Digital lender Beeline goes on a hiring spree

Open positions include underwriters, tech developers, loan guides and loan guide assistants

Digital lender Beeline plans to hire over 300 new employees total by September 2021 – with over 100 new positions opening in Charlotte, North Carolina and Providence, Rhode Island, the company said Monday.

After its initial launch by industry veterans Nick Liuzza, Peter Gonzalez, Jess Kennedy, Greg Ellis and Jay Stockwell in May with $7.6 million in funding, the once 30-person company said it is looking to expand beyond its Northeastern home base.

According to Beeline, the company plans to unveil a new office in Charlotte in the fall of 2020 – followed by a new branch on the West Coast towards the end of the year.

The team aims to hire over 100 “loan guides,” 10 developers/data scientists, more than 50 post-approval underwriters, and 20-plus “loan guide assistants” across current markets — with a current focus on its Charlotte and Providence locations. 

The company has developed an alternative to what is traditionally know as a loan officer role.

“Beeline’s personal “Loan Guides” are essential team-members that are assigned to a customer from the start of their application process all the way to the closing of their home/refi to be their 24/7 point of contact for questions and assistance. You also don’t need to be an expert in real estate — Beeline will show you the ropes,” Beeline said. “We can make fancy technology and AI etc (which we do) but Loan Guides must embody our tone and values — informal, approachable, inclusive, yet knowledgeable, responsive and playful.”

For those who have not previously worked as a loan officer, Beeline offers a precursor role known as a loan guide assistant which the company says will give prospective employees the opportunity to grow into the loan guide role.

According to Beeline, applicants can have little-to-no mortgage experience.
