Apply for this job

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 Greylock, Founders Fund, Andreessen Horowitz and other prominent investors.
 
As a Data & Analytics Product Manager, you will lead the vision, strategy, and roadmap for Blend’s data infrastructure, reporting, and tools that empower every Blend employee and our customers to leverage data and measure success of their respective domain. You will be the lead advocate for the importance of data and foster a data-driven culture. You will be responsible for having a deep understanding of the key business drivers to Blend’s success and ensuring other Product Managers have the appropriate resources and tools to measure the impact of new feature launches and ongoing product health metrics. You will interface closely with Blend’s customers to understand their business needs and develop a roadmap to support external tools and reporting that gives them a deep level of understanding about their business.
