Do you want to work for a design-driven company where you can help millions of homeowners build wealth with their home? And be a part of a team where you have ownership to drive design decisions and see the immediate impact of your work?

Homebot is a Denver-based, fast-growing startup revolutionizing how homeowners build personal wealth with the single largest asset they’ll ever own -- their home. We sell our SaaS platform services to real estate agents, lenders and loan servicers as a way to keep their clients engaged long after the sale is complete. Our customers love us and we love them! 

We are scaling rapidly and need a passionate UX Designer to dig in, learn what our customers’ and consumers’ needs are, and own the design process from personas to designs and dev handoff! Homebot is looking for a highly collaborative UX/UI Designer that has a passion for taking complex problems and distilling them down into a beautiful, simple experience for the user.

If this opportunity gets you pumped - perfect! Apply below and we look forward to speaking with you very soon! (We also read cover letters so take a moment to tell us what makes you a great fit for us!)

This is a full-time position based in our Denver, CO office.

  • Work with product and engineering teams to break down projects into a work plan - define scope, phases, and groom stories as a team

  • Engage in usability testing, communicate findings, and incorporate key takeaways into designs
  • Leverage modern web technologies and patterns to create an enticing and innovative consumer experience
  • Make understanding end user goals and needs a constant priority
  • Expand and maintain our design system: define our use of color, components, interaction patterns, animations, and state changes within multiple applications
  • Create tools including interview guides, focus group materials, and prototypes to gather feedback throughout the design process
  • Communicate clearly to define, discuss, and present your work to internal stakeholders, and feel comfortable receiving and weighing in feedback
  • Escalate product issues when appropriate; maintains a sense of "product ownership" to see all issues through to successful resolution
  • Have a healthy understanding of the software development process and the role an agile designer plays. Be confident pairing with engineers and making decisions together in real-time

  • Data visualization or fintech projects in portfolio
  • Knowledge of real estate or lending industries
  • Experience designing for Android or iOS apps

When applying for this position, please provide a link to your portfolio if possible.

What we’re interested in: your design process, techniques and methodologies; not just polished or final visuals. We love to see sketches, workflows, annotated wireframes, sitemaps, user journeys, task analysis, brainstorms and other artifacts of how you tackled the design challenge from start to finish.

More about Homebot

Problem we’re solving:

The US homeownership market is the largest asset class in the world at $30 trillion but is essentially an “unmanaged” asset that causes homeowners to leave billions of dollars on the table every year. At the same time, loan officers and real estate agents spent $20 billion a year on desperate attempts to maintain mindshare and loyalty with their past clients in hopes of gaining more repeat and referral business.

Our solution:

Homebot is a client-for-life portal that maximizes repeat and referral business for lenders by empowering consumers to build wealth through homeownership. The award-winning client portal delivers personalized, actionable intelligence throughout the entire homeownership lifecycle to every client and prospect. With an average 50% monthly engagement rate, Homebot ensures lenders and agents remain the trusted advisors that consumers rely on to make informed decisions about the largest asset they may ever own, their home. 

It’s definitely a game-changer and we are truly making an impact. Having launched in 2016, we're over 50 Homebotters strong and expect to continue that growth in 2020. We moved into some pretty sweet new digs in July 2019, and would love to have you come join us for some good times!

An Insider's view of Homebot

What are some social events your company does?

In addition to spontaneous happy hours, we’ve gotten a suite to watch the Rockies play, whipped up on the execs bowling, and soaked up the sun together at a pool party. This summer, we’re planning on camping in the foothills while listening one of our engineer’s band play sweet cover tunes.

What does your typical day look like?

As the Customer Support Manager I lead the team that works closest with our clients! We handle all emails, chats, & phone calls on a daily basis. I focus on ensuring that the team & our clients have the right tools to be successful, creating processes that make life easier for all, & assisting in the innovation that makes Homebot so great!

Customer Support Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has grown exponentially, in the time I've been at Homebot. While the notion of working for a startup may seem daunting, the ability to "wear multiple hats" has provided me the opportunity to not only expand my knowledge of multiple facets of a business, but to also become well-versed in all the aspects of my personal job category.

Cameron

Finance Manager

What is your vision for the company?

83% of the average homeowner's wealth at retirement comes from home equity. We want consumers to be empowered to build wealth through homeownership. We do this by providing personalized intelligence for all home financing/buying/selling/renting decisions. Our plan is not to help homeowners feel rich but to help them be rich.

Ernie Graham

CEO

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We work within the real estate space so we encounter an exorbitant amount of data that needs to be processed such as home valuations, loan data, and parsing user inputted addresses. Efficiently taking an address and turn that into our final product takes a many steps with failure cases along the way can create a tough challenge!
