Full-time
Homebound’s mission is to improve the way homeowners build custom homes, especially in areas 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 using technology to streamline the process. The Homebound team includes in-house home advocates, designers, architects, insurance experts, legal counsel, construction managers and developers — all of whom came together to rebuild their communities and improve custom homebuilding as a whole.

We are already helping dozens of homeowners in California and Bahamas, and we are ready to scale to help hundreds more. Join us.
