About Better:

We’re one of the fastest growing homeownership companies in America. Why? Because we’re building a better way to get home and our customers love it. By combining the technology people expect with a seamless customer service experience, we’re making homeownership so simple it feels magical.

In 2018 alone, we’ve helped over 10,000 families get home, saving them on average $3,500 in upfront fees and days of stress-filled time.

Our backers have helped build some of most transformative tech and finance companies in history. Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, IA Ventures, Ally Bank and others have invested over $85MM in Better and our vision of making homeownership magical.

A Better opportunity:

Better is looking for an analytically minded research enthusiast to work alongside our Chief Economist and Head of Credit Risk. The Research Analyst will conduct experiments and synthesize results; monitor ROI by loan type, borrower characteristics, and other metrics; and assist with other special strategic projects. As the company continues to grow, this individual will be key in driving our ability to create win-wins for Better and our borrowers.

About You:

  • You have an undergraduate degree in computer science, statistics, engineering/sciences, economics or psychology (with lab experience); Master’s degree preferred, but not required.
  • You have 0-3 years experience in a heavily analytical environment - either professionally or in a high calibre academic setting.
  • You have SQL experience (or the interest and ability to learn it quickly)
  • You are naturally curious, with a particular interest in applying your skills to solving economics or behavioural/psychology problems

Things we value:

  • Curiosity. Why? How? Repeat.
  • Nerdiness. Financial news and trends are fascinating. Seriously.   
  • Relentlessness. No one here gives up. We try. We fail. We try again.
  • Passion. If you don’t get excited about homeownership, mortgages, and real estate, it simply won’t work.
  • Smarts: book and street. We have to use all the tools at our disposal to build Better.
  • Empathy and Compassion. You understand that people's biggest dreams are in your hands.
  • Communication. Can you ask for help or put your hand up when you don’t understand?
  • Building. Doing. Making. Yes, we have to do a lot of thinking and talking to figure this stuff out, but you can’t wait to leave the conversation and build it.
