The Job

This is perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be the founding engineer on a greenfield project to build and scale an enterprise-grade software platform that will truly change the lives of your fellow humans.

You will be one of the first engineering hires, and will immediately be leading efforts to build a world-class software platform that will enable us to build the most efficient and delightful home building experience. Initially, you will spend time to ensuring our existing clients and internal team are happy using off the shelf solutions as we build our own infrastructure.

Our platform will be web and mobile based and will be our client's constant companion throughout the year-long process of building a home. The technology platform will allow us to scale to be the biggest and best homebuilder in the U.S. We have big plans for the future…

You will have an opportunity to determine Open Source architecture, infrastructure, tech stack, team makeup and of course, ensuring that the tech team stays true to our core mission and values.

You are both a strong individual contributor and leader, able to assume responsibility for Homebound's overall Software Development Lifecycle and software evolution.

A major plus would be experience and interest in home building or construction.
