Founding Product Designer

About us

We’re Dials, and we’re doing for buildings what Github did for code: making work visible, social, and fun. Our core mission is improving the physical condition of property – public schools, hotels, high-rise condos – and the lives of the janitors, volunteers, and others responsible for repair and maintenance.

This work is important. When done well, its dividends are comfort and safety; when ignored, its costs are collapsed buildings, even loss of life. Poor financial planning at Champlain Towers South caused one of the deadliest structural collapses in history last year, leaving more than 100 people dead.

Doing this well is a huge effort, incorporating aspects of computer vision and AI, financial planning, facilities management and large-scale Internet platform development. Our founding team includes 15+ years combined experience in Silicon Valley, one prior exit, and technical leadership at the first company to legally operate an 18-wheel semi truck on a public highway with nobody in the cab. We’ve assembled a great team of 30+ investors from Stripe, Square, Coinbase, and Heroku, and are a distributed-by-choice company with the founders in different cities.

We’re making product design our first hire because we see ourselves as similar to Square: lots of semi-technical users, served by an inexpensive, self-serve product. Product Design will be a key growth driver for the business and accordingly, this position offers a ton of visibility and room for growth.
