Opendoor-Los Angeles, CA -

Posted a month ago

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.

The Role
As a backend engineer on the Buyer Experience team, you’ll help us build new backends to support customer facing features in the Opendoor mobile app, and to launch our products in more markets nationwide.
You’ll have the opportunity to work with a variety of backend technologies, including job queueing systems in Ruby, Airflow, Kafka, GraphQL, and AWS. Your work will need to handle scale on day one, reaching hundreds of thousands of users each month and with exacting standards for performance and stability.


We’re looking for teammates who have:

  • B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • 3+ years of industry experience
  • Experience working with Go, Ruby (Sidekiq), node.js, or Python
  • A preference for test-driven, agile approaches and a bias towards action
  • Optimism about future technology and automation
  • Good references from past colleagues


Bonus Points:

  • Experience with mobile development
  • You love delighting customers with honest, transparent products and experiences
  • Domain knowledge and/or interest in real estate
