Product Designer

San Francisco
Design
Full-time

At Blend, we’re dedicated to improving lending. We’re an enterprise technology company, but our product affects the most important purchase most people will make in their lifetime—their home. For homebuyers, our product means a clear, guided path to a new home. For lenders, it means modern, easy-to-use tools that let employees spend their time helping customers, rather than on repetitive, manual tasks. By aligning and modernizing this archaic industry, we believe everybody wins.

We need someone who’s driven to solve hard problems—the harder the better. We’re motivated by the fact that our product won’t just affect the lives of a few people in the Bay Area—it affects people all over America, not to mention a foundational part of the U.S. economy. Founded in 2012 by former Palantir leaders, we’re currently backed by Founders Fund, Andreessen Horowitz and other prominent investors.

Product Designers translate user insights into decisions that make our products useful and usable. From developing concepts and specs, to designing new interactions and components, your job will be bringing simplicity and transparency to the complex, confusing industry of consumer finance.

The ideal candidate will have a proactive mindset towards making things happen. We want designers who understand the big picture, take ownership, and solve problems wherever they arise. Domain knowledge in enterprise software or home lending is not required.
