Blend is seeking an experienced Pricing Strategist to join the product marketing team and coordinate pricing policy across the Blend portfolio of products.

Today, we partner with financial institutions of all sizes to enable the processing of more than $4B in mortgages, home equity, and consumer loans per day.
