Website Periscope Homes

Periscope is founded on the simple idea that adding beautiful living space should be easy. Residential construction is neither keeping pace with demand nor improving productivity, so we’re reimagining the process. Applying product design and manufacturing know-how from our time at Tesla, our mission is to give people the superpower to create inspired living space with no hassle. Our market entry is the growing California ADU (accessory dwelling unit) market, where small and beautiful is big and valuable.

Great candidates appreciate a dynamic environment and are able to easily adapt to frequent project changes.  They appreciate an environment where individuals carry tremendous responsibility and where superior work is encouraged, noticed, and rewarded.  Successful candidates will be able to work effectively as a part of a team or independently with minimal oversight.  They will also have a willingness to work on a variety of building topologies and architectural styles.
