Full Stack Engineer - Homebound

Homebound’s mission is to create a better way to build a home leveraging technology, and we’re already delivering on that mission in places that need it the most: communities impacted by devastating wildfires.

With a better labor model, a more efficient building process, and a delightful homeowner experience, Homebound will transform the single-family home market, and rebuild communities along the way.

We are already helping dozens of homeowners in Sonoma and Ventura Counties, and with backing from Thrive Capital, Khosla Ventures and Google Ventures, we are ready to scale to help hundreds more. Join us.

We are looking for a talented full-stack engineer who is excited about being a key contributor and leader in our fast growing company.

This person will be both a strong individual contributor and leader, able to assume responsibility for Homebound’s overall technical architecture and development process. This person will participate in the entire development lifecycle, help to shape and refine requirements, own the design for major components, and write the code to implement important new capabilities. This person will also help set the engineering strategy and shape the team culture. A major plus would be experience with and interest in home building or construction.

  • Build Homebound’s MVP consumer product that enables a homeowner to manage the phases of the home building process (schedule, budget, design choices, messaging)

  • Many other projects based on your skills and interests!

  • Experience playing a lead role in architecting/designing the service-tier and database layers for a new application

What You Have - Skill
