Blend Labs is fixing the buying experience for one of the most important purchases people make - their home. Home lending is a $10 trillion vertical that hasn’t kept pace with technology, so we’re bringing banks and their customers the consumer-grade tools they deserve. At Blend, top engineers and designers from Palantir, Google, Stanford, and Caltech have joined forces with industry experts to disrupt the archaic systems in use today. We're founded by former Palantir engineers and backed by Peter Thiel, Andreessen Horowitz, and other prominent investors. Your job will be tackling the complex, slow-moving legacy of the home lending industry. You'll use your insights to make our products useful and usable. 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.
