Homebound’s mission is to create a better way to build homes, leveraging technology to make custom homebuilding simpler and more transparent. We’re delivering on that promise in places that have been impacted by natural disasters, and now we’re expanding to serve international customers as they build their perfect home.

Our proprietary technology aggregates expertise, labor, and materials so our customers get the most efficient experience possible. The first of its kind, this powerful collaborative tool empowers designers, customers and construction teams throughout the homebuilding process.

The Homebound team includes top software engineers, developers, designers,architects, industry experts, and legal counsel — all of whom have come together to move the homebuilding business into the 21st century

Join us!

Role Overview:

Homebound’s design organization is growing and we’re looking for a senior product designer to join our team. Product design is the heart and soul of Homebound and one of our true differentiators. Our designers partner tightly with our customer experience, product, engineering, architecture and construction professionals to explore, design, prototype, test and iterate on solutions to deliver a customer-first construction experience.

The design team has a strong role in our product discovery processes. Design is an equal partner to engineering and product and plays an important role in collectively making critical strategic decisions. This role will be instrumental in defining first version products and working through multiple iterations for the project management platform that powers our home building. This is an environment where we’re making big bets, innovation is encouraged, and we embrace failure and the persistence to continue to iterate to solve core problems.

Responsibilities:

  • Partner with our product managers, procurement, operations and construction teams to map out deep process flows; execute and user test internal tool ideas
  • Improve our platform’s overall usability and adoption metrics via improved architecture and component design
  • Lead multiple design projects across different product development lifecycles
  • Synthesize research into actionable insights and product implications; make data informed design decisions
  • Prepare and present design work with clearly defined goals to multiple stakeholders

What You Have Done In Your Career:

  • 6+ years of experience designing, building, and growing high-quality products
  • Portfolio of work that embodies deep system thinking and enterprise / business workflow software
  • Thrived in a fast-paced environment with ambiguity and changing needs
  • Demonstrated ability to plan, manage, and drive projects from beginning to end
  • Enjoy teaching and/or mentoring other designers and teammates to learn and grow

Who You Are:

  • Are an expert in deep process flows that resulted in simplified, non-sexy, internal tools
  • Low ego and an eagerness to give and receive constructive feedback in a transparent work environment
  • Growth-mindset with a healthy dose of skepticism
  • Strong written and verbal communicator who errs on the side of over communication
  • Strong sense of responsibility with a bias towards action
  • Comfortable self-directing and prioritizing your own work
  • Strong communication, facilitation and presentation skills
  • Experience with internal tools, table design, design systems and Figma

We are focused on building a diverse and inclusive workforce. If you’re excited about this role, but do not meet 100% of the qualifications listed above, we encourage you to apply.
