Construction Project Manager



Austin, TX, USA
Posted on Monday, June 3, 2024

Homemade is an ATX-based, early-stage business that is democratizing home flipping by giving customers institutional-grade capabilities to flip homes without rolling up their sleeves. Today, the $230B annual flip economy is driven by brute force: trial and error, billions of dollars wasted, and a lot of mom and pop flippers. The Founders of Homemade, Lincoln Edwards, Lauren Ahrens, and Claire Burke have leveraged content, data, and strategic capital to productize the flip process. Lincoln and Lauren have proven the positive influence that flip content has on top of funnel acquisition (via Austin Flipsters).
