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.

The App Platform Team builds a framework that provides the backbone of the microservices architecture at Blend. Our mission is to provide a scalable system that enables product teams to build new features with speed and quality.
The app platform handles the interaction between the UI, the platform, and the microservices that host the business logic in our application. It contains several large scale systems controllers: a state machine that manages transitions between different forms in which the user to fill out information to complete an application, a data request dispatcher that manages data setter and getter requests between different services, a pub-sub system to enable services to react to data changes in other services, a rules engine to dynamically add and remove workflows based on data updates, and a registry of components, workflows, and data fields present in these services.
