At Qualia, we’ve built a new class of real estate technology that simplifies home buying and selling into an easy, understandable, and secure process. Our products bring together users from across the real estate ecosystem—homebuyers and sellers, lenders, title and escrow agents, and real estate agents—onto a single shared platform, providing greater clarity and transparency to real estate transactions. Today, millions of consumers use Qualia to close on homes every year.

We are hiring an entrepreneurial Engineering Manager interested in being a part of our rapidly growing engineering team. Our engineers are conscientious hackers who like teamwork but are also comfortable with independent projects. Our engineering team releases new software every week, moves at a fast pace, and works directly with our design and customer-facing teams to imagine and build the new experiences our customers love. Because of that, you’ll get a rewarding variety of projects to work on.

As an Engineering Manager, you've been in the industry for a while and have a proven track record of success. You are comfortable leading complex, high-liability projects. You have experience making key architectural decisions and performing the research to back up those decisions. You've dealt with the consequences of your mistakes, and you know how to fight fires if necessary. You enjoy mentoring and providing support. You've thrived in different environments and realize that each team is unique.

YOUR DAY TO DAY

  • You will lead one of our core engineering teams which is key to Qualia’s continued growth

YOUR BACKGROUND THAT LIKELY MAKES YOU A MATCH

  • 3-5 years of experience as a full-stack engineer on a customer-facing product, 2+ years leading an engineering team for a product that has significant impact on the company’s growth
  • Strong hands-on technical leadership, people management, project management and communication skills
  • Keen product sense, attention to detail, and passion for the impact of the software you build
  • Background in enterprise software and fintech preferred

THE TECH STACK YOU'LL USE

  • Meteor / Semantic UI / MongoDB
  • Microservice architecture / Docker / AWS

  • GitHub for version control and pull requests

WHY QUALIA

  • Our flat company structure empowers engineers to make product decisions
  • We have a collaborative culture where engineers mentor each other

ABOUT OUR ENGINEERING TEAM

  • Our engineering team demonstrates and values technical thought leadership. 
  • Qualia hosts the official Meteor Developer’s Night in our San Francisco HQ, which is the largest gathering of Meteor developers in the world. The event features talks on Meteor and Javascript development generally, often including talks from Qualia team members.
  • Qualia’s Head of Design, Jack Lukic, is the creator of Semantic UI, one of the most popular open-source design frameworks. Qualia engineers learn this framework, and design patterns more generally, directly from the creator of the framework our front end is built on! Very few companies can say that. 
  • As part of our focus on continual learning and development, a Qualia team member gives an educational talk on something they’re interested in every Thursday to the entire engineering and product team. Topics range from Kolmogorov complexity theory to the definition of art, to models of existential risk.
