Product Designer

July 10, 2024

Homerun is the people-first hiring tool designed for SMBs.

We believe SMBs are some of the most interesting and meaningful places to work. What they lack in size, they make up for with creativity, purpose and culture. For these companies, we've built a modern hiring tool that reflects their uniqueness.

Our product lets teams keep track of candidates, review applications, keep candidates in the loop, and plan interviews all from one organised app.

Homerun also helps companies showcase their unique brand & culture with customisable job posts, career pages and candidate-friendly application forms.

About The Product Team โšพ๏ธ

Our goal is to create a top-notch hiring tool designed especially for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Most hiring tools out there are made for expert recruiters, but in SMBs, it's usually the hiring managers and interviewers who use them. We believe these users deserve a tool that's just as easy, modern, and fun to use as the other apps they work with every day. Since hiring isn't their main job, our tool guides them through the messy and complicated hiring process, even if they're not experts.

We're a small team: 8 engineers, 1 product designer, and 1 product manager. We work in 6-weeks cycles, inspired by Basecamp's Shape Up method, and take time to understand our customers. We do this through regular customer calls and visits, working closely with our customer support team, and utilise a beta community for valuable input. As a product designer at Homerun you are a full and proactive participant of the product development process.
