Founding Product & Technical Director

A unique opportunity for a hungry, ambitious and entrepreneurial Technical and Product Leader.

Where are we?
We have the foundational team, venture funding and a big vision so we’re at the ideal stage to deliver a ground-breaking product that revolutionises the property industry. We are now looking for an ambitious leader to drive the delivery of this vision.

What’s the business?
Homecode at its MVP with some early market validation. This role provides an ambitious product / technical leader with the opportunity to own the next stages

The property sector has made a lot of noise in recent years but the only disruption has been within the property marketing phase of the process (think Zoopla and Purplebricks). The market is now screaming out for a solution to the real consumer problem – completing a transaction. Until now, no one has taken responsibility for the consumer experience, end to end; that’s our focus. We have a lot of the answers and see a time in the future where transferring home ownership is simple, quick and joyful.

We’re making a change which is not only good for consumers; it will also fundamentally drive progress across the industry and, we hope, this will ultimately impact the way we buy and sell homes in a way that also improves this country’s economy.

Who are we?
We’re a start-up team led by an ex-Google exec. We’re venture capital-backed by some of the most ambitious VCs in Europe (including Connect Ventures, Piton Capital and Accelerated Digital Ventures). We’re passionate about making a difference and we fundamentally believe that product and technology will positively transform this industry.

Who are you?
Overall, we are excited to speak with those with a technical / design and product experience. We’d love to work with someone who wants a seat at the leadership table, who’s entrepreneurial – perhaps having been a technical or product founder in the past.

  • You’ve been a key player in a start / scale up with a proven track record in owning product development.
  • You enjoy motivating and leading winning product teams and are an expert on getting things shipped, fast.
  • You’ll work on business decisions meaning you’ll think strategically about how we make smart, sometimes scrappy product decisions (in order to support rapid learning and iteration culture important at a start-up).
  • You’ll be proactive, results-driven, and self starting.
  • You are an excellent communicator who knows how to create clarity, focus and structure.
  • You love rolling with the dynamic pace of change of small start-ups.
  • You feel excited by the prospect of gathering new data and making rapid decisions.
  • You are inspired by digital processes and experiences that transform industries.
  • You’ve had experience of building new categories / launching new brands to market.
  • It will be your responsibility to create product and interfaces that serve both b2b & c audiences – previous experience working across these audiences is a big plus.
  • Homecode is smart with data. You’ll be passionate about finding, incorporating and making data accessible and interactable for stakeholders.
  • We’re a mobile-first company building in PWA for now – you’d influence our future platform direction here.
  • If you’ve bought or sold a home, you’ll likely know how painful it can be – so experience of this process is a big plus.
  • You have a genuine interest in changing this market.

Your position in the company
We’re looking for someone who wants to be a key contributor to the direction and roadmap of this business – this is an opportunity to get a firm seat at the leadership table.

Our Board and CEO believe in the power of product meaning product thinking has a huge place in this company’s future direction.

We are looking for passion and hunger (over experience alone). If you read the above and feel excited about tackling this problem; we want to hear from you.
