Mortgage Process Analyst

If suboptimal processes make your skin crawl, and you're the type of person who prefers to only raise problems along with a brainstorm of possible solutions, then this is the position for you. The Mortgage Process Analyst at Clara will play a key role on the team, bridging the partnership between Mortgage Operations and Product Development. You'll dig through current processes, weeding out inefficiencies in production and leading the implementation of solutions that improve our ability to deliver an empowering borrower experience. We describe ourselves as a union of a mortgage bank and a software company, and in this role you epitomize that combination: your deep knowledge of the mortgage process means that you’re uniquely positioned to identify the nuanced pain-points in the system and prescribe targeted solutions.

Clara is a modern, proven, technology-enabled lender backed by top venture capital firms. Based in downtown San Francisco, we’re a diverse team of professionals with backgrounds that bring together the best of Silicon Valley tech, financial services, the mortgage industry and the federal government – a rare combination that uniquely positions us to solve the biggest problem in consumer finance. We are driven by our mission to improve people’s lives and ultimately transform the way lending works, and believe that the only way to do it is to foster a culture of creativity, collaboration, community and openness. Come join us!
