About Opendoor:  
Founded in 2014, Opendoor’s mission is to empower everyone with the freedom to move. We believe the traditional real estate process is broken and our goal is simple: build a digital, end-to-end customer experience that makes buying and selling a home simple, certain and fast. We have assembled a dedicated team with diverse backgrounds to support more than 100,000 homes bought and sold with us and the customers who have selected Opendoor as a trusted partner in handling one of their largest financial transactions. But the work is far from over as we continue to grow in new markets. Transforming the real estate industry takes tenacity and dedication. It takes problem solvers and builders. It takes a tight knit community of teammates doing the best work of their lives, pushing one another to transform a complicated process into a simple one. So where do you fit in? Whether you’re passionate about real estate, people, numbers, words, code, or strategy -- we have a place for you. Real estate is broken. Come help us fix it.

About the Role:
The Opendoor Marketing team is seeking an experienced and highly strategic marketer to lead our integrated Brand and Product Marketing teams. 

As the Head of Brand and Product Marketing, you’ll be a key member of the Opendoor leadership team charting the future of how people feel about and find value from Opendoor.

You will be responsible for conceiving and proposing marketing strategies, creative concepts, and execution plans for online and offline campaigns; and leading GTM for new product launches to drive Opendoor’s awareness and performance goals.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Drive the Brand & Product Marketing strategy to help Opendoor achieve its vision of drastically simplifying the real-estate transaction, redefine the housing market, and make buying and selling a home as easy as the tap of a button
  • Lead, develop and inspire a large team of marketers (10+) who partner with our product, design, research, and operations teams to build, launch, and scale valuable products for our customers
  • Deeply understand and articulate Opendoor’s target customer, fully immersing yourself in competitive products, trends, and opportunities within the real estate space
  • Lead Opendoor brand positioning and execution of breakthrough marketing campaigns that build brand awareness, affinity, and product adoption
  • Lead GTM strategy and product marketing activities including needs assessment, segmentation, positioning, and key product and launches for our consumer and business products
  • Partner closely with Research and Design to uncover new insights and consumer trends to drive the marketing plan forward and support the product roadmap.

  • 15+ years of experience building world-class, category-defining brands
  • Ability to hire, lead, and develop word-class teams
  • Ability to collaborate with cross-functional leadership to drive company strategy 
  • Outstanding communication skills, with the ability to guide, evaluate, and if necessary, redirect strategy
  • Strong grasp of the creative development process, leading strategy end to end from research to execution. Comfortable working with internal creative teams and external creative agencies
  • Ability to extract insights from multiple data sources, and make informed decisions that balance the art and science required to build lasting brands

An Insider's view of Opendoor

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

My team works with our sales and support operators. We manage our multiple telephony platforms, including our call center software. Last year, we replaced our old call center vendor solution with a new custom-built telephony platform. Building the unique features each team has been one of our central challenges for much of the past year.


Sr. Software Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Opendoor as an intern, responsible for small improvements to our home valuation model’s accuracy. Now, I am one of the leaders on our team - I’m responsible for setting team vision, overseeing systems design for other IC’s, and leading P0 initiatives such as a pricing workflow overhaul that we launched after COVID-19.


Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Analytical problem solving requires creativity too. I always encourage my team to consider all the tradeoffs between different options - what if you need to solve the problem in 1 day? How about 6 months? How about unlimited compute resources? We often come up with more creative and better solutions when we intentionally consider all options.
