STEM Lending, a privately held online mortgage broker with a history of operations in Philadelphia, PA, is looking to hire an experienced Mortgage Loan Officer to expand our brand throughout the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. To apply, email your résumé to: email@example.com
At STEM Lending, we’re building a new platform for today’s mortgage borrower that breaks down the barriers for customers who previously were unable to competitively comparison shop their mortgage loan options.
Our team combines technology experts from GE Capital and Citigroup’s tech division, with financial talent from Goldman Sachs, Tower Research and other New York FinTech startups. Having this kind of diversified talent under one roof has allowed us to tackle some of the biggest customer pain-points in the mortgage industry.
As we simplify and transform the mortgage process for first-time homebuyers, we’ve been guided by three main principles:
1) In 2018, everyone comparison shops for everything, except their mortgage. CFPB study shows 77% of all mortgage seekers in 2016 got a quote from only one lender. The lack of comparison shopping costed those home buyers many thousands of dollars over the life of the loan.
2) The mortgage application process is moving from offline to online. 80% of mortgages were issued offline, but that % is dramatically changing and will likely reverse in the next 5 years.
3) If it’s possible to streamline the mortgage application and reduce the paperwork & frustration from a 2-month process to a 2-week process – we owe it to ourselves & our customers to do just that.
If this sounds like the right place for you to accelerate your career in the mortgage industry, send us your résumé today.
