About the job

We use technology to offer custom ADU design and construction at a fraction of the cost and timeline of traditional architecture. We are always learning: we want to keep pushing the boundaries of our ADU expertise while consistently providing a top-tier design experience to our clients.

In this Design Lead role at Cottage, you’ll own the start-to-end Homeowner design experience. You will drive the continuous improvement of design deliverables and associated tooling, helping bridge our proprietary products with the design process. The ideal candidate will level-up Cottage’s ability to convey relevant design information, drive our clients towards decisions in a balance of choice and ease, while allowing for key ‘magic moments’ along the way. Our goal is to create a best-in-class Homeowner design journey that is immersive, accessible, and enjoyable.

You will work closely with the Growth & Operations teams to ensure all homeowner-facing materials showcase a transparency-first approach and a high caliber of design quality. You will also grow to collaborate with the Product & Engineering teams to establish a consistent client experience from their first website visit through Schematic Design, Design Development, Permitting, and Finishes Selection. You will lead the development of our design collateral throughout the Homeowner journey, bring in a strong command of architectural accuracy, and ensure timely coordination with relevant teams each step of the way.

We’re an early stage startup and looking for someone who’s excited to roll up their sleeves and step out of their comfort zone to offer a best-in-category homeowner experience. This is a unique opportunity to be part of the early team at Cottage, reporting to the Design Manager and working cross-functionally. You’ll gain experience in a tech-empowered design practice unlike any other, and learn from people with a broad range of backgrounds (read: non-architects!)
