At Blend, we’re dedicated to improving lending. We’re an enterprise technology company, but our product affects the most important purchase most people will make in their lifetime—their home. For homebuyers, our product means a clear, guided path to a new home. For lenders, it means modern, easy-to-use tools that let employees spend their time helping customers, rather than on repetitive, manual tasks. By aligning and modernizing this archaic industry, we believe everybody wins.

We need someone who’s driven to solve hard problems—the harder the better. We’re motivated by the fact that our product won’t just affect the lives of a few people in the Bay Area—it affects people all over America, not to mention a foundational part of the U.S. economy. Founded in 2012 by former Palantir leaders, we’re currently backed by Founders Fund, Andreessen Horowitz and other prominent investors.

As a Quality Assurance Analyst you will work with Engineering and Product to grow, maintain, and own the test suite for Blend's products. You will be embedded with different teams in Engineering to improve our test coverage and ensure best practices are being followed to ensure reliable and fast testing. You will also collaborate closely with QA Automation engineers to determine automation priorities and opportunities.
