Software Engineer - Fulfillment Team at Blend
San Francisco, CA, US

Blend makes the process of getting a loan simpler, faster, and safer. With its industry-leading digital lending platform, Blend helps financial institutions like Wells Fargo and U.S. Bank increase productivity and deliver exceptional customer experiences. The company processes nearly $2 billion in loans daily, helping millions of consumers get into homes and gain access to the capital they need to lead better lives.

 

Our mission in the fulfillment team at Blend is to significantly reduce the lender’s cost to fund a loan and we do this in a variety of ways. We work to structure and aggregate disparate data sources to automate highly manual and repetitive tasks. We use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to digitize data locked within physically uploaded documents. We leverage strategic partnerships with secondary market investors (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) and utilize their warranty investor programs to reduce the need for certain follow-ups to be delivered. This team also aims to make banking data more open by implementing standards like FS-ISAC, hence pushing the entire banking industry forward. Our team is just getting started in building out these products and is looking for a top-tier engineer to help take them to the next level.
