in our compensation peer group and/or in selected broad-based compensation surveys;
the scope of each executive officer’s role and responsibilities compared to other similarly situated executives at the companies in our compensation peer group and/or in selected broad-based compensation surveys;
the prior performance of each executive officer, based on a subjective assessment of their contributions to our overall performance, and ability to lead their business unit and work as part of a team;
the potential of each executive officer to contribute to our long-term financial, operational and strategic objectives;
32
Opendoor Technologies Inc. // 2023 Proxy Statement

TABLE OF CONTENTS

our CEO’s compensation relative to that of our other executive officers, particularly our other named executive officers;
our financial performance relative to our peers;
the compensation practices of our compensation peer group and the companies in selected broad-based compensation surveys and the positioning of each executive officer’s compensation in a ranking of peer company compensation levels based on an analysis of competitive market data; and
the recommendations of our CEO with respect to the compensation of our executive officers (except with respect to her own compensation).
These factors provide the framework for compensation decision-making and final decisions by the Compensation Committee or its recommendations to our Board for final decisions regarding the compensation opportunity for each executive officer.
The Compensation Committee does not weigh these factors in any predetermined manner, nor does it apply any formulas in developing its compensation decisions or recommendations. The members of the Compensation Committee consider this information in light of their individual experience, knowledge of the Company, knowledge of the competitive market, knowledge of each executive officer and business judgment in making decisions and recommendations.
Role of Management
In discharging its responsibilities, the Compensation Committee works with members of our management, including our CEO. Our management assists the Compensation Committee by providing information on corporate and individual performance, market compensation data and management’s perspective on compensation matters. The Compensation Committee solicits and reviews our CEO’s proposals with respect to program structures, as well as her recommendations for adjustments to annual base salaries, long-term incentive compensation opportunities and other compensation-related matters for our executive officers, including our named executive officers (except with respect to her own compensation), based on her evaluation of their performance for the prior year.
The Compensation Committee reviews and discusses proposals and recommendations with our CEO and considers them as one factor in determining and approving the compensation of our executive officers or making recommendations to our Board with respect to the compensation of our executive officers. Our CEO also attends meetings of our Board and the Compensation Committee at which executive compensation matters are addressed, except with respect to discussions involving her own compensation.
Role of the Compensation Consultant
The Compensation Committee has the authority to retain an external compensation consultant to assist it by providing information, analysis and other advice relating to our executive compensation program and the decisions resulting from its annual executive compensation review, including the authority to approve the consultant’s reasonable fees and other retention terms. The compensation consultant reports directly to the Compensation Committee and its chair, and serves at the discretion of the Compensation Committee, which reviews the engagement annually.
Since 2020, the Compensation Committee has engaged Compensia, Inc. (“Compensia”) to serve as its compensation consultant to advise on executive compensation matters, including competitive market pay practices for our executive officers, and with the data analysis and selection of the compensation peer group.
In addition to the work Compensia performed in connection with our executive and director compensation practices, Compensia periodically receives requests for information from us or the Compensation Committee pertaining to individual promotions, equity incentive compensation, potential personnel recruitment and other such situations in which market compensation insight may benefit us or the Compensation Committee.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

During 2022, Compensia attended the meetings of the Compensation Committee (both with and without management present) as requested and provided various services, including the following:
the review, analysis and updating of our compensation peer group;
the review and analysis of the base salary levels and long-term incentive compensation opportunities of our executive officers against competitive market data based on the companies in our compensation peer group;
a competitive market assessment for executive-level management, including analyses for potential new hires;
market compensation data to inform revised compensation package for Ms. Wheler in connection with her promotion to Chief Executive Officer;
market compensation data to inform design of executive severance program;
consultation with the Compensation Committee chair and other members between Compensation Committee meetings, including with respect to:
market analysis on stock ownership guidelines;
updates on compensation trends; and
regulatory updates; and
support on other ad hoc matters throughout the year.
The terms of Compensia’s engagement include reporting directly to the Compensation Committee chair. Compensia also coordinated with our management for data collection and informal market comparisons for our executive officers. In 2022, Compensia did not provide any other consulting or other services to us.
