Full Time, Remote
What we're doing
Owning a home is a foundational part of building financial security and wealth in America. However, the tools and technology that support home ownership are antiquated, dependent on things like fax machines, handwritten documentation, and hours of manual review.
We're here to change it.

Vesta is the next generation system of record to power the multi-trillion mortgage market. We believe that mortgage infrastructure is overdue for a core transformation – that in order to build a fully automated process and fully digital customer journeys, lenders will have to adopt a system of record platform that is modern, open, and orchestrated by best-in-class software workflows.

Who we are
Our founding team is no stranger to the complexities of the financial industry. As early employees at Blend, they spent years together focused on creating modern cloud infrastructure for banks. Now, with Vesta, they are transforming the mortgage industry by creating the most flexible, open and automated origination experience, benefitting financial institutions and their customers.

And, we're not alone.

We've received $5M in seed financing from top tier investors, including Conversion Capital, Bain Capital Ventures, and Index Ventures.

Our team is small, but mighty. We are a collection of humans who value humility, empathy, self-awareness, and an orientation towards action. If this sounds like you and you're excited by the idea of getting in at the ground level to build the infrastructure that will power the future of the financial industry, we would love to hear from you!

Who you are
You're looking to join an early-stage team to build something BIG, something industry changing. You love complex problems and nuanced spaces and spending time learning from experts (users, customer buyers/executives, industry partners). You take pride in being able to distill and synthesize complex learnings into crisp insights, and sharing those learnings with the team comes as second nature to you.

Teammates and customers have described you as "curious" and "humble" - in a space as complex and old as mortgage, our customers are the experts. You understand that, but also can marry their domain expertise and knowledge with a firm understanding of technology and user experience to help the team ship robust, elegant solutions to customer problems.

You're a company builder and team player - you're excited to shape and grow the product alongside the culture and operating rhythm of the company. Bonus points if you have previously worked within the finance industry and/or on enterprise products.

About the role
As an early product manager at Vesta, you'll work closely with the founders and the team to:

    • Become an industry expert, providing the mortgage and business context necessary to the team to build a product that meets customer needs
    • Ship early iterations of the Vesta product, working with and facilitating collaboration across cross-functional stakeholders
    • Roadmap across our core product work streams - core platform, process management and automation, and developer and partner ecosystem
    • Build a world-class team and company
    • Note: we don't expect you to come in understanding the nuances of the mortgage industry. However, being successful in this role will require a high degree of curiosity and willingness to understand the mortgage ecosystem.
