About Homebound

Homebound is a custom homebuilder that makes building your perfect home simple, transparent and human. We were born out of communities impacted by devastating wildfires, and we are the first homebuilder to provide everything homeowners need to rebuild — managing the entire process from start to finish and supporting homeowners every step of the way.

Job Description

Homebound’s mission is to create a better way to build homes, leveraging technology to make custom homebuilding simpler and more transparent. We’re delivering on that promise in places that have been impacted by natural disasters, and now we’re expanding to help families across the country build the perfect home.
 
With a better labor model, a more efficient building process, and a delightful homeowner experience, Homebound is transforming the single-family home market. The Homebound team includes in-house designers, architects, insurance experts, legal counsel, construction managers, and developers — all of whom have come together to improve custom homebuilding as a whole.
 
We are already helping hundreds of homeowners across California, Texas, and The Bahamas, and we are ready to scale to help hundreds more. Join us!
 
Role Overview
While creating new technology is one of the critical drivers of both cost advantage and customer experience, architectural design and process management also plays a key role in Homebound’s success. With architecture leading the early phases of a project, Homebound provides a common thread during pre-construction services coordinating design, construction documentation, and preparing for agency submittal. The role resides within Homebound’s Architecture & Design Department within the Construction Services team.
 
Homebound’s Architecture Coordinator is the central operation’s resource to address local market needs related to architects and draftspersons. For Homebound’s lot development practice, the Architecture Coordinator will select and modify plans for development on designated lots, coordinate outside architects and consultants during pre-construction, and support the architecture process. For Homebound’s consumer-facing projects, the Architecture Coordinator will work with the project lead to kick-off the architecture process including guidance on architect selections and customer intake.  They will not only have a keen eye for details in design, but also tracking changes in scope to keep the project within budget.  
 
While Homebound is not a traditional architecture firm, we expect the Architecture Coordinator’s experience to be aligned to a Project Architect or Project Manager level.
