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. We process more than $3 billion in mortgages and consumer loans daily, helping millions of consumers get into homes and gain access to the capital they need to lead better lives.
Reducing friction and helping consumers access loans is only one part of the puzzle for home buyers. As Blend expands we are taking a consumer first approach and seeking to remove friction and add transparency to all aspects of the home buying process.
While Home insurance is a requirement for all loans to close, the existing experience is generally offline and confusing for consumers. The Home Insurance team is looking to solve that by bringing the shopping experience online and adding transparency to what policies have the best coverage at the best price. We iterate quickly, working closely with product, design, sales, BD, legal/compliance to clear any road blocks we encounter. As part of the team, you will play a major role in guiding the direction of this fast growing project.
