HOVER is based on a technology platform that we originally created for the U.S. Military Special Operations. In 2012 we began delivering three-dimensional maps derived from aerial photographs so the military troops could get a better idea of what they were walking into. We've now migrated that technology into a solution that works on a standard smartphone, and we're using it to transform a market that has been notoriously difficult to change: home improvement.

Job Description

HOVER uses patented technology making it possible for anyone with a smartphone camera to create an interactive 3D model, complete with detailed measurements and powerful design features. The data produced is extremely valuable as it generates a single source of truth for the physical world allowing for more veracity throughout the home improvement and insurance processes. We’ve found an incredibly strong product-market fit across exterior home improvement, insurance, and financial services. What's the secret sauce? Computer vision and an exceptional culture.

With our team of investors, including Google Ventures and Menlo Ventures, HOVER is committed to continuing our success and facilitating growth. We believe there is strength in diversity so we hire skilled and passionate people from a wide variety of backgrounds.