The Compensation Committee has evaluated its relationship with Compensia to ensure that it believes that such firm is independent from management. This review process included a review of the services that Compensia provided, the quality of those services and the fees associated with the services provided during 2022. Based on this review, as well as consideration of the factors affecting independence set forth in Exchange Act Rule 10C-1(b)(4) and Rule 5605(d)(3)(D) of the Nasdaq rules, and such other factors as were deemed relevant under the circumstances, the Compensation Committee has determined that no conflict of interest was raised as a result of the work performed by Compensia.
Peer Group and Competitive Positioning
The Compensation Committee believes that comparisons with companies with similar financial characteristics and business profiles are useful guides to evaluate the competitiveness of our executive compensation program and related policies and practices. The Compensation Committee uses data drawn from a select peer group of companies to make decisions with respect to the compensation of our executive officers, including our named executive officers.
The Compensation Committee uses the peer group compensation data as one of several factors in assessing executive pay program design and total equity utilization. We also supplement the data for our peer group with published compensation surveys where appropriate. The Compensation Committee's compensation decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. Benchmark results do not, in and of themselves, determine individual compensation decisions and we do not target specific pay percentiles. Overall, we believe that use of information from the peer group enables the Compensation Committee to create better alignment between executive pay and performance and to help ensure that we can attract and retain high-performing executive leaders.
For both 2021 and 2022, the Compensation Committee evaluated the peer group of companies identified below, as recommended by Compensia and approved by the Compensation Committee in each respective period. The companies in this peer group were selected based on the following primary criteria: (i) public companies headquartered in the United States, (ii) in the same or adjacent industry, including either consumer focused technology-enabled services, real estate services, retail/internet retail, or software and services, (iii) measured at the time of selection as having a comparable market capitalization (between 0.25x and 4.0x of our market capitalization), and (iv) and with gross profit in a range of approximately 0.5x to 2.0x our gross profit over the trailing four fiscal quarters. Compensia further refined the list of peers by evaluating whether the company had high revenue growth, low gross margin and whether it recently became a publicly listed company.

Compensation Elements
For 2022, our executive compensation program consisted of two principal elements – base salary and long-term incentive compensation in the form of equity awards. It also included participation in our executive severance plan and our broad-based health and welfare benefit programs. In addition, certain of our named executive officers also received sign-on, promotion or retention bonus payments for 2022.
Base Salaries
We provide a base salary as a fixed source of compensation for our executive officers, including our named executive officers, allowing them a degree of certainty relative to the portion of their variable compensation, which consists of equity awards with values that are generally tied to the price of our common stock. The Compensation Committee recognizes the importance of base salaries as an element of compensation that helps to attract and retain highly qualified executive talent. The initial base salaries of our executive officers were established at the time they entered into an employment offer letter or confirmatory employment offer letter with us and took into account their qualifications, experience, comparable market data and prior base salary level. The Compensation Committee reviews the annual base salaries of our executive officers, including our named executive officers, as part of its annual review of the compensation arrangements of our executive officers, taking into consideration a competitive market analysis prepared by its compensation consultant, the recommendations of our CEO (except with respect to her own annual base salary) and the factors set forth in “Compensation-Setting Process – Setting Target Total Direct Compensation” above.
In connection with the appointment of Ms. Wheeler and Ms. Schwartz as our CEO and interim CFO, respectively, the Compensation Committee increased their annual salaries, taking into account market data from our peer group and the other factors set forth in “Executive Summary – Leadership Transition and Related Changes to Compensation.” Otherwise, the Compensation Committee determined to maintain the annual base salaries of our other named executive officers for 2022 at their 2021 levels (to the extent such NEO was employed in 2021).

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Long-Term Equity Compensation
We believe that providing long-term incentives in the form of equity awards encourages our executive officers, including our named executive officers, to take a long-term outlook and provides them with an incentive to manage the Company from the perspective of an owner with an equity stake in the business. By providing opportunities for our executive officers, including our named executive officers, to benefit from future successes in the Company through the appreciation of the value of their equity awards, our Board and the Compensation Committee believe that equity awards align our executive officers’ interests and contributions with the long-term interests of our stockholders. In addition, our Board and the Compensation Committee believe that offering meaningful equity ownership in the Company is helpful in retaining our executive officers, including our named executive officers, and other key employees.
