  • Develop initiatives in collaboration with product, marketing, sales, and operations teams to drive a superior customer experience that leads to advocacy (i.e. referrals)
  • Understand drivers of churn once the customer has locked in a rate and drive initiatives that reduce addressable churn
  • Audit existing processes to ensure they are working properly as our business evolves

About You:

  • You have at least 2 years of managerial experience and 5-7 years working in marketing / customer service operations
  • You’re maniacal about improving the customer experience
  • You’re a creative thinker that can brainstorm ways to continuously surprise and delight our customers
  • You’re analytically minded and can drive insights from data
  • You have a bias for action and will immediately drive impact
  • You have excellent communication and relationship-building skills to drive change

Things we value:

  • Curiosity. Why? How? Repeat.
  • Nerdiness. Financial news and trends are fascinating. Seriously.
  • Relentlessness. No one here gives up. We try. We fail. We try again.
  • Passion. If you don’t get excited about homeownership, mortgages, and real estate, it simply won’t work.
  • Smarts: book and street. We have to use all the tools at our disposal to build Better.
  • Empathy and Compassion. You understand that people's biggest dreams are in your hands.
  • Communication. Can you ask for help or put your hand up when you don’t understand?
  • Building. Doing. Making. Yes, we have to do a lot of thinking and talking to figure this stuff out, but you can’t wait to leave the conversation and build it.

The Better mission is rooted in values that drive us.

  • We do what’s in the best interest of the consumer, not ourselves
  • We have growth mindsets, not fixed ones
  • We believe that success lies in execution, not credentials
  • We act like owners, not just employees
  • We work to find answers on our own, not wait for them to be given to us
  • We optimize for mission, not ego

Our mission speaks for itself—we continue to outpace the industry at every turn. We’ve recently joined forces in partnership with Ally Bank, and our backers have helped build some of the most transformative tech and finance companies in history. Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Citigroup, Activant Capital, Ally Bank, and others have invested in our vision for what homeownership can be.
