Interior Designer, Residential
Welcome is changing the way people buy real estate, and we want you to help build Welcome! We are a fast-growing, venture-backed startup building new homes that are purchased online, customized, and delivered in six months at an incredible value.
We are looking to hire a thoughtful, passionate, motivated Interior Designer who is looking for an atypical design position. There are a lot of firsts here and we are looking to do things differently, which means a lot of idea testing and getting out of our comfort zone. It also means shifting responsibilities as we scale. You have to be comfortable designing in multiple aesthetics, and have the ability to design the same space with multiple looks. Great product knowledge is another must; whether we are spec’ing the base home or looking for that next thoughtful upgrade it’s all about a deep and wide knowledge of products. And while this is a design position, we are a prop-tech startup, which means proficiency with technology (both packaged and proprietary), and the ability to communicate problems we are trying to solve in the physical world to our digital product team will be a necessity.
