About Brace

Brace is built on the idea that there must be a more transparent and efficient way to service borrowers in times of need and hardship. We provide technology solutions to drive innovation in the mortgage servicing industry.

Job Description

Who We Are

Brace is a team of passionate technologists, mortgage servicing experts, and entrepreneurs who are rethinking the mortgage service experience by putting the customer’s experience first.

We are bi-coastal with the customer and business operations located in LA and the engineering team in NYC.

While we are fundamentally a technology company focused on financial services, we are and will always be a start-up at heart and will never lose the entrepreneurial spirit that entails. The human element of what we’re doing here is never lost on any one of us, regardless of role, and the impact we can have to help people is at the core of our belief system.

One of the core tenants to Brace’s values is ensuring we build this company on a foundation of inclusiveness and diversity.  We truly are an Equal Opportunity Employer and evaluate applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, orientation, national origin, age, disability, genetics or any other basis - our focus is on experience and the candidate’s drive to grow with us and absolutely nothing else.

What We’re Doing

Our first product to market is focused on the highly complex delinquency space and figuring out how we can provide a frictionless experience for both the borrowers having trouble paying their mortgage and the servicers managing the process. We are taking a truly holistic approach by building a platform that enables mortgage servicers to react promptly to delinquency events and quickly determine the best available outcome for all participants involved.  What separates us from the rest is that we are doing this with a beautiful, easy-to-use omnichannel user experience that sits on top of a host of best-in-breed technologies.

Where We’re Going

At the risk of sounding cliché, we truly are disruptors. We aim to change what has become the status quo in an industry that has not seen innovation in over 40 years. 

Our goal is to build a comprehensive suite of tools that make people’s lives easier with a lean team of folks all striving to succeed.
