A Better opportunity

Help us hack a thirteen trillion dollar industry by building a product that will allow more people than the status quo to own a home and build wealth rather than rent for life.The engineering team is growing quickly and as an Engineering Manager, you'll be a big part of defining the technical direction and culture. We encourage proposals for projects off the beaten path, experimentation with different frameworks and libraries, and doing as you see fit to solve problems. 

As an Engineering Manager, you'll be growing, managing and mentoring a team of 5-7 software engineers. Projects that your team could own:

  • Build a system to evaluate thousands of rules and do a combinatorial search to find out what’s the best loan and how much can you afford
  • Work on our Kubernetes cluster that helps us deploy 50-100 times/day with no downtime
  • Writing API's to integrate with our partners
  • Improve our CI pipelines that run thousands of tests across hundreds of thousands of lines of code in a few minutes (with about 85% coverage)
  • Experiment with tools to do OCR on documents
  • Build a realtor recommendation engine

About You:

  • You have at least 1 year of experience as a tech lead or engineering manager 
  • You have experience mentoring junior engineers 
  • You've led technical initiatives with broad, organizational impact
  • You empower your team to make decisions and have a track record of enabling engineers to grow professionally 
  • You’re interested in solving complex problems that have a real world impact
  • You want to continue to be hands on (you'll spend 20-30% of your time writing code)

Better Team

  • The tech team is currently 200+ engineers and still growing quickly
  • Our CTO, Erik Bernhardsson, used to run the data and music recommendation team at Spotify. He is the open source author of a few popular projects like Annoy and Luigi and writes a blog about (mostly) data

Better technology

  • We ship code 50-100 times every day
  • Mostly Node.js and Python (3.6) for services
  • Ember.js, React, Typescript on the frontend
  • ES6 across the stack
  • Postgres for the database, Redshift for our Data warehouse
  • Kubernetes, for deployment and devops
  • AWS for infrastructure, using EC2, S3, CloudFront, Route53, and much more
