  • Work in tandem with a small cross-fuctional team every day to find elegant and simple solutions to complex problems

  • Work closely with other designers and front-end engineering to further develop our Design Language, and own visual QA for all new features going into production
  • Contribute to nurturing a design-centric culture at the company overall - design is truly key to our success
  • Work from our sunny and spacious WeWork space in downtown Manhattan
What we're looking for
  • You have at least 3-4 years of experience designing amazing digital products that solve real and challenging problems

  • You may have a background in UX or visual design, but you have experience from covering the entire design stack and you want to continue doing that
  • You feel comfortable with all aspects of a user-centered design process
  • You have an eye for immaculate and beautiful details, but you have enough experience to know when to move on
  • You love and insist on working with design in a systematic way
  • You are a self-starter and able to work in an agile startup environment with other disciplines in quick design loops
  • You always look for the simple and easy-to-use solutions, but you also have a heart beating for innovation and making an impact through creative problem-solving
  • You leave your ego at the front door, but you have enough integrity to stand up for designs/ideas when needed
  • You love both giving and receiving design feedback
  • You have experience designing for all kinds of devices and screens, and you are used to designing "everything first"

WHY CONSIDER WORKING AT HONEST BUILDINGS?
  • You get to work with a group of 80+ talented teammates with backgrounds from places like Tishman Speyer, McKinsey, Urban Compass, Goldman Sachs, Grovo, VTS, Facebook, Doberman, Equinox, Warby Parker, ChartBeat, CoStar, Cornell and Columbia.
  • We have raised over $47m from top investors including Thrive Capital. Some of our clients even decided to invest after using our product for a year. How’s that for market traction. #humblebrag
  • We remember to have lots of fun and we have nice startup perks, but we’re definitely playing to win. Our vibe is best described as laid back and trusting, but professional.
  • You’ll get to work on a fascinating and real problem in one of the largest sectors of the economy

    • Real estate and construction is one of the last big markets to be impacted by technological change and it is truly ripe for disruption. Old School is ready to go New School.
    • It’s a market massively larger than others you may know. We’re talking $8 trillion in Commercial Real Estate Construction vs. for instance $1.5 trillion in E-Commerce, or $100 billion in Transportation. It’s an amazing opportunity, grounded in real needs.
    • Buildings are an incredibly important asset that affect the way we all live, work, and play. You will have an opportunity to work closely with the decision makers and developers who shape the built environment we all experience every day, in cities all across North America.

An Insider's view of Honest Buildings

What are some social events your company does?

The Product Development team recently went on a NYC-themed scavenger hunt in Lower Manhattan. It was a really fun way to bond with my teammates over some friendly competition. Afterwards, we met up for food and drinks and to congratulate the winning team — which unfortunately I was not on! We also hold regular game nights & quarterly offsites!

Matt

Software Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

As we expand, we are implementing infrastructure and application based solutions to ensure all of our customers have a world class experience, guaranteeing our users across the globe can use our product in a fast and reliable manner. We're constantly researching security vulnerabilities and implementing best practices to fully protect the product.

Lalita

Site Reliability Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

After being a manager for a while, Honest Buildings gave me the ability to build out a department and team from scratch. I learned a ton about the different aspects of building a company and was supported at all times. As I continue moving forward, this skill set and experience will be a great foundation for my career.

Jeb

Business Development Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Every single person in Honest Buildings contributes to creating our company goals. We have a huge opportunity to put into place things that haven’t been created yet. If someone sees an opportunity and they want to work to fill that gap, we give them all the resources they need to help grow the company (and themselves) as much as possible.

Crystal

Chief Brand and Performance Officer

How does the company support your career growth?

The mentorship I’ve gained at Honest Buildings has championed me to speak up for what I want out of my career and the directions I want to go. HB has taught me how to advocate for myself, given me the courage needed to openly pitch ideas, interests and directions, and given me an environment where I feel supported if I chose to explore them.
