A Better opportunity:

Better is looking for a Closing Manager to join the team! This person will work closely with our Head of Closing to help lead production flow and pipeline management of our closing associates.

  • Develop creative and innovative ways to improve team performance
  • Handle and monitor overall performance measurements and pipeline management

About You:

  • Proven track record in a customer-facing role within mortgage, financial services, insurance, banking or FinTech. Previous direct mortgage experience is preferable, but is not required

  • Strong understanding of production and pipeline projections
  • High emotional intelligence and customer-centric mentality
  • Proven demonstrations of improvement and tangible results
  • A proven leader and mentor

We’ve recently joined forces in partnership with Ally Bank, and our backers have helped build some of the most transformative tech and finance companies in history.
