Sales & Business Development
United States
Posted on Friday, February 2, 2024

Blend is a diverse team of problem solvers who believe that the world’s financial resources should be more accessible. Our cloud banking platform is used by Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank, and over 330 other financial services firms to acquire more customers, increase productivity, and deliver end-to-end digital experiences. Our software enables our customers to process an average of more than $5 billion in loans per day, making it possible for consumers to reach their financial goals faster and lead better lives. Come do work that matters.

The Account Executive (AE) at Blend owns driving the growth of our customers across our platform of products and services. The AE is the leader of our incredible account team and works with customer executives to identify, position, and sell innovation into the world largest Banks, Credit Unions, and Independent Mortgage Banks (IMBs).

Blend started in 2012 focused on the Mortgage originations process (e.g., how to apply for and get a mortgage). We redefined the process for millions of consumers and hundreds of Banks, Credit Unions, and IMBs. We now process ~ 20% of all mortgages in the United States and are rapidly expanding into other origination products such as deposit accounts, auto lending, personal lending, and credit cards. Our customer base represents not only the largest but the most innovative financial institutions in the industry.

The role of the AE is central to our ongoing growth. As a consumption based revenue company, Blend grows by signing new logos, expanding within existing accounts, and growing utilization of previously sold products. At Blend, the AE can target all of these growth opportunities and balance both new business and existing account expansion to drive results.

Note: This is NOT a remote role, you must be able to commute to the San Francisco, CA office.

  • Expand your existing customers into additional products (we have an incredible suite of 7+ products to sell)
  • Renew existing contracts, expanding organically at each opportunity
  • Monitor deployments of products to ensure revenue and growth is unlocked quickly
  • Maintain deep executive relationships at all your accounts to ensure we can influence new opportunities and drive the maximum success from existing implementations
  • Work collaboratively with the account team including the Customer Success Manager, Solutions Engineer, Professional Services team, and Support team to quarterback any issues that present a risk to growth in your accounts
