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 homeownership 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 we are 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 raised $55M from top tier investors, including Andreessen Horowitz, Bain Capital Ventures, Conversion Capital, Zigg Capital, and Index Ventures. 

We believe that our team is our greatest competitive advantage and take pride in having a team of exceptional humans. As a team, we 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 be part of building the infrastructure that will power the future of the finance industry, we would love to hear from you!

Who you are:
You're looking to join an early-stage team to build something BIG and industry changing. You love coming up with creative solutions to complex problems, working with customers to understand their goals and needs, and managing large scale, enterprise-level projects.

You are deeply customer focused, empathetic, and comfortable advocating for both the needs of the customer as well as the needs of the company. You aren’t intimidated about saying no when necessary to get to the right outcome.

You have experience navigating large scale projects that touch a wide variety of executive, business, and technical stakeholders, as well as experience juggling several different workstreams at a time.

You understand how software is deployed within mature enterprise organizations and you marry that with tight project planning and actioning.

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.

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

    • lead end to end implementation projects with our clients, from sales handoff through user testing and post-go-live, managing multiple stakeholders and critical timelines, all while ensuring we set the foundation for our customers ongoing success.
    • become a Vesta product expert, understanding the nuances of how our product supports our customer’s wide ranging needs, overseeing the configuration and customization of the LOS, and acting as a solutions consultant throughout the implementation lifecycle.

    • build strong relationships with our customer stakeholders, acting as a trusted advisor and single point of contact for all implementation related work.

    • Note: We don't expect you to come in understanding every nuance of the mortgage industry. However, being successful in this role will require a high degree of curiosity and willingness to understand the mortgage ecosystem.
