Our Client

Over the past decade, millions of Americans have been forced to put their dreams of homeownership on hold. Home prices have outpaced wage growth while mortgage requirements continue to tighten. As a result, renters are missing out on a critical wealth-building opportunity: owning a home.

Our client is building an on-ramp to homeownership – one that's more affordable, more flexible, and an overall better fit for the modern American family – and it’s working.

They’re looking to hire a senior engineering manager to join their rapidly scaling company. In this role, you'll oversee one of the engineering domains (operations, channel, consumer, capital) managing and executing on the roadmap, hiring and scaling the team, and becoming a real-estate tech expert.

Some of the current products being developed include:

  1. Offers - streamlining the process to price and extend an offer on a home for a customer
  2. Inspections - automating (logistically) the collection, negotiation, and remediation of issues arising from a home inspection.
  3.  Closings - writing software to automate and manage the home closing process to ensure timely closes

The ideal candidate will have a strong technical background, coupled with multiple years of management experience. You have worked within strong product engineering organizations before, have hired and retained senior engineers, and enjoy building software for an operationally complex business. You will take over managing a team of senior engineers (4) and growing that team to 8 by the end of the year. You will also work with product and design to build software that drives operational efficiency within the business and results in a delightful consumer experience.

You will report to the co-founder/CTO.
