About Better.com:

  • Grew our geographic coverage to 36 states, up from 15 states from a year ago
  • And we’re not slowing down. We continue to outpace the rest of the industry at every turn.

  • Smarts: book and street. We have to use all the tools at our disposal to build Better.
  • Empathy and Compassion. You understand that people's biggest dreams are in your hands.
  • Communication. Can you ask for help or put your hand up when you don’t understand?
  • Building. Doing. Making. Yes, we have to do a lot of thinking and talking to figure this stuff out, but you can’t wait to leave the conversation and build it.
