Mid/Senior UIUX Designer
Intrepid Homes - Greater Boston Area
Intrepid Homes is a newly formed startup based in Boston, MA. We are a technology-enabled trades company with mobile, web, and smart-glasses software applications that enable our professionals in the field and create amazing experiences for our customers. We are innovating rapidly within the professional home services industry – an industry that has barely changed in the last 100 years. Why? Because hiring tradespeople or contractors to do even simple tasks is a frustrating and time-consuming process for customers. There are many reasons for this, but one of the biggest is the shortage of skilled tradespeople in the U.S. — the result of long-term trends that have pushed entry-level workers away from the trades.
At Intrepid, we are focused on building the next generation of trades professionals and the software that will help make them successful. We believe more skilled workers, enabled by modern technology, will power a wholly new (and vastly improved) customer experience for all.
We’re looking for an experienced designer who is excited to be a key player in a rapidly growing company. Our company is designing and building a wide variety of internal products and consumer-facing applications that allows our team to work more efficiently and deliver the best customer experience. You’ll have the opportunity to work on web apps, native mobile apps, as well as exciting next-generation hardware such as AR glasses.
