About the Home Guidance Team
The Home Guidance team guides a user through the home care journey by helping them understand their home and easily identify and complete their next important projects. We give customers peace of mind through an all-in-one home care experience. Successfully doing so will lead to deeper customer relationships, higher value projects and more jobs for our pros. We are building a home profile system to have a deep understanding of customers' homes and use it to power recommendations on what projects should be prioritized. We are also working on major UX improvements to elevate the home and guide homeowners to where they should go.
Challenges

You'd be working on a zero to one team where we focus on shipping new features, learn quickly from those and continue to iterate and improve. We are also investing in infrastructure needed in order to learn about our user's home and their interest. You'd also have a chance to work on improving our recommendation systems so every home project we recommend is highly relevant to our customers.

        Thumbtack is a virtual-first company, meaning you can live and work from any one of our approved locations across the United States, Ontario or the Philippines. When it is safe to gather, we will begin to host in-person events on a regular basis. Remote employees will be expected to travel occasionally for these events to a Thumbtack library or offsite team-building location. In cities with 5+ employees, we are establishing local communities, where employees can gather for local events. Additionally, employees in the San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Toronto and Manila areas will have opt-in access to communal workspace at one of our Thumbtack libraries. We always prioritize the health and safety of our employees. Currently, participation in these events and Thumbtack library use are optional. Both require employees to be fully vaccinated.
