Full-Stack Engineer

Los Angeles, California, United States

Description

Our Company

Open Listings is building the simplest and most affordable way to buy a home: e-commerce for real estate. We help tech savvy buyers shop for homes with expert online support, then save them a ton of money with a 50% commission refund. We're assisting hundreds of thousands of active buyers and transacting more than one home each day.

Today our software plugs into the existing real estate market via broker-quality data feeds and a network of local real estate agents. We have a web/app feed that helps users house hunt, back-of-house software that helps agents manage transactions, and custom support tools that allow our small team to assist thousands of active buyers through the process. We take a pragmatic, piecemeal approach to crafting software with heavy emphasis on testing, measurement, and iteration.

Our team comes from places like Amazon, Facebook, Huge, Redfin, startups — a small but ambitious group passionate about making this complex, hairy experience simple and thereby dramatically lowering the cost to buy.

The Role

The engineering team is currently two technical co-founders plus two engineers. This is a high responsibility, high autonomy position and you’ll be deploying code your first week, if not your first day. We subscribe heavily to the philosophy that the stack should be simple enough that a single engineer can build out, test, and deploy a small feature in a few days or deploy a small change in a few hours.

Our stack is rails, react, and mongodb with a heavy peppering of AWS goodies. The only tool we’re dogmatic about is simplicity. You should be comfortable developing the full critical path of a new web feature, but we’re most excited about front end web and/or native app expertise.
