Staff Software Engineer - Front End

We’re LendingHome. We’re on a mission to revolutionize the world of mortgages and put the power, and the keys, where they belong—in your hands.

 The Company:

LendingHome, ranked by Forbes as one of the 50 hottest fintech companies to look out for in 2018, brings together the best people and most advanced technology to reimagine the mortgage process from the ground up. Our goal is to be the best way to get a mortgage. In the process of chasing this big goal: we’ve become the fastest growing marketplace lender to date, have grown to over 300 staff, raised $167MM in venture capital, and are uniquely positioned to be the world’s leading mortgage marketplace. LendingHome is growing rapidly towards becoming the next great financial services brand powered by the most advanced mortgage platform in the world.

The Acquisition Team:

Our mission is to raise awareness of LendingHome and its products by creating a compelling first-time experience that delights our customers and elevates our brand. You’ll be close partners with Sales, Marketing & Design to take on tasks such as running customer experience tests, building out operational processes to drive efficiency, and creating tools to help prospective home buyers or real estate investors find out if a home is right for them. This role is uniquely positioned in a spot where you can directly see your work impact business results.

The Role:

As an effective team member, you will be a self-guided contributor. You will build significant, high quality, user-facing web interfaces by applying appropriate technologies and best practices. You will be a strong partner to internal teams such as product management, design, data, sales, and marketing. You will also help improve team process (which doesn’t mean adding more meetings) and collaborate to conquer large UI challenges.
