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 is reimagining the mortgage process from the ground up based on technology as a simple, fast, transparent marketplace for borrowers and investors. We’re chasing the goal of being the best way to get a mortgage and the best way to invest in them.

LendingHome is taking on a huge problem and growing rapidly towards becoming the next great financial services brand powered by the most advanced mortgage platform in the world.

 

The Team

The objective of the closing department is to efficiently bring a loan transaction to closure by accurately drawing documents both to the requirements of our investors and to the request of our borrower client. They must also protect the company integrity through thoughtful review of all closing conditions and requirements involving, but not limited to accurate reconciliation of fund disbursement, on point communication to all settlement agents, and timely coordination of 3rd party documents (hazard insurance, flood insurance, and title commitments).

 

The Role

The Funding Specialist is responsible for guiding our loans after the loan closing documents have been prepared through the funding and closing of the loan. Along the way, you will foster relationships with our closing agents, brokers and borrowers, as well as internal team members as you work with them to make the process of borrowing through LendingHome smooth and simple.

 

Responsibilities

  • Work with the loan origination team, closing agents and borrowers to ensure a quick, accurate and pleasant closing experience.

    • Reviewing signed closing documents to ensure all documents are present and have been signed properly and ensure all conditions have been met
    • Requesting wire to be sent
    • Following up for any post closing documents
  • Speak up and suggest improvements wherever you see an opportunity.
  • Adhere to and comply with all applicable federal and state laws and company policies.
  • Perform other duties and responsibilities as required or as assigned by the supervisor.
  • Propose improvement to our closing process, to make it as efficient and pleasant as possible.

 

Qualifications

  • You have an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree, or
  • 3-5 years experience in document drawing and/or funding; escrow officer or insurance agent experience a plus.
  • You have a track record as a self-starter, with excellent time management skills, and a strong desire to learn.
  • You have the ability to define problems, collect data, establish facts and draw valid conclusions.
  • You have excellent written and oral communication skills.

  • You are a team player who likes to work hard and play hard.
  • You have excellent technical skills, including Microsoft Word & Excel, Google Docs & Sheets, Adobe Acrobat; and you love learning new technology!
  • If you have experience in the residential or business purpose mortgage space (post closing or loan operations), that’s excellent. If not, we have a training program designed to build skills you’ll use throughout your career and life.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
