Blend helps lenders maximize their digital agility. Our digital lending platform is used by Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank, and other leading financial institutions to increase customer acquisition, improve productivity, and accelerate the delivery of any banking product across every channel. Through our software, we enable our customers to process an average of more than $5 billion in loans per day, helping consumers get into homes and gain access to the capital they need to lead better lives.
As an engineer on the Lender Foundation team at Blend, you’ll work on the complex interfaces that our customers use to do their jobs every day, and through which all of Blend’s business passes. This is a full-stack team that owns the lender-facing experience top-to-bottom -- while the work tends to be UI-heavy, many features include backend components as well. We collaborate closely with the design and product teams to ideate, build, and iterate on the best possible experience for the lender.
- We write frontend features with React in ES6/Typescript. We find that typechecking helps us catch errors earlier, test better, and ultimately ship quicker and with higher quality. Because our app is white-labeled (think dynamic styling), we use Aphrodite (CSS-in-JS) for all of our styling.
- Our team also builds and owns its own deployment infrastructure and application serving pipeline, so we can ship whenever we need to and have full control over making the delivery pipeline as quick and seamless as possible.
- On the backend, we write Node / Express in ES6/Typescript.
