Orchard is radically simplifying the way people buy and sell their homes. For the average American, the home purchase and sale process takes months, creates anxiety, and is filled with uncertainty and hassle. Orchard has reimagined the end-to-end experience of buying and selling, from innovative home search tools to find the perfect home to the ability to buy a new home before selling your current one. Orchard customers manage the entire experience through a personalized online dashboard, while also getting the support of best-in-class Orchard real estate agents.
Headquartered in New York City and with offices throughout Texas, Colorado, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia, Orchard has over 300 employees and growing. We have raised over $130 million in equity financing from top-tier investors including Revolution, Firstmark, Accomplice, Navitas and Juxtapose. Our investors have also backed the likes of Pinterest, AirBnb, Shopify and Sweetgreen. Orchard is proud to be recognized as part of Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work.
Role and Responsibilities
This is an opportunity to shape the infrastructure for our venture-funded business focused on making the home selling experience easier for our customers. If you want to be a leader in scaling a new, innovative business this is the right role for you.
The ideal candidate will have 5+ years of experience building and managing cloud infrastructures. You will be responsible for the evolution of our AWS-based infrastructure to support the growing engineering team. We have been managing our infrastructure as a shared engineering responsibility for the last 3 years and are ready to bring dedicated cloud infrastructure best practices and security to the table. Someone who has opinions about the best practices and has built and worked with cloud systems which are secure by default will be successful in this role.
In this role you will:
- Plan and set goals to evolve the infrastructure to support the growing engineering team while keeping best practices and security in mind.
- Work with engineering to build the tools and processes needed to maintain our continuous delivery culture and enable the teams to own their solutions into production
- Be a partner to the security and legal teams as the organization grows
- 5+ years of industry experience
- Strong knowledge of the AWS ecosystem
- Experience applying automation to the cloud infrastructure using modern infrastructure tooling: infrastructure as code, configuration management, CI pipelines, package managers
- Strong knowledge of Linux system architecture as well as a firm grasp of the linux CLI and shell scripting
- Excellent written and oral communication skills
- Results orientation with a high motor and an incredible attention to detail; able to drive projects from planning to completion with limited oversight
- Demonstrated communication and interpersonal skills to work across diverse stakeholders and cross-functional teams
- A low ego and can-do attitude; willingness to admit mistakes and work to remedy them
- Flexibility to prioritize deliverables and re-prioritize them at a moment’s notice
- Comfort operating in an ambiguous environment where there's not a set playbook on how to solve each problem
