The apartment hunting process is broken. We believe the path to reinventing the apartment search experience begins with accurate, up-to-date, detailed apartment listings. We’re currently recruiting for a talented team member to be a part of our growing development team.
You will work closely with our customer success team to ensure the best customer experience as inventory integrations are one of the first steps in onboarding new customers. You and your team are responsible for maintaining and growing our product inventory through various feeds, APIs, and other sources. This role demands a great amount of curiosity, thoroughness and determination. We are relentless in figuring out what matters to our customers and then doing everything in our power to deliver it.
Why should you join us?
You’ll be joining an exceptional engineering team that values continuous improvement, automated testing and a culture that puts engineering craft at the center of our being.

- Work closely with our customer success team to ensure data accuracy and delivery of leads through APIs.
- Develop and maintain internal tools for automation.

- You can write code in at least one language to gather data from web services and use it for your own purposes.
- You enjoy explaining technical problems and issues succinctly and clearly.
- A never-ending desire to grow and learn.
