    Buying a home should be an enjoyable experience. At Approved, we’re driven to do things a little differently, and we’re bringing the same sort of love we brought to Electronic Arts, Apple, and Redfin to the mortgage lending space. There’s no reason modern mortgage standards have to be archaic, slow, and frustrating for buyers and lenders alike. Buying a home is often the most important personal and financial milestone in a person’s life, and we feel strongly that the state of the art isn’t good enough for today's homebuyers.

    What We Do

    We’re building a platform for lenders that allow them to streamline their loan app, document collection, and approval process from 1-2 weeks to a few minutes. Instead of chasing down paper, we allow borrowers to automatically collect supporting documents using their online banking credentials. We generate a dynamic loan app using the data we see, and we integrate easily with the tools that lenders and their teams are already using. Buyers are saved from a tedious process, and lenders save a lot of time and money.

    Who We’re Looking For

    We’re looking for someone to work closely alongside the CEO and CTO (both ex-Redfin) in defining and implementing core features for home buyers buyers and lenders as we drive to our official production launch. As an early employee, we’ll give you the autonomy and support you need to dream big, and you’ll make a big impact on the trajectory of the company. You’ll get far more responsibility than at a big company, but we value work / life balance, staying healthy, and enjoying life.
