We have three cross functional product development squads: Growth, Scope and FX.
The Growth Squad focuses on the initial experience homeowners have with our platform – from helping them visualize their new spaces to scheduling their initial calls with Block Project Planners.
The Scope Squad focuses on the interdependencies between labor, materials and costs. They help our platform get smarter and better understand the complexities and intricacies of a renovation to keep things simple for homeowners and contractors. They also build tools to help with supply chain and logistics challenges to ensure the right materials arrive on the jobs sites at the right time.
The Efficiency and Experience Squad – FX for short – focuses on the lead-up to construction, schedule and task management, and communication between homeowners and contractors.
