Software Engineer, Backend - Fulfillment Team

San Francisco, New York Engineering Full-time

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 $3.5 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.

Blend is in a very interesting phase right now. We’re no longer a startup that’s just building a product as quickly as possible. Now, it's a balance between moving fast, but also having a more long term view of how our software needs to be architected. The Fulfillment team is currently working on several high impact projects and we’re seeking a senior backend engineer to influence and help move our team forward.  We are driving the architecture and adoption of our consumer banking platform that all our new verticals will be built upon.  We’re also building a mortgage-processing engine that can automate all the manual work that a loan processor does today. We want to take Blend, which has found product-market fit in a market that has infinite possibilities and scale it 50x. 

How you'll contribute:

  • You’ll work with and contribute to our open-source projects like https://github.com/blend/go-sdk/
  • You’ll help build the future of how income, asset and credit verification is done for all cross vertical services
  • You’ll help build our fast-tracked loan-processing solution that makes it super easy for loan processors to make loan decisions
