About the Company

Valon’s mission is to empower every homeowner. We believe the journey of home ownership starts when you get your keys, but lasts far beyond. We’re creating a world where home ownership comes with ease, security, and financial know-how. Our growing team of engineers, operators, product enthusiasts, and experienced servicing professionals are leveraging technology to fundamentally improve the homeownership experience. Through mortgage servicing—the process of paying off one’s mortgage—Valon is taking the first step in transforming the industry one homeowner, and lender, at a time.

Servicing Transfers at Valon

At Valon, the journey of every loan begins with a servicing transfer. The Servicing Transfers department owns operational processes related to onboarding and off-boarding loans to and from Valon’s platform. We ensure Valon has the necessary data, documents, and funds to service the loan and that all relevant service providers and stakeholders are notified in a timely manner. In addition to Valon team members, we work closely with third-party partners to support our line of work.

The right candidate can roll up their sleeves and operate at all levels of operations as needed by the business. We require a strong operator who can understand the bigger picture, forge their own path without clear guidance, tackle complex problems, own processes end-to-end, and work cross-functionally.

  • Drive process efficiencies and improvements across servicing transfer operations.

Ideal Background