Our general practice has been to grant our named executive officers TRSU awards, and in certain circumstances PRSU awards, at the start of employment and for retention purposes. We do not currently have a formal process for granting equity awards on an annual basis. The size and precise terms of the awards are determined by the Compensation Committee.
In 2022, the Compensation Committee granted the equity awards discussed below to Ms. Schwartz and Ms. Schaub. In making its determinations, the Compensation Committee considered a competitive market analysis prepared by its compensation consultant, the recommendations of our CEO, the economic position of the Company, broader economic conditions, our historical compensation structure, the potential dilutive effect of the awards on our stockholders and the other factors set forth in “Compensation-Setting Process – Setting Target Total Direct Compensation” above.
The Compensation Committee also approved a TRSU award for Ms. Wheeler in connection with her promotion to CEO in December 2022, as discussed in “Executive Summary – Leadership Transition and Related Changes to Compensation” above. The TRSU grant was made in January 2023.
Equity Awards for Ms. Schwartz
On February 9, 2022, the Compensation Committee granted to Ms. Schwartz two TRSU awards for retention purposes, each covering 54,907 shares of our common stock. The first retention grant is subject to a two-year vesting schedule, with 1/8th of the units subject to the award vesting in successive equal quarterly installments following June 15, 2022, subject to her continuous service with us through each such vesting date. The second retention grant is subject to a four-year vesting schedule, with 5% of the units subject to the award vesting in eight successive equal quarterly installments following January 15, 2022, and 7.5% of the units vesting in eight successive equal quarterly installments thereafter, subject to her continuous service with us through each such vesting date.
On August 24, 2022, the Compensation Committee granted to Ms. Schwartz a TRSU award for business continuity purposes, covering 77,519 shares of our common stock. This TRSU grant is subject to a two-year vesting schedule, with 25% of the total number of TRSUs vesting on the six-month anniversary of December 15, 2022, and 1/8th of the total units subject to the award vesting on a quarterly basis thereafter, subject to her continuous service with us through each such vesting date.
In connection with her appointment as interim CFO, Ms. Schwartz was granted TRSUs covering 250,000 shares of our common stock on December 20, 2022. Such TRSU grant is subject to a two-year vesting schedule, with 1/8th of the units subject to the award vesting in successive equal quarterly installments following December 15, 2022, subject to her continuous service with us through each such vesting date.
Equity Award for Ms. Schaub
In connection with her commencement of employment as our Chief Legal Officer, and pursuant to her employment offer letter, Ms. Schaub was granted an award of 1,558,441 TRSUs on October 7, 2022. One-third of the total number of TRSUs will vest on September 15, 2023 and the remaining two-thirds will vest in quarterly installments over the next eight subsequent quarters, in each case subject to her continuous service with us through each such vesting date.

No Annual Bonuses for 2022
In 2022, as in past years, we did not maintain an annual cash bonus or other incentive plan for our executive officers, including our named executive officers. Instead, our Board and the Compensation Committee relied primarily on the long-term incentive compensation opportunities granted to our executive officers.
We implemented an annual cash incentive opportunity for Ms. Wheeler in connection with her appointment as CEO that will be effective for fiscal year 2023, as discussed in “Executive Summary – Leadership Transition and Related Changes to Compensation” above. The Compensation Committee continues to evaluate whether to include annual cash incentives as part of the compensation packages of our other named executive officers in the future, in order to motivate and reward achievement of our annual strategic goals, which would be paid only if we achieve our short-term goals, consistent with our pay for performance philosophy.
Sign-On and Retention Bonuses
In order to attract top talent, we from time to time provide sign-on and retention compensation to our executive officers.
In connection with the commencement of Ms. Schaub’s employment in September 2022, we approved a cash sign-on and retention bonus in the amount of $525,000, $350,000 of which was paid on the first regularly scheduled payment date after her employment start date and the remaining $175,000 of which will be paid within 30 days after the first anniversary of her employment start date. If Ms. Schaub resigns without “good reason” or we terminate her employment for “cause” (each as defined in her employment offer letter) prior to the second anniversary of her employment start date, Ms. Schaub is required to repay a pro-rata portion of the after-tax portion of any amount paid prior to her termination of employment. We believe that this bonus was an appropriate incentive to encourage Ms. Schaub to join us and to help retain Ms. Schaub through the second anniversary of her employment start date, in addition to Ms. Schaub’s equity award discussed above.
