Lenda: Home Financing made easy. 

As an underwriter at Lenda, you’ll be an integral part of us owning the entire mortgage lending eco-system. This means we’ll be able to continue delivering on the promise of providing best-in-class customer service. You’ll regularly engage with our technology development team to build smarter mortgage technology for our proprietary loan origination system (LOS), while also working closely with the Operations & Sales team to continue refining and improving our internal processes. Last but definitely not least, you’ll be a living example of Lenda’s core values of being professional, being awesome, and being yourself.


(And to set us all up for success, we define remote as: the ability to work from home 85% of the time after you go through our on-boarding. On-boarding will be no less than 4 weeks and no greater than 12 weeks. You will help determine the duration by how quickly you integrate with the team and learn the Lenda-way. Thereafter we would love to see you at the office for major events (announcements and to celebrate milestones) and at least once or twice (1-2 times) every 2 weeks.
