VP, Product



United States · Remote
Posted on Thursday, July 4, 2024

Higharc is a VC-backed startup that is changing how new homes are designed and built. Join a founding team who’ve shipped products for Autodesk, Electronic Arts, Nike, and Apple. In 2024, we raised a $53M Series B fundraising round with support from top-notch venture capital firms and more than 18 strategic investors—industry leaders in construction, building products manufacturing, and distribution.

We're looking for a VP of Product to lead and scale our talented team of Product Managers and Designers in pioneering The Homebuilding Cloud — the only connected platform that revolutionizes how homebuilders design, sell, and build new homes and communities. Reporting directly to the CEO, you will be a member of the executive team and play a crucial role in strategizing, developing, and executing on our product vision and roadmap. In this high impact leadership role, you'll maintain the tight-knit dynamic between our Product and Engineering teams as we expand our product portfolio and grow our market share.

As the ideal candidate, you’ve led B2B SaaS products with a fair degree of complexity targeting mid-market and enterprise customers — if you have SMB experience as well, that’s great. You are commercially oriented and have seen substantial growth from $10-$100M ARR. You have an ability to both “do and direct” – you possess a strong desire to delve into the details and engage deeply with customers to develop your strategic point of view first-hand.

We’re looking for product excellence; experience in homebuilding or AEC is not required. If you're a seasoned product leader with a passion for driving innovation in home design and construction, we'd love to meet you.
