Manager, Product Management

San Francisco 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 Consumer Banking team is growing. This team is responsible for delivering instantaneous and personalized financing experiences across a financial institution’s entire portfolio of products. You heard that right - the entire portfolio of consumer banking products. We’re building the products and platform that catapult  Blend into a much larger market (outside of our flagship mortgage product). 

As a Manager, Product Management, you will own the strategy, roadmap, and execution for our consumer banking platform. The consumer banking business has achieved product-market fit and is entering the hyper growth phase. We’re pushing the boundaries of what it means to access and provide financial products, constantly validating our ideas with customers and data, and delivering value at massive scale. The platform underpins the long-term success of both the consumer banking business and Blend as a whole. Sound interesting? Read on.
