Product Designer

San Francisco, CA
Design
Full-time

As a user-centric company, we believe design is essential for us to understand who we’re serving and how. In an industry where design is thought of merely as making things pretty, we’re blazing a trail for a different kind of thinking. In an effort to modernize the massively antiquated and frustratingly inefficient mortgage process, we’re re-imagining a $10 trillion industry. What if, instead of being a headache, financing your home was empowering and intuitive? What if your bank empowered you with the tools to help you understand your options?

Our Product Designer will be taking complex ideas and turning them into understandable and delightful products. You will create educational tools that will clarify financial terms and principles, and guide people through landmark financial moments. You will be instrumental to every part of our business, from our consumer product, internal processes, to our marketing needs.

We are driven by our mission to improve people’s lives and ultimately transform the way lending works, and believe that the only way to do it is to foster a culture of creativity, collaboration, community and openness.
