At Better, we're making getting a mortgage fast, simple, and delightful. Recognized as the technology leader in mortgage lending, Better provides borrowers a superior home financing experience to any previously possible.

From our offices in Downtown NYC, we're revolutionizing a $12 trillion industry; building the future of real estate and consumer credit. Our team combines leading software engineers from companies like Spotify and Google with a mortgage bank that has three generations of experience. Together we're building groundbreaking technology driven by user-centric design principles, and making the mortgage experience what it should be - an exciting and delightful part of the biggest transaction in most Americans' lives.

A Better Opportunity

As a Product Manager at Better, you'll be responsible for building products that will ultimately reduce the cost of homeownership in America. Day-to-day, you will find yourself in a wide variety of roles — ranging from a visionary, rearchitecting the needlessly complex mortgage process; to a data analyst, helping make a decision on what will make the most impact; to a problem solver, working together with top engineers and mortgage experts to resolve technical, operational, and marketing challenges.

Our company is still small, and you will be an integral part of defining how we solve our users' biggest problems: and we have lots of different types of users with their own fascinating needs — whether first-time homebuyers, seasoned financial whizzes seeking to refinance, internal bank operations, or the investors that purchase loans on our platforms. Your goal will be to build creative solutions to problems that don't just live in silos but solve the needs of everyone involved. And you won't be stuck in endless planning and prioritization meetings: the engineering and production teams sit together, and we deploy on a continuous basis, so you'll have a really tight feedback loop to constantly be improving the user experience.

In addition to dozens of fun problems to solve, we offer highly competitive compensation and full benefits, as well as meaningful equity.

Attributes we value:

  • You have experience bringing large, complex projects all the way from idea, to implementation, through to ongoing improvement.
  • You have a solid technical proficiency and are a trusted partner of engineers. Ideally you write code yourself, but communicating about technical topics should be your forte.
  • You are a voracious and quick learner and can quickly get up to speed on any topic (most of us didn't know a thing about mortgages before we started).
  • You are clear in your specifications: you provide motivation for what to build, and can put together process flows, prototypes, sketches, and other artifacts to share your ideas thoroughly and effectively.
  • You are adept at asking the right questions of data and finding answers yourself to help guide you in making product decisions.
  • You are driven above all to improve the user experience — whether those users are within the company or end users — by listening to user feedback, performing research, and prioritizing according to long-term goals.
  • You have excellent communication skills and can partner with coworkers in marketing, operations, user experience, legal, and business roles.
  • Your interests and knowledge are broad. Some of the best ideas come from the intersection of disciplines, so side projects and explorations are a big plus!

  • Drive innovation, definition, deliverables planning (roadmap) and design of entirely new Glamsquad products and product features to deliver against company goals. Requires challenging all members of cross-functional team (engineering, marketing, etc.) to think boldly and creatively and then to funnel that energy into concrete products and execution plans.
  • Develop a strategic understanding of target markets and evolving trends. This includes working cross-functionally to drive market research programs and develop business cases to support new business opportunities.
