About Us 🏠

Our mission is to make buying a home across EMEA ridiculously easy. While we can trade stocks, order cars, or book short-term stays seamlessly online, the process of buying a home across the region remains slow, paper-driven, and inefficient. Nomad Homes is building an end-to-end experience to empower buyers to search, transact, and finance under one roof.

We have assembled the best team and investors to tackle this problem. Our founding team is former Uber, Addepar, PeerStreet, and Blackstone. We recently raised our $20 million Series A co-led by 01 Advisors, former Twitter executives Dick Costolo and Adam Bain, and the Spruce House Partnership, a $5 billion New York based investment partnership, along with former Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff, and Opendoor CEO Eric Wu.

We are growing fast. This is why we are looking for a Head of Engineering to work with the company’s Founders to lead the evolution of our product and technology strategy, along with building a growing team of software engineers. We want you to establish the company’s technical vision and lead all aspects of the company’s technological development. You should be highly motivated and an inquisitive Senior Engineer, with in-depth knowledge of the web ecosystem. You will work closely with the CPO and be part of the leadership team. You should have a desire to wear multiple hats, and thrive in a startup environment. The ideal candidate will have prior experience in a senior technical leadership position and deep expertise in building and shipping consumer facing products.

But it isn’t all technical, we also expect people management to be a key part of your job by providing leadership to the engineering function including 1:1 mentorship. You will work cross-functionally, partnering with product leadership to ensure clear alignment across engineering and product as well participate in long term roadmap planning across both product and engineering initiatives. Continue to invest in the recruiting, hiring and development of future and current engineers nurturing the Engineering culture to be it's very best.

Nomad is just at the beginning of our journey. Buying your home is one of the most personal and important financial decisions of your life. If you want to revolutionize one of the largest, most broken industries, then you have come to the right place.
