Full-time
Homebound’s mission is to create a better way to build homes 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 over 150 homeowners in Sonoma and Ventura Counties, and with backing from Thrive Capital, Forerunner, Khosla Ventures, Google Ventures, and Fifth Wall, we are ready to scale to help hundreds more. Join us.

Role Overview
We believe that building a custom home should feel simple, transparent, and human, which is a dramatic departure from the traditional experience today. In order to achieve our vision, we need to thoughtfully design every customer touchpoint and imbue it with an uncompromising interpretation of our brand values. Our challenge is to take what feels impossibly complex, and make it feel possible. It’s to empower homeowners with the critical context they need to make consequential decisions for their future, and to transform triggers of stress and fear into opportunities to earn trust and show that we have our homeowners’ backs every step of the way.
