Q&A With Hiring Manager

Shagane Barsegian Launey

Vice President, Product Design

Read more about Shagane

What will one learn in this position?

We nurture a highly creative environment that pushes you to learn and impact change out of the gate. We LOVE placing people in stretch roles and giving them a platform to grow. My favorite part about this role is the ownership of the entire user journey through product and brand, meaning your vision and output directly shape the company. We welcome folks from all walks of lives and family arrangements. Everyone is hands-on and is a one of a kind compliment to team. Last, it's really cool to work with data at scale across geographies, and pair with our domain experts in real-estate to understand industry drivers for housing and economic growth. 

How is design valued here?

Design is a core differentiator for our value in the marketplace. Our mission is to bring a radically new propositions to the industry status quo which often entails we have to think differently and tackle hard problems through teaming. Designers question the most fundamental assumptions and set the bar for casting a radically new vision for how we serve intelligent data and content platforms. We've had designers in key leadership roles, including at the exec level, from the very beginning. This has made design a core foundation of our company's DNA. This means that you'll never have to justify the importance of design. We genuinely care about people and value kindness in our everyday interactions. You'll be able to be yourself and feel valued.

With who and how will I work?

You'll closely work with all functions and leadership teams, specifically Rob Ignasiak, Lillian Spio, Hamin Balaporia, Michael Carlson, Ali Wolf, Lorry Linn, Andy Reid and Jeff Meyers. Working in small, high-impact teams, your work will touch initiatives across the nation. We have several offices across the country, with large teams based in OC, TX, DC & San Diego. We have been pioneers in remote workplaces and work with exceptional ease to scout the best talent supporting our employees in their vision for personal and professional life. We are looking to build an LA office in the near future that will staff design and marketing function. With the recent merger at HW & Meyers Research we are starting to build teams to slowly specialize more, for the next year, teams will still continue to be hybrid while working towards product and brand pods of mixed skill sets and more ownership.
