  • Right now we're funding over $4.3 billion in home loans per month

  • We were listed to Forbes' FinTech
  • And #15 on the 2020 CNBC Disruptor 50
  • We've secured over $254 million from our investors to date
    Our company is made up of driven, passionate people who bring their unique backgrounds and perspectives to everything we do and we are committed to fostering diversity, multiculturalism, and inclusion. We see the perspectives that each person brings and a diverse workforce as essential for individual and collective success. We believe it's important to foster a company culture that encourages curiosity and passion-from employee resource groups and learning opportunities to team outings and community outreach.

    A Better Opportunity

    The future of work is being built at Better. We are looking for an experienced, hands-on leader to manage our Design & Construction Projects. As part of the Corporate Real Estate (CorpRE) team at Better, the Design and Construction Manager will work closely with internal and external partners to design and build Better offices around the globe.

    Responsibilities
    • Develop, maintain and update master schedules, project budgets and anticipated cost reports
    • Drive both internal and external stakeholders to meet deadlines as required per the master schedule
    • Issue RFPs, open project budgets, write SOWs, vet and level vendors, review change orders, review contract amendments, manage accruals, & approve invoices.
    • Establish systems and communication processes that ensure project participants are informed of project status, problems and required actions
    • Collaborate across functions to improve governance, cost management, document control, project tracking, and close-out processes
    • Work closely with the greater Better team, including Finance, Security, and IT, on projects to ensure alignment of scope and execution

      About You
      • 7+ years of experience working in Construction Management and/or Architectural Design with particular emphasis on leasehold improvements
      • Familiarity with current workplace trends, technologies, and vendors.
      • Proactive manager that is comfortable working in a dynamic and fast paced environment
      • Strong interpersonal and leadership skills ensuring coordination of architecture, MEP, AV, IT, networking and security systems.
      • Extensive knowledge of project management practices and construction documentation
      • Ability to develop internal tools for project dashboards, project management and budgets
      • Facility with project scheduling and project management software (Google Docs, Excel, Microsoft Project, Bluebeam Revu)
      • Ability to travel as needed post COVID-19

        The Better mission is rooted in values that drive us.
        • We do what's in the best interest of the consumer, not ourselves
        • We have growth mindsets, not fixed ones
        • We believe that success lies in execution, not credentials
        • We act like owners, not just employees
        • We work to find answers on our own, not wait for them to be given to us
        • We optimize for mission, not ego
          Our mission speaks for itself-we continue to outpace the industry at every turn. We've recently joined forces in partnership with Ally Bank, and our backers have helped build some of the most transformative tech and finance companies in history. Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Citigroup, Activant Capital, Ally Bank, and others have invested in our vision for what homeownership can be.

          Better Benefits & Compensation

          Our total rewards package consists of base salary, yearly cash bonus, equity and benefits. Additional employment-related benefits include:
          • Comprehensive healthcare, retirement, and voluntary benefits-including medical, dental, vision, savings accounts, 401k, and more
          • Personalized care and tools for realizing your mental health and wellness goals
          • Robust holistic wellbeing offerings where you can experience unlimited access to virtual fitness, meditation, yoga, cooking classes, homeschooling preparedness, physical therapy, and more
          • Unlimited time off (with manager approval)
          • 12 weeks of paid parental leave after only 90 days of employment, and 20 weeks after 24 months of service
          • Inclusive fertility benefits for you or your eligible dependents, regardless of participation in a Better medical plan

We do not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, religion or religious creed, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, marital status, family or parental status, disability, military or veteran status, age, or any other basis protected by law.
