Zillow meets TikTok! We are building a new mobile app for browsing video listings of homes for sale - it’s fun and addictive like TikTok, but also practical and actionable like Zillow. We’re a Y Combinator funded startup backed by founders from Youtube, Twitch, Rotten Tomatoes, and more.
About the role
This is a unique opportunity to join as a leading member of the founding team. You will be instrumental in bringing our first mobile app to market and establishing the foundations for its future growth.
Work hand in hand with our technical CEO and the rest of the team to prioritize and execute on our product roadmap
Help establish and follow the long-term technical vision for our mobile app, while making the right calls on short-term compromises
Collaborate with UX design team on achievable designs that deliver a world class consumer experience for real estate
Help establish best practices (frameworks, testing, CI, code reviews, etc) to lay the foundation for a high performing technology team and its culture
You know what you're getting into
You understand the startup mindset. You're comfortable with uncertainty and love quick iterations to build, learn and refine. You're used to having few resources, but can be decisive, nimble and impactful. You understand that growth is life for a startup.
You have an ownership mentality and experience with that type of ownership over a core aspect of the product (product design, technical architecture, infra, key features, etc). You want more responsibility and accountability doesn't scare you.
You've worked effectively in a small and tight-knit team. You expect a lot from your teammates and lead by example.
You're comfortable with having little existing structure (CI/CD, refined roadmaps, etc), but you've built it all before yourself or know how it's done.
You're eager to drive impact with minimal oversight. Micro-management is the antithesis of what you're about and you expect the same of others around you.
You love product and you're eager to meet customers to develop an empathetic understanding of their problems to ensure we're building the right solutions.
