Sales Associate (Entry)
We’re one of the fastest-growing homeownership companies in America. Why? Because we’re making homeownership simpler, faster – and most importantly, more accessible for all Americans.
By combining smarter technology with a desire to not just change one piece of the journey but the entire makeup of what it’s like to buy and own a home in this country, we’re building things that don’t exist yet.
Better.com by the numbers:
• We fund $600 million in home loans per month
• Nearly $5 billion in loans funded since our inception in 2016
• 2 years running, we’re one of Crain’s “Best Places to work”
• We’re #11 on Fortune’s Best Places to Work in NYC
• And #964 on Inc.’s 2019 “5000 Fastest-Growing Companies”
• We’ve secured over $254 million from our investors to date
We continue to outpace the industry at every turn. We’ve recently joined forces in partnership with Ally Bank. Plus, our backers have helped build some of the most transformative tech and finance companies in history. Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, IA Ventures, American Express, Citigroup, Activant Capital, and others have all invested in our vision of redefining the entire homebuying journey.
As a part of our fast-growing team, you’ll continually innovate and iterate on how to bring best-in-class service to our customers. You’ll be on the front lines generating revenue by establishing qualified customers to send on their way to getting a “Better” mortgage. Unique to this role at Better is that you never cold call or prospect. Our technology generates warm leads (potential customers) that you are responsible for engaging and qualifying to move on in the mortgage process.
Your work will expose you to our full company: including our product, engineering, and marketing orgs. You will have the opportunity to share customer insight, improve Better’s core technology and build and grow your own career within Better.
Note: This role may require some weekend availability.
Responsibilities will include:
• Getting on the phone and interacting with interested prospective customers
• Working with our sales teams to build a pipeline of customers
• Educating customers on what it takes to buy a home and partnering with them to make it happen
• Taking a consultative approach in helping customers overcome issues and achieve their goals
• Providing the best customer experience possible, which in turn will help you convert potential customers to Better customers

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 helping people get into and stay in the home of their dreams then this 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.
