About Oper

At Oper, we believe that getting a mortgage should take just a few clicks, from the comfort of your own home. Our team is working with lenders and brokers to redesign their mortgage processes to make this dream a reality.

We offer lenders and brokers an out-of-the-box, white-labeled SaaS product that supports self-service mortgage applications, collaboration tools, digital signatures, integrations with relevant data sources, and more. Our early traction has attracted top industry investors, including Bessemer Venture Partners, Swiss Immo Lab, Verve Ventures, and Pitchdrive, and earned us recognition with top fintech accelerators: Barclays Techstars, Plug and Play, and F10 Fintech Accelerator.

We have offices in Zürich and Antwerp (Belgium). To support our current growth in Europe, we are looking for a Finance & Operations manager.
