A Better company

It’s hard not to be excited about mortgages when you’re actively upending the conventions of a $13 trillion dollar business that impacts over 200 million Americans.

At Better, we’re building a next-generation mortgage lender from the ground up. Our team combines leading software engineers from tech giants like Google and Spotify with financial talent from firms like Blackstone and Bridgewater, creating a hybrid institution unlike any other.

Rife with antiquated processes, the home finance industry has remained fundamentally unchanged since the 1970s. As we break down the entrenchments that bar so many from the benefits of homeownership, we adhere to three basic principles:

  • Humans are better than computers at expressing empathy, understanding individual situations, and creating solutions to help people. Let them.
  • Computers are more efficient than humans at working with massive data sets, performing complex calculations, and validating thousands of rules. Use them.
  • The rules of the status quo are broken. Change them.

Join our mortgage revolution.

A Better opportunity

Better is looking for Analysts to join the team. This person will be responsible for conducting detailed credit analysis of loan applications and managing the collection of all required loan documentation to obtain final credit approval. If you have a general interest and aptitude for finance and technology, we’d love to hear from you. The ideal candidate will be a highly organized communicator capable of making sound decisions while maintaining composure in a fast-paced environment.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Learn the ‘ins-and-outs’ of the mortgage business quickly and become an expert in consumer finance (e.g., review of income, assets, credit, and property)
  • Drive the continuous re-engineering of our mortgage production process by thinking critically about how we can leverage technology to resolve operational gaps/challenges
  • Verify and analyze all necessary financial information and documentation
  • Calculate qualifying ratios, determine creditworthiness
  • Request and manage organization of borrower loan documentation

Attributes we value

  • Strong communication, organization, and time management skills
  • Ability to troubleshoot and solve problems independently
  • Ability to maintain composure in a fast-paced environment
  • Perform well in team environments
  • An attitude of continuous improvement (always looking for ways to improve/optimize our process)
  • Willingness to hustle and “do whatever it takes” to accomplish the mission
