Mortgage Expert

San Francisco
Product
Full-time

Thousands of times every year, someone will go through the process of buying a home. This 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 focusing on building a product that will improve the entire lending ecosystem. For homebuyers, this means a clear, guided, and, dare we say it, even fun 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. 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.

We're building a strong, tight-knit, diverse team of problem solvers who want to change this industry for the better, and 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.

As a Product Expert at Blend, you will work directly with the Product Management team, and play an integral part in building the technology that powers the future of lending. You bring extensive knowledge and expertise about the lending industry and will advise internal stakeholders on various facets of the mortgage lending process, including originations, loan processing, and underwriting. You will be customer-facing, and will interface between employees at Blend and our customers. You are a problem-solver at heart, have a bias for action, and are willing to build strength in areas of the industry that you don't currently possess.
