A bit about us:

We help connect our customers to real estate agents and help them save money in the process (sellers get a discount on commission, buyers get a rebate on their home purchase).

We are now seeking a Senior Platform Engineer with a background developing customer-facing SaaS and web-based applications experience, primarily with Python (Django) and React.js. In this role, you'll do a lot of paired-programming with several members of our team the first few months in order to familiarize you with our existing systems and to build relationships with the rest of the Engineering team. You either should enjoy it or at least be willing to do paired-programming, otherwise this isn't the right opportunity for you. They should be well-versed with server-side technologies such as RESTful APIs, Amazon Web Services, CI/CD tools, and databases (PostgreSQL/NoSQL).

Lastly, this is a great time to get in on ground floor working alongside the Founders, CTO, and a key hire in shaping the way the organization's future goes. If this sounds like you, please apply now!

Why join us?

  • Marquee Product!
  • Accelerated Career Growth!
