Aalto offers a wonderfully different way to buy and sell homes, one where homeowners can sell quickly and quietly. Buyers benefit, too, discovering exclusive homes for sale not available anywhere else. It’s all supported by service-oriented agents, at every brokerage, who use Aalto to elevate the home-selling experience for everyone.

At Aalto, we believe that people deserve the freedom to live in the right place at the right time in a home that they love. Selling your home today is pretty terrible and together, we are building a solution that resonates with homeowners — with a 95 seller product-market fit score. 

We are looking for a Product Designer who is ready to design the future of residential real estate. Our Product Designers take a product, feature, or experience from ideation to production. This includes strategy, concept work, designing solutions, prototyping, bringing along cross-functional teams, overseeing implementation, and collaborating with other designers, researchers, product managers, and engineers.

Who you are:

    • Deeply curious
    • Obsessed with creating great experiences that begin with listening to customers
    • You sweat the small stuff, caring about every interaction
    • Have a portfolio of shipped work that you were directly responsible for designing
    • Experience designing mobile
    • Interested in and worked at early-stage companies
    • Deeply familiar and opinionated about Jobs to be Done
    • Secretly have always wanted to be an Imagineer
    • 3+ years of Product Design experience

What you'll do:

    • Partner with Engineering and Product teams to ship meaningful product with a fast cadence
    • Work across the Product Development spectrum: strategy, ideation, concept work, pixel-level details, prototyping, and front-end development and implementation
    • Sit in and sometimes lead customer and non-customer conversations
    • Advocate for new design-driven approaches and tools
    • Dabble in occasional print and ad design when the Community team needs help
    • Think deeply about the emotional state of the user at every step of our product journey
    • Say “no” a lot so that we can say yes to the right things
    • Interact with the founders, advisors, and (incredibly enthusiastic) end-users on a weekly basis, asking exceptional questions of each
    • Learn more about real estate than anyone you know
    • Have a ton of fun re-envisioning residential real estate from the ground up
