Software Engineer — Full-Stack (Ruby on Rails + Backbone)

New York, New York   |   Full time

We are looking for a full-stack engineer to take part in all stages of the product development and deployment lifecycle. You'd be joining a small team of developers, helping to build out the team, process, & tech stack as we work on growing both our footprint and feature set! 


Projects we’ve tackled in the past:

  • Developed workflow solutions from the ground up that allow agents to create and edit apartment listings for some of the most valuable properties in New York City.

  • Developed an interface to allow users to export custom reports for their clients, allowing them to choose what information to include and how to display it.

  • Engineered an advanced search and filter system allowing users to find apartments and analyze the most accurate real-estate dataset in New York.

What you’ll work on:

  • Develop features and interfaces our customers use to explore and understand the real estate market, manage their listings, and engage with their clients

  • Question assumptions, experiment with new technologies, and find the development of a reliable and maintainable system just as exciting as we do

  • Write clear and efficient code

  • Take ownership over QA and release cycles of your work

What you’ll need to be successful:

  • BS or MS in Computer Science, related technical field, or equivalent experience

  • 2-6 years of experience collaborating on software development projects

  • We work mostly in Ruby and Coffeescript — though experience with one of those is desired, the ability to quickly learn new languages is just as valuable

  • Strong interpersonal communication skills

  • Past experience building complex software systems that have successfully been delivered to customers

  • Working knowledge of experience with AWS offerings, Elasticsearch, or PostgreSQL

  • Appreciation for (and the ability to create) simple and beautiful UI
