Product Manager - Home Insurance

United States Product

Blend helps lenders maximize their digital agility. Our digital lending platform is used by Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank, and other leading financial institutions to increase customer acquisition, improve productivity, and accelerate the delivery of any banking product across every channel. Through our software, we enable our customers to process an average of more than $5 billion in loans per day, helping consumers get into homes and gain access to the capital they need to lead better lives.

 

The Homeownership Journey team is growing. This team is responsible for helping our customers deliver a seamless end-to-end home ownership experience to end consumers, not just a seamless mortgage experience. People don’t want mortgages, they want a new home. Today that process unfortunately involves stress, friction, a lot of siloed service providers, and can be expensive. We believe we can change that and make it a seamless, delightful experience, and put money back in the consumer’s pocket as we do so.
 
Our Home Insurance product helps borrowers easily provide evidence of insurance to their lender – either by connecting to their existing home insurance provider if they have one or helping them find a great policy on our marketplace. This in turn helps lenders process loans more efficiently and deliver a more seamless experience to their customers.
 
As a product manager on the home insurance team you’ll help expand our capabilities to make it even faster and easier for borrowers to find and buy great home insurance if they need and seamlessly provide evidence of insurance to their lender. This is an exciting opportunity to work on a highly impactful consumer facing experience and contribute to improving a crucial milestone in a borrower’s homeownership journey – the one where they insure what is likely the largest asset they’ll own.
