Product Manager - Home Insurance, Homeownership Journey

San Francisco, New York, Remote Product 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.

The Homeownership Journey team is growing. This team is responsible for helping our customers deliver a seamless end-to-end overall home buying and ownership experience to end consumers. People don’t want mortgages, they want a new home that they’re excited about. 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 the homeownership journey a seamless, delightful experience, and put money back in the consumer’s pocket as we do so.

Our home insurance product and service helps consumers find the right insurance solution for what for most people is the most expensive asset they own. In this role, you will help us take that solution to the next level by figuring out how we can deliver a next generation home insurance solution to end consumers. This includes exploring how we can transform the shopping and purchasing experience, as well as ways the insurance product(the financial product) itself might be improved.
