New York, New York   |   Full time

Perchwell is a market intelligence, search and collaboration solution for real estate professionals and their clients. As a complete workflow solution, Perchwell allows agents to provide differentiated service to clients more efficiently and grow their businesses as a result. We're built on a comprehensive database of real estate data constructed from myriad public and private sources. Together, these data provide a rich foundation for evaluating the market and help professionals develop hyper-personalized, actionable insights in seconds.


We are looking for a backend engineer to expand and maintain our APIs and web services. 


You will:

  • Design and build the infrastructure necessary to deliver real estate data to syndicators and customer websites
  • Question assumptions, experiment with new technologies, and find the development of a reliable and maintainable system just as exciting as we do
  • Work with integration teams and developers to adapt our services to meet their backend needs
  • Write clear, efficient, and maintainable code
  • Take ownership over QA and release cycles of your work



Minimum Qualifications:

  • BS or MS in Computer Science, related technical field, or equivalent experience
  • Experience collaborating on software development projects
  • We work mostly in Ruby and Go — though experience with either language is desired, the ability to quickly learn new languages is just as valuable
  • Strong interpersonal communication skills



Preferred Qualifications:

  • 2+ years of experience in software development
  • Past experience building complex software systems that have been successfully delivered to customers
  • Working knowledge of or experience with AWS offerings, Elasticsearch, or PostgreSQL