In connection with the hire of Mr. Morillo in January 2021, we approved a cash sign-on and retention bonus in the aggregate amount of $3,800,000, $1,500,000 of which was paid as a sign-on bonus in January 2021, $1,150,000 of which was paid as a retention bonus in January 2022 after the first anniversary of his employment start date and $1,150,000 of which was paid as a retention bonus in 2023 within 30 days after the second anniversary of his employment start date, subject to his continuous active employment with us through such anniversary date. We believed that these bonuses were appropriate as an incentive for Mr. Morillo to join us and to help retain Mr. Morillo through the second anniversary of his employment start date.
Special One-Time Bonus
In connection with the appointment of Ms. Schwartz as our interim CFO, the Compensation Committee approved a one-time cash bonus to Ms. Schwartz in the amount of $225,000, payable in four equal quarterly installments commencing on February 15th, 2023. We believe such a bonus was appropriate to recognize Ms. Schwartz’s increased responsibilities in her new role and to retain her during this critical transition period for the Company.
Health and Welfare Benefits
Our named executive officers are eligible to participate in the same employee benefit plans, and on the same terms and conditions, as all other full-time, salaried U.S. employees, subject to the terms and eligibility requirements of such plans. These benefits include medical, dental and vision insurance, business travel insurance, an employee assistance program, health and dependent care flexible spending accounts, basic life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment insurance, short-term and long-term disability insurance, commuter benefits and reimbursement for mobile phone coverage.
We also sponsor a Section 401(k) retirement savings plan (the “Section 401(k) Plan”) that provides our executive officers, including our named executive officers, with an opportunity to save for retirement on a tax-advantaged basis subject to the limits imposed by the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), to the same extent as our other eligible full-time employees. Participants are able to defer up to 90% of their eligible compensation subject to applicable annual limits under the Code. All participants’ interests in their deferrals are 100% vested when contributed. Currently, we do not match employee contributions to the Section 401(k) Plan. We believe that providing a vehicle for tax-deferred retirement savings through our Section 401(k) Plan adds to the overall desirability of our executive compensation package and further incentivizes our employees, including our named executive officers.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

We design our employee benefits programs to be affordable and competitive in relation to the market as well as compliant with applicable laws and practices. We adjust our employee benefits programs as needed based upon regular monitoring of applicable laws and practices and the competitive market.
Perquisites and Other Personal Benefits
Currently, we do not view perquisites or other personal benefits as a significant component of our executive compensation program. Accordingly, we do not generally provide perquisites or other personal benefits to our named executive officers, except as generally made available to our employees or in situations where we believe it is appropriate to assist an individual in the performance of their duties, to make them more efficient and effective and for recruitment and retention purposes. During 2022, our named executive officers did not receive perquisites or other personal benefits that were, in the aggregate, $10,000 or more for each individual.
In the future, we may provide perquisites or other personal benefits in limited circumstances, such as those described in the preceding paragraph. All future practices with respect to perquisites or other personal benefits will be approved and subject to periodic review by the Compensation Committee.
Employment Offer Letters
We have entered into written employment offer letters with each of our named executive officers. Each of these employment offer letters was approved prior to the Business Combination by the compensation committee and/or board of directors of Opendoor Labs Inc., or, in the case of Ms. Schaub’s offer letter, by our Compensation Committee. We believe that these arrangements were necessary to secure the services or the continued service of these individuals in a highly competitive job market.
Each of these employment agreements does not have a specific term, provides for “at will” employment (meaning that either we or the named executive officer may terminate the employment relationship at any time without cause) and generally set forth the named executive officer’s base salary, eligibility to participate in our employee benefit plans and programs in effect for similarly situated employees during their employment, in some instances provided for a sign-on bonus and/or retention payment and, in certain instances, provided for certain of the named executive officers to receive equity awards on the terms and conditions as set forth in the employment offer letter.
