Description

About Opendoor
Are you intrigued by the thought of disrupting a trillion dollar industry through technology? At Opendoor, we are on a bold mission to empower everyone with the freedom to move by making buying, selling and trading-in a home stress-free and instant. In five years since we started, we have hired an exceptional team, seen strong growth, bought and sold over 20,000 homes (with an annual purchase run rate exceeding $3.8 billion), and raised $1.3 billion in funding. The coming years present a tremendous opportunity for innovation as we explore new frontiers and scale nationwide.
 
Today, our software plugs into the existing real estate market via broker-quality data feeds and a network of local real estate agents. We have a web/app feed that helps users house hunt, back-of-house software that helps agents manage transactions, and custom support tools that allow our small team to assist thousands of active buyers through the process. We take a pragmatic, piecemeal approach to crafting software with heavy emphasis on testing, measurement, and iteration.
 
The Role:
We’re seeking an exceptional product-focused engineer to join our Buyer Experience Engineering team and build our React Native consumer facing mobile app as well as React web apps.  You’ll work closely with design, product managers, and research to define what we should build, create quick prototypes for testing with users, and build high quality web apps which empower our customers to own their moving process.  Every engineer at Opendoor has an outsized impact, owning their projects from start to finish, reaching tens of thousands of customers every month and growing quickly with the company.

Your responsibilities will include:

    • Make user-facing products that will be useful to our customers
    • Build web and mobile apps from scratch, as well as develop existing applications
    • Guide the team in making intelligent and pragmatic technical trade-offs
    • Design and implement user-facing products
    • Apply deep understanding of web technologies to reason about engineering / design tradeoffs
    • Become a domain expert in real estate

We’re looking for teammates who have:

    • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience
    • Expert grasp of React and the concepts behind it
    • Excitement about a high quality component library, developing with Storybook, and testing with Enzyme / Jest
    • Expert knowledge of ES6, Redux, TypeScript, and CSS
    • Passion and an understanding of the nuances of web technologies
    • Care about building an app right – with attention to pixels, accessibility, and clean, well-tested code
    • Ability to write high-performance, reusable code for UI components and a strong sense for good UI/UX
    • Experience building large, modular and maintainable JavaScript code bases

Bonus points:

    • Expertise in React Native or native development
    • Prowess in best practices for accessibility and internationalization 
    • Love diving in and explaining Higher-Order Components or the intricacies of reconciliation to a new teammate
    • You love delighting customers with honest, transparent products and experiences
