Lead Front End Engineer

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.