In addition, each named executive officer either agreed to execute and be bound by our Confidential Information and Inventions Assignment Agreement or confirmed that the named executive officer agreed to continue to be bound by the Confidential Information and Inventions Assignment Agreement they had previously executed, which contains, among other things, restrictive covenants pursuant to which such officers agree (i) to refrain from soliciting our customers during the term of their employment and (ii) to refrain from soliciting our employees during the term of their employment and for a period of 12 months thereafter. The Company's standard Confidential Information and Invention Assignment Agreement for executive officers does not contain any non-competition restrictive covenants to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
Except for the employment offer letter with Ms. Wheeler, as amended in connection with her role transition in December 2022, the employment offer letters do not provide for any severance benefits. In connection with the appointment of Ms. Wheeler as our CEO, we and Ms. Wheeler entered into an amendment to Ms. Wheeler’s existing offer letter agreement. Pursuant to such amendment, if we terminate Ms. Wheeler’s employment without “cause” or if Ms. Wheeler resigns for “good reason” (as each term is defined in her offer letter agreement), subject to her execution of a release of claims, she will be entitled to cash severance equal to one times her annual base salary plus target bonus, 12 months of health benefits continuation, and 12 months accelerated vesting of her outstanding time-based equity awards.
Post-Employment Compensation
Severance Plan
On December 22, 2022, our Board, upon recommendation of our Compensation Committee, adopted an Executive Severance Plan (the “Severance Plan”), effective as of the same date, under which our executive officers are eligible to receive severance payments and benefits in connection with certain qualifying terminations of their employment, subject to the conditions set forth in the Severance Plan. The Compensation Committee designed the Severance Plan following a survey of the practices of the Company’s peers, a number of which provide similar benefits to some or all of their executive officers. The Severance Plan benefits are comparable to those offered by such peers. The Severance Plan is intended to

provide a consistent framework to address covered terminations and help maintain our executive officers’ continued focus on their assigned duties to maximize stockholder value if there is a potential change in control transaction. Each of our 2022 named executive officers other than Mr. Low Ah Kee (who voluntarily resigned as an executive officer on December 1, 2022) and Mr. Morillo (who voluntarily resigned as an executive officer on February 21, 2023) is eligible to participate in the Severance Plan.
The Severance Plan provides that upon our termination of a participant’s employment without “cause”, or upon a resignation by the participant for “good reason”, in either case within the period beginning three months before and ending 12 months following a “change in control” (each as defined in the Severance Plan), the participant shall receive (i) a cash severance payment equal to the participant’s then-current base salary multiplied by 1.5 for our CEO or 1.0 for our other named executive officers, paid in installments over an 18- or 12-month period, respectively, (ii) a pro rata portion of the participant’s target annual cash bonus for the year of termination, paid in installments over 18 months for our CEO or 12 months for our other named executive officers, (iii) payment or reimbursement of the cost of COBRA premiums for the participant and the participant’s dependents for up to 18 months for our CEO or 12 months for our other named executive officers, and (iv) 100% acceleration of the vesting of the participant’s then-outstanding unvested equity awards that are subject solely to time-based vesting requirements.
Upon any other termination by us without cause or upon a resignation by an eligible participant for good reason, the participant will receive (i) a cash severance payment equal to the sum of the participant’s then-current base salary plus target bonus, in the case of our CEO, and a cash severance payment equal to the participant’s then-current base salary multiplied by 0.5, in the case of our other named executive officers, paid in installments over 12 months for our CEO and six months for our other named executive officers, (ii) payment or reimbursement of the cost of the COBRA premiums for the participant and the participant’s dependents for up to 12 months, and (iii) acceleration of the vesting of the portion of the participant’s then-outstanding unvested equity awards that are subject solely to time-based vesting requirements and that would otherwise vest within the 12- or six-month period after termination for our CEO or our other named executive officers, respectively (or, 12 months if any NEO other than our CEO has been employed for less than 12 months).
