Wayhome: The Mission
At Wayhome we are reinventing homeownership by co-investing with people who haven't been able to buy a home yet. We’re a small team of Engineers, Property Specialists, Data Scientists and Creatives, who are addressing one of the biggest and most life-changing problems our customers have: how they can get the security and freedom of homeownership for their families and for themselves.
We are looking for someone to work within our 12 person Product Development team. This role will be primarily leading the development of the products used by our customers throughout their Wayhome journey. More specifically, you’ll evolve the existing systems to help a customer find a home they love, and then manage their experience once they’re in their home; and develop the bridge between those 2 parts of the journey to ease their buying experience!
You will also work on other parts of the Wayhome product, contribute to business strategy, and help grow the company’s Product Management practice and processes. As we grow our team in future you will also have line management opportunities.
The Product Development team is a mixed bunch of developers and product managers based in Central London, though of course we are all working from home at the moment and expect that to continue for the foreseeable future.
We understand that there isn’t a one size fits all solution to the way we work; what works today will not necessarily work tomorrow, especially as we expand the team. We value rapid cycles of TEST, LEARN and ADAPT. All of our product tasks are specified and prioritised via a rigorous challenge process that reflects the following about how Product works at Wayhome:
- We know your time is valuable - so we aim to work only on business-critical developments.
- We are focussed on smashing our OKRs - to help aspiring homeowners find their dream homes at scale.
- We believe diverse inputs from various business units and individuals of differing seniority lead to the best product outcomes - if managed by a strong leader.
We value empathy, taking a pragmatic approach to our work and take delight in helping each other out. On occasion we have the corgis Alfie and Napster giving their input, although their barking outweighs their wireframing! We have a varied mix of personalities and interests (from video games to pottery to blacksmithing), and value the human beings behind the job title.
