The Opportunity

Headquartered in Chicago with employees distributed across the country, we’re a fast-growing tech company that achieves our vision through our commitment to our Team, Customers, Product, and Continuous Improvement. It is our intention to create exceptional, high quality products that lead the Commercial Real Estate industry into the future and delight our customers.  

We are looking for someone to build our partnership ecosystem in concert with our VP of Partnerships. This work will closely align with consultant and greenfield development roles - you’ll be getting in very early in the life cycle of these projects, while working primarily within our legacy codebases (in theory, as we’re open to domain separation and service-based approaches). You’ll also be working with other development and product teams to ensure your work does not affect their roadmaps, and to help you understand how to properly interface with their applications and codebases.

How You’ll Contribute at Buildout

  • Build and launch excellent software by:
    • Understanding our customers and their needs
    • Engineering elegant and practical solutions
    • Iterating on and polishing your work to meet the standards for Buildout Quality
  • Work with the VP of Partnerships to understand our partnerships roadmap and what deliverables are expected 
  • Break these deliverables into smaller components and provide estimates for that work
  • Work cross functionally with other development and product teams to ensure you understand the work that needs to be done and get the help you need
  • Work directly with the VP of Engineering to ensure you understand the department and product visions and that the business teams are aligned with the work required to be successful
  • Set and achieve Buildout sponsored personal and professional goals

What You’ll Bring to Buildout 

    • Requirements
      • Extensive experience as a full-stack developer
      • Solid experience as a dev consultant and/or a cross-functional developer
  • Bonus: You’ve implemented new features or architectural changes on mature codebases during your consultant or cross-functional work
    • Extensive Ruby on Rails experience
      • We’re open to strong candidates with experience in other MVC web frameworks (Laravel, Spring, Django), as you’ll understand the patterns quickly
    • Solid React experience, as we leverage React extensively and a lot of your work will likely involve building a Rails backend and rich SPA with React
      • Vue.js experience is a nice substitute
    • Product-focused SaaS B2B/B2C web development product experience
      • Bonus: Commercial Real Estate, FinTech, or PropTech experience
    • An ability to move quickly in an an ambiguous environment
    • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills
    • Strong project management and organizational skills
    • An openness to interfacing with internal and external customers to better understand what they need
    • A wanting to learn-it-all personality (versus know-it-all) 

We know there are great candidates who won’t check all of these boxes, and we also know you might bring important skills that we haven’t considered. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.

We are based in Chicago, but this is a remote-friendly role open across most of the US.
The salary range is $130,000 - $170,000 based on experience.

Perks & Benefits 

We built a benefits program to match the quality of our team. This program includes:

  • Impactful insurance and benefit options, including covering 100% of employee health insurance premiums, FSA plan, STD, LTD, life insurance, and telemedicine 
  • Policies that support a healthy work/life balance, including generous PTO, paid parental leave, and give back days
  • Equipment to set you up for success including laptop, monitor, keyboard, and mouse
  • 401(k) with 4% company match and immediate vesting
  • Offices in Chicago and Austin for those who prefer an office setting, plus a monthly remote work reimbursement 
  • Challenging problems to solve with a committed and supportive team who are invested in your growth and development
  • A wonderfully quirky culture where you’re encouraged to bring your whole self to work

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
