This role is available in any Terminal location in Canada (Kitchener, ON; Toronto, ON; Montreal, QC; Vancouver, BC). 

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 labour 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.

The challenge and opportunity for Frontend Engineers at Homebound is to build delightful experiences for a range of different types of users -- from homeowners to construction professionals.  We are just embarking on this journey so we are seeking individuals who, in addition to building experiences, also want to help establish best practices and create patterns for other Homebound engineers to ensure we deliver features quickly and at a high level of quality.

From React/Vue/Ember to PlainJS, from CSS to HTML, from REST to GraphQL, and from Component Libraries to Design Languages, you get excited about the challenge of going from “zero to one” and from “one to N” on all things Frontend.  You are equally comfortable writing detailed feature design documents, writing and deploying high-quality code and systems, building reusable frameworks, working closely with teams across the company, and identifying, hiring, and partnering with other talented folks.

Most importantly, you are excited to be an early, key influencer on Homebound’s technology cultural values and norms.

  • Write detailed design documents and integrate feedback into said documents

  • Write high-quality code and integrate code-review feedback into said code

  • Deploy systems that are resilient, robust, and monitored (“Cattle not Pets”)

  • Recruit and onboard additional people of quality

What You Bring - Experience

  • Excellence in a zero-to-one situation

  • Integrity around core values and beliefs

  • Experienced the strong psychological safety of a high output team

  • Built high-quality teams and systems

  • Experienced in all aspects of data infrastructure
