We’re looking for a motivated Product Associate to assist in the technical documentation of our building products through high-quality architectural drawings, precise detailing, 3d models, and specifications.  You will report directly to and work hand-in-hand with our Senior Product Manager to maintain our existing building products and develop exciting new building products.  From designing and creating construction documents for new products, to iteratively improving our existing products, to coordinating with the factory or on-site construction crews, it’s almost guaranteed that no two workdays will be the same. Be a part of a company that can finally provide high-quality architecture to the masses.

This is an amazing chance to be an early hire at a startup that’s rapidly growing and defining a new multi-billion-dollar category. And, we’ve got an inspiring, brilliant and inclusive team.

  • Produce and answer RFIs
  • Research and specify FF&E, including identifying like-alternatives during supply chain disruptions
  • Work closely with existing and future Abodu customers to understand how they use our products and to identify unmet needs and gaps
  • Occasionally provide support to our Sales, Fulfillment, and Warranty departments to answer any building product questions
  • Assistance with special projects outside of day-to-day responsibilities


  • 5+ years of architecture experience, including extensive experience developing CDs and performing CA
  • Strong portfolio of built work that demonstrates refined design and detailing skills
  • Very strong analytical and organizational skills
  • Ability and desire to be hands-on until we need to grow the team
  • Self-starter who takes initiative and responsibility for their work and actions of their team
