Our Vision 🌏🏡

To help people with housing, anywhere.

Our Mission 💻

Building a safe, efficient and global rental marketplace for anyone looking for or renting out a place.

Our Core Values 💛

We Care. We Perform. We Evolve.

Your Impact 💥

As we have reached the scaleup phase at HousingAnywhere, our rapid growth has brought on new challenges. We are rethinking the platform architecture to meet imminent growth needs. You will have the opportunities to bring in your ideas in the context of microservices, stream processing, API, security and data integrity.

At platform we are shaping the vision for the future architecture of HousingAnywhere. You will help other teams to build new features on top of our architecture, and make sure that concerns like reliability, security, privacy and performances are met.

We are pragmatic developers, and often we need to think out of the box to solve tricky technical challenges. Technology hypes inspire our work and give us ideas, but we realize that the context in which we build our solutions is what matters most. You will help us consider the challenges we face when adopting new technologies or techniques.

You will help your colleagues and your leaders to solve problems and move faster, as well as they will do with you.

 

Our mission as the platform team

As a Software Engineer for the Platform Team, you will be joining the team responsible for the backend logic of HousingAnywhere’s marketplace, and for standardizing the way our partners integrate with our platform.

Our team is here to provide HousingAnywhere with a scalable composable architecture that allows the organization to scale the business and teams on top of it.

We achieve our goals by:

  • developing the technical vision and standards on the platform that accommodate the needs of the housing rental market for the next 10 years
  • developing the standards for the exchange of information between systems in the accommodation rental market.

 

Let's work together on the following

  • We are rethinking the HousingAnywhere platform to service oriented architecture, by breaking a monolith in services. Our goal is to enable the organization to align independent teams around vertical domains.
  • We released version 1 of our RESTful public api. We are working on integrating new partners on our platform through our public api. The api will have to evolve to meet new needs and requirements from new partners.
  • We are rethinking our approach to CI, to simplify our suites of tests and to help the team to move to continuous delivery.
  • We already extracted frontend as a service from the backend monolith, but the code still leaves in one repository. We want to gain independence by extracting backend code from frontend code and have separate deployment pipelines.
  • We are working closely with the operations team to move our services to Kubernetes to standardise operations between teams.
  • We are creating an internal RFC to plan how to move towards an event driven architecture by introducing Kafka. We are researching impacts, costs and value that we get by getting into such a path.