For purposes of the Severance Plan, “cause” has the meaning set forth in the participant’s offer letter agreement, employment agreement or similar agreement with the participant’s employer, or, in the absence of such agreement, or if such agreement does not have a definition of “cause,” means: (a) the participant’s commission of any act that constitutes a felony or any crime involving dishonesty or moral turpitude, (b) the participant’s engaging in any act of fraud or embezzlement, whether or not related to the business of the Company, or any other act of material dishonesty against the Company or any of its Affiliates, (c) any material breach by the participant of any offer letter agreement, employment agreement or similar agreement with the participant’s employer, or of the Employee Confidential Information and Invention Assignment Agreement or similar agreement or of any material written policy of the Company and, if curable, the participant’s failure to cure such breach within 30 days after receiving written notice thereof; (d) the willful and continued failure by the participant to substantially perform the participant’s duties to the Company (other than any such failure resulting from the Participant’s incapacity due to physical or mental illness), after written demand for substantial performance is delivered by the Company that identifies with reasonable specificity the manner in which the Company believes the participant has not substantially performed the participant’s duties, which is not cured within 30 days after notice of such failure has been given to the participant by the Company; (e) the willful engaging by the participant in misconduct or gross neglect (including any conduct that is in violation of the written employee workplace policies of the Company) that is injurious to the Company, monetarily, in reputation or otherwise; or (f) any other intentional act causing material damage to the Company’s business, property or reputation.
For purposes of the Severance Plan, “good reason” has the meaning set forth in the participant’s offer letter agreement, employment agreement or similar agreement with the participant’s employer, or, in the absence of such agreement, or if such agreement does not have a definition of “good reason,” means the occurrence of any of the following events without the participant’s written consent: (a) a reduction by the Company or its successor of more than 20% in the participant’s rate of annual base salary, unless such reduction is in connection with and proportional to reductions to the base salary reductions of other executives of the Company; (b) a material reduction in the participant’s job responsibilities, duties or authority (provided that a mere change in title to an employment position that is substantially similar to the prior employment position shall not constitute a material reduction in job responsibilities, duty or authority); or (c) a change in the geographic location of the Participant’s principal place of employment to any location more than 50 miles from the Participant’s current principal place of employment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, “good reason” will not exist for purposes of the Severance Plan unless, within 30 days after the initial occurrence of a circumstance that the participant believes in good faith to constitute good reason, the Participant delivers written notice to the Company setting forth with
Opendoor Technologies Inc. // 2023 Proxy Statement

specificity such circumstance the Participant believes in good faith constitutes good reason, the Company fails to cure any claimed event of good reason (if capable of cure) within 30 days after receipt of such notice, and the participant actually terminates their employment no later than 30 days following the expiration of the Company’s cure period.
To receive the severance, the participant must execute and deliver a release of claims in favor of the Company and continue to comply with restrictive covenants applicable to the participant.
We are not obligated to provide tax reimbursements or “gross-ups” to any of our executive officers, including our named executive officers, in the event that the compensation and benefits received under the Severance Plan or otherwise would result in the imposition of excise taxes on the named executive officer under Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code.
We believe that having in place reasonable and competitive post-employment compensation arrangements, including in the event of a change in control of the Company, is essential to attracting and retaining highly-qualified executive officers. The Compensation Committee does not consider the specific amounts payable under the post-employment compensation arrangements when determining our named executive officers’ compensation. We do believe, however, that these arrangements are necessary to offer competitive compensation packages.
Arrangements with Andrew Low Ah Kee
Prior to his resignation from employment, we were party to a letter agreement with Mr. Low Ah Kee, dated as of January 31, 2022, providing for 100% accelerated vesting of his outstanding equity awards subject solely to service-based vesting conditions upon his resignation from the Company for “good reason” or termination without “cause” on or with or within 12 months following a change in control. As discussed above, Mr. Low Ah Kee’s employment with the Company has terminated, and he is continuing as an advisor through June 2023.
In addition, the PRSU award agreement with Mr. Low Ah Kee provided that, in the event of certain involuntary terminations of employment by Mr. Low Ah Kee prior to the time that the performance-based vesting criteria of his PRSU award has been satisfied, the PRSU award would remain outstanding and eligible to vest as to performance when the applicable performance-based vesting criteria are satisfied, provided they are satisfied within 60 days after such termination of employment. In the event such performance-based vesting criteria are not satisfied by the end of such 60-day period, the PRSU award will expire. In the event of a change in control, the performance-based vesting criteria will be determined by reference to the value of shares paid for all of the Company's common stock or, if the change in control is structured as a stock-for-stock acquisition, the value of the acquirer's shares shall be valued based on the 60-day VWAP ending on and including the trading day occurring on the day prior to the consummation of such change in control. The TRSU and PRSU awards held by Mr. Low Ah Kee were forfeited upon his termination of employment without payment of consideration.
