Our company is made up of driven, passionate people who bring their unique backgrounds and perspectives to everything we do.

We see the value in each person’s perspective, and recognize their talents, regardless of what the market says. We believe it’s important to nurture a company culture that encourages curiosity and passion—from employee resource groups and learning opportunities to team outings and community outreach. 

The Role

We're looking for an ACD, Copywriting with experience across brand and marketing. In this role, you’ll help oversee our longform content across our owned channels and blog. You’ll also manage a team of copywriters from initial project planning to final build.

You’ll sit in our Design team and work closely with our partners in Marketing, shaping our company’s creative vision and building our brand across multiple channels. You’ll also:

  • Drive and own day-to-day creative direction and oversight for a team of copywriters, with support from a Creative Director
  • Ensure content is delivered on brand and on time, with a lens of brand and marketing
  • Oversee the concepting, presentation, and selling through of creative presentations, which tie together multiple channels
  • Act as a partner to stakeholders and ensure marketing goals are achieved
  • Be willing to roll up your sleeves and see through the execution of creative ideas from concept through tactical production tasks, ensuring the highest level of quality and adherence to brand voice
  • Have a self-starting, entrepreneurial spirit
  • Explain and defend conceptual and directional choices

About you

  • 5+ years of experience a startup, ad agency, or media company
  • 2+ years of experience managing other people
  • Direct and to the point, yet diplomatic and fair
  • Ability to give and take feedback with a good attitude
  • Strong point of view with the written and verbal communication skills to back it up
  • Appetite for problem solving and a love for fast-paced environments
  • Ability to create and direct high quality campaigns
  • Experience managing and/or leading various creative campaigns in parallel
  • Ability to lead and influence without being the direct manager of all team members
  • A strong understanding of how creativity can achieve business objectives while still meeting brand standards for communication quality

The Better mission is rooted in values that drive us.

  • We do what’s in the best interest of the consumer, not ourselves
  • We have growth mindsets, not fixed ones
  • We believe that success lies in execution, not credentials
  • We act like owners, not just employees
  • We work to find answers on our own, not wait for them to be given to us 
  • We optimize for mission, not ego

Our mission speaks for itself—we continue to outpace the industry at every turn. We’ve joined forces in partnership with Ally Bank, and our backers have helped build some of the most transformative tech and finance companies in history. Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Citigroup, Activant Capital, Ally Bank, and others have invested in our vision for what homeownership can be.

An Insider's view of Better

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

The work life balance here at better is great! My schedule is always consistent and my management team is very flexible when time off is needed. Having unlimited paid time off is very helpful when you need a personal day, time off for a holiday or just need some time for vacation.

Jessica Mendez

Processing Expert

What does your typical day look like?

As a Loan Consultant Associate, I communicate with borrowers daily to guide them through the biggest transaction of their lives- their mortgage transaction! This includes going over their application, rate options, and ensuring they’re familiar with the Better process. I ensure that all my borrowers feel taken care of and at ease with the process.

Mak Bonakdar

Loan Consultant Associate

What makes someone successful on your team?

Borrower-Centric Mindset! Closers need to be able to connect with the borrowers and help guide them through the conclusion of this transaction which for most people is one of the largest transactions of their lives.
Creative Problem Solvers- Closers need to think outside the box to solve issues and get the file closed.

Derek Steel-Waas

Closing Expert Manager

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office vibe is really warm and inviting. We have lunch together, do happy hours in the office, and celebrate birthdays!
Our open office space allows for a lot of interdepartmental collaboration and everyone is always willing to help each other out. I feel lucky to say that I can truly call my coworkers my work family!
