Better is hiring an

Ops Associate

New York, United States

A Better Company

Better is revolutionizing the $12 Trillion mortgage industry. Americans pay more money for housing than they do for almost all other things combined --- 33% of personal consumption expenditure. Yet somehow the mortgage process still takes 49 days, costs over $5,000 in administrative fees, and requires over 225 pages of paper and endless phone calls with commissioned loan brokers. We think this is insane - so we’re fixing it.

First, we bought an existing mortgage bank and brought on the best engineers from companies like Spotify and Google. Now, we’re leveraging advances in data science, machine learning and ux design to make mortgages simple, transparent, and delightful. We currently give consumers rates in 3 seconds and approvals in 30 seconds, not days. Last month alone, we funded over $60 Million in mortgages. This coming year we will do over $1 Billion - and we’re just getting started.

Help make financing a home better for all Americans.

You’ll play an essential role in conducting financial analysis of borrower applicants, coordinating key milestones, and guiding consumers through all aspects of the mortgage application life cycle.

By the end of your first year, you will be a master of credit analytics, scenario analysis, and customer delight.

This position will require sophisticated interaction with both the software that we’re building and the clients we’re serving. The ideal candidate will be a highly organized communicator capable of delivering best-in-class service while maintaining composure in a fast-paced environment.