Hedging and Pledging of Securities
We believe it is improper and inappropriate for any person associated with Opendoor to engage in short-term or speculative transactions involving the Company's securities. Our directors, officers and employees are, therefore, prohibited from engaging in short sales and buying or selling puts, calls, options or other derivative securities of the Company.
Our Insider Trading Policy also prohibits our directors, officers and employees from purchasing any financial instruments (including prepaid variable forward contracts, equity swaps, collars and exchange funds) or otherwise engaging in transactions that are designed to or have the effect of hedging or offsetting any decrease in the market value of the Company's equity securities (whether they are granted to such individual by the Company as part of such person's compensation or otherwise held, directly or indirectly, by such individual), or that may cause a director, officer or employee to no longer have the same objectives as the Company’s other stockholders.
In addition, we prohibit our executive officers, all other employees and the non-employee members of our Board from holding our securities in a margin account without the prior approval of the Board or duly authorized committees thereof. We also prohibit pledging our securities as collateral for a loan without the prior consent of our Chief Legal Officer.

Stock Ownership Guidelines
In December 2022, we established stock ownership guidelines for our executive officers and directors. Within five years of the establishment of the guidelines (or becoming subject to the guidelines, if later), our CEO is required to hold the lesser of vested shares of the Company’s common stock equal to six times annual base salary, or 450,000 shares; other executive officers are required to hold the lesser of vested shares of the Company’s common stock equal to three times annual base salary, or 225,000 shares; and directors are required to hold the lesser of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to five times their annual cash retainer or 60,000 shares. Only issued shares are counted toward satisfaction of the ownership requirement. Accordingly, unvested equity awards (including both time- and performance-based) and unexercised stock options, if any, do not count toward satisfying the executive stock ownership requirement.
Clawbacks
While our CEO and CFO are subject to any recovery rights that are provided under applicable laws, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, we have not yet adopted a compensation recovery policy as required under the Dodd-Frank Act. We are reviewing the final clawback rule adopted by the SEC that implements the applicable provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the Nasdaq’s related proposed listing standard, in each case relating to recoupment of incentive-based compensation. We will implement a clawback policy in accordance with the new listing standard when the new listing standard becomes final.
Tax and Accounting Considerations
The Compensation Committee takes the applicable tax and accounting requirements into consideration in designing and overseeing our executive compensation program.
Deductibility of Executive Compensation
For federal income tax purposes, publicly-traded companies may be prohibited under Section 162(m) of the Code from deducting employee compensation in excess of $1 million paid to their chief executive officer, chief financial officer, any other executive officer whose total compensation is required to be reported to stockholders under the Exchange Act by reason of such individual being among the three highest compensated executive officers for the tax year and any executive officer who was subject to the deduction limit in any tax year beginning after December 31, 2016. Even if Section 162(m) may limit the compensation deduction, our Board and the Compensation Committee believe our compensation policies and practices should be designed to help us meet our established goals and objectives. While the Compensation Committee will consider the impact of the Section 162(m) deduction limitation, it intends to continue to compensate our executive officers, including our named executive officers, in a manner that is in the best interest of our stockholders and reserves the right to make compensation decisions that may not be deductible under Section 162(m) where the Compensation Committee determines the compensation to be appropriate and in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders.
Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation
The Compensation Committee takes accounting considerations into account in designing compensation plans and arrangements for our executive officers and other employees. Chief among these is the Financial Accounting Standard Board’s Accounting Standards Codification, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) (“ASC Topic 718”), the standard which governs the accounting treatment of certain stock-based compensation. Among other things, ASC Topic 718 requires us to record a compensation expense in our income statement for all equity awards granted to our executive officers and other employees. This compensation expense is based on the grant date “fair value” of the equity award and, in most cases, will be recognized straight-line over the award’s requisite service period (which, generally, will correspond to the award’s vesting schedule). This compensation expense is also reported in the compensation tables below, even though recipients may never realize any value from their equity awards.
