    Lower home mortgage app stresses transparency and AI - Columbus Business First

    Dan Snyder says although he might be a terrible poker player, he is going all in on his latest venture. Snyder, an Akron-area native, spent 15 years in the home mortgage business with Wells Fargo and American Bank before founding mortgage company fast-growing Homeside Financial in 2014.

  • Congratulations to Team R2 led by Chad Beldon for claiming the prestigious title of Branch of the Year! They led the company in units and volume for 2018. The energy surrounding this group is unparalleled, and you can feel it on their sales floor!

Lower – Why Work For Us?

Be transparent.

We believe in being transparent, period. No jargon. No hidden fees. Just spelling things out exactly as they are. Ahh, refreshing.

We use our mortgage smarts and AI to guide you.

Be smart.

Our loan recommendation engine uses artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze thousands of closed loans and peer data points to ensure you get the best possible personal loan recommendation. It’s not magic, but it sure might feel like it.

We’re just like you, if you were a mortgage expert.

Be there—anytime.

We know that buying a home doesn’t stop at 5 o’clock because we’ve been there. So let’s support our borrowers—at any time, day or night—available by text, call or email. Put simply, we'll be there.

No rocketry. Just the important stuff—like lower rates.

Backed by a top 100 lender.

Yup. We're backed by Homeside, an Inc. 5000 fastest growing company, top 100 lender in the nation, and ranked as one of Glassdoor's best places to work.

200 employees, one central location.

Our real, live Lower HQ is located in Columbus, Ohio. If you get a text, call or email from us, that’s where we are. By keeping operations central, we keep costs and rates down, too!

    I have been working at Lower full-time (More than a year)


    Leadership truly wants you to be successful, while not asking you to change who you are to fit a certain mold.

    Expansive career growth potential, It's exciting to come to work everyday knowing that you are part of a company that isn't focused just on the short term but mainly on the long term success of not only the company but it's employees.

    Lower feels like a big family as the company continues to grow and add top talent the feeling of family hasn't left.


    Not suitable for those who don't embrace change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting employees first, as the company grows.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lower.


    Short process, you meet with 3-5 people on the team. I felt it was a little extensive for the type of position they are hiring for. I feel a job shadow should be done on the first interview.
