Selling a home is complicated and expensive- Haus is fixing that. Haus helps homeowners sell their home with or without an agent by providing them with tools to navigate the process, a transaction platform to conduct the sale and the guidance of real estate experts when they need it. Our mission is to help people move forward by simplifying the home sale, bringing it online and lessening the cost.

We are

  • Early. We have a successful early home seller transaction product in market with active users, but we're still early in our journey. We were founded at and our small team (~7 people) operate out of the startup studio, Expa.
  • Ambitious. We are simplifying the home selling process within the giant residential real estate market. The typical process of selling a home is confusing, opaque, and complicated. We are fixing it by giving sellers and buyers transparency in the process and the information, tools and expertise they need to conduct a successful transaction for far less money.
  • Focused. We believe in ruthless prioritization. We are solving the hardest problems first and building from there.
  • Values-driven. The journey to meet our ambitious goals has a huge impact on our lives. We want it to be full of integrity, inclusion, courage and respect.

You are

  • Communicative. This role stands in between several functions on the team, so constant, clear and documented communication is essential. You are a great listener with whom others are eager to share their thoughts and ideas. You should be able to empathize with other functions while articulating the drivers behind product requirements and constraints.
  • A Strong Product Leader. You can lead without authority through your deep understanding of the varied user types and stakeholder groups. You appreciate the business goals and therefore understand and can articulate the tradeoffs in product decisions, including short- and long-term consequences.
  • A Research-driven Decision Maker. You have enough experience and good instincts to make decisions when no data is available. However, you believe in the importance of user research and will maintain the integrity of research-driven decision making. You may not already know everything about residential real estate but you want to become a subject-matter expert and will strive to do so.
  • A Company Builder. The product might change, the team structure might change, the market might change. We need someone who's committed to building a great company starting with driving great product management.
  • Technically Proficient. You may not be an engineer by training but you can understand the basic capabilities and constraints of our React & Node stack.
  • Experienced Shipping Software. You are an experienced PM, you have led a product development team at a startup, you have built software from initial concept through shipment and understand what it takes to do so.
