Data Analyst

San Francisco
Engineering
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 Greylock, Founders Fund, Andreessen Horowitz and other prominent investors.

The Data Analyst will support data needs across our growing company. As an early member of our analytics team, you will help to define how we work with data and influence decision making throughout Blend with your insightful analysis and reporting. You will work closely with our Data Engineering teams, gaining expertise in data analysis, visualization, and infrastructure.

Our ideal Data Analyst is passionate about data, insights, and data-driven decision making. She or he has experience working in SQL and Python, has solid foundations in statistics, and is very effective in communication.
