The product design team is responsible for understanding the needs of our users and defining and delivering end-to-end product design.

    • Networking and Community features as powerful as Reddit or LinkedIn
    • Educational/News features as powerful as the WSJ or NYT applications
    • Market and Deal Finding Capabilities as powerful as Redfin, Zillow, or Realtor.com
    • Portfolio Analysis, Property Management, and Wealth Management capabilities.

Critical Competencies

  • B2C Mobile-First Design Experience – The ideal candidate will have spent years or decades designing freemium membership experiences, and come from a background in RE Tech, FinTech, mobile gaming, or investing applications. They will bring an instinctive approach to designing onboarding flows that immediately move users to their “aha” moment that creates a high likelihood of immersion with the app. 
  • Analytics and Engagement: The ideal candidate will be able to flip back and forth with their Design and Product Management “hats” on, and will be continuously studying the data and actual usage patterns of the app to inform development. 
  • Humility / Iterative / Rapid Deployment: This is not a job where 6 months will or can go by between releases, with major long-term bets. This is a job where dozens of small tests are expected to be run concurrently, and the app will get better with scientific testing, conducted in small increments.
    • The right product designer is not someone with a clear vision for the future who will see their roadmap through to completion no matter the cost, but rather someone who can rapidly respond to data points and user feedback with incremental wins, and translate ideas into testable design hypotheses, and find wins with small deployments, user segmentation, and delightful incremental improvements to the experience.
  • Efficiency: Able to produce significant output with minimal wasted effort.
  • Aggressiveness: Moves quickly and takes a forceful stand without being overly abrasive.
  • Coachable: Accepts feedback with humility and an open mind.

  • Participate in user experience research to understand consumer needs, opportunities and pain points to continually inform an iterative design and discovery process.
  • Collect and synthesize qualitative and quantitative research to inform and validate design decisions.

  • Facilitate meetings and brainstorming sessions that are organized and productive.
  • Create holistic design solutions that balance user needs and business requirements.
