Software Engineer, Frontend - Digital Closings

San Francisco, New York, Remote 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.

The final step to buying a home is called the closing ceremony. This is one of the more painful parts of the buying process. Historically this involves a large number of emails or phone calls between the buyer and title company, meeting a notary in person on your closing day, and reviewing and signing a large number of documents with the notary. Our job is to reduce the friction in the closing ceremony. This involves supporting online scheduling, guiding a borrower through the closing documents before the day of signing, and allowing the borrower to interact with a notary remotely. All of these features involve building new workflows, working with vendors to provide features such as remote notarization, and working with our lenders to integrate their existing systems into Blend Close.
