Content Strategist/Writer

San Francisco
Design
Full-time

Homeownership is a part of the American Dream. And yet the process is stressful, time-consuming, and full of uncertainty. When you're making one of the biggest and most important financial decisions of your life, you should feel confident, empowered, and happy. At Blend, we are making this a reality.

We’re an enterprise technology company building a product that will improve the entire lending ecosystem. For homebuyers, this 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 repeating burdensome, manual tasks. Our product doesn't just affect the lives of a few people in the Bay Area— but people all over America. We are laying the groundwork for a better-functioning, more sustainable lending industry. 

We're building a smart, tight-knit, diverse team of problem solvers who want to change this industry for the better, and positively impact millions of people in the process. We are motivated by challenge, and nothing excites us more than solving hard problems. We work hard, together, and with respect.

We’re looking for a Content Strategist to join the design team, partnering closely with product, marketing and other key stakeholders to develop and steward the voice of Blend. You’ll help establish strategies for clear and cohesive messaging frameworks that can scale across channels, as well as managing and producing web content and in-product copy. We’re looking for someone who is passionate about pioneering simplicity and clarity in an industry that is archaic and complex.
