Product Manager - Title

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 title product speeds up the loan process for consumers and loan teams by streamlining the closing experience and automating property checks. As a product manager, you will refine the strategy, roadmap, and execution for our title product. It’s a cliché, but to a large degree this is like a startup within a startup. You’ll partner closely with the title team to ensure the complete consumer experience, not just the digital experience, is magical for the consumer and the other constituents (loan officer, title agents, etc.).
 
This is a unique opportunity to build a unique and transformational product, service, and business leveraging the amazing foundation of Blend’s existing product and relationships provide.
