Interior Designer/Project Manager- Fort Myers, Florida
- Expired: March 26, 2023. Applications are no longer accepted.
Location: Fort Myers, Florida- Field
Freemodel is seeking entrepreneurial and creative self-starters who want to build their own businesses as home renovation experts, and be a part of building an early-stage Silicon Valley startup.
Freemodel helps homeowners maximize the sale price of their homes by providing a turnkey pre-sales renovation service. Freemodel designs, manages and pays for remodels with no upfront costs. Homeowners pay out of escrow when their homes sell.
The Interior Designer/Project Manager role is critical to Freemodel's service. As an independent contractor, you will be paid per project, and will be responsible for core project scoping, material selection, contractor bidding, project management, and customer communications.
You will work closely with Freemodel's founding team and other Interior Designer/Project Manager to not only execute on projects and ensure every homeowner is a happy customer, but also drive key role definition and software direction.
The Interior Designer/Project Manager role is extremely autonomous. You will make your own hours and be free to take on as many projects as you wish.
The ideal Interior Designer/Project Manager has previous residential interior design experience and has rolled up their sleeves to manage an entire project - interfacing with clients, delivering impeccable designs within the established budget, developing timelines, and coordinating with contractors to meet deadlines. This person knows a thing or two about the hustle of running their own business.
While being local to the projects is critical to the Interior Designer/Project Manager role's effectiveness, it is also important that you are comfortable with technology. We use various forms of software and hardware to capture project information and scope, submit detailed bids, track budget, and communicate with stakeholders.
As a Interior Designer/Project Manager, you will:
- Visit properties with the real estate agents and sellers to discuss the needed renovations
- Identify valuable repairs and improvements, in consultation with the agent and homeowner, to maximize the sale price of the home
- Provide guidance on interior design, and select & purchase finish materials
- Draft a detailed scope of work and manage project budget
- Create a detailed schedule and ensure the project is delivered on time
- Work with subs to get bids, inspect work and approve payments
- Ensure subs have all information and materials needed to accomplish their tasks
- Visit the job site regularly, take photos of work in progress and provide regular updates to the homeowners and agent
- Be attentive to input from the agent and homeowners and strive to achieve extremely high client satisfaction
- Develop working relationships with a wide range of subcontractors in your area
- Develop trusted relationships with agents that could lead to more projects over time
The ideal candidate will be highly detail-oriented and have experience in home renovation. The candidate should enjoy working with people and be comfortable quickly building a rapport with clients and vendors. Previous interior design experience is very helpful, but not required.
- Strong management skills
- Excellent ability to multitask
- Strong interpersonal skills
- Polished, client-oriented communication
- Experience working effectively both independently and within a team
- Ability to meet deadlines
- Flexibility in schedule and style
- Creative mindset
- Deep problem solving skills
- Proficient in productivity software
This is an entrepreneurial contract position where you will be paid on a per-project basis, with no limit on what you can earn. Interior Designer/Project Managers can make well into six figures in a full year with a full project load.
