Job description

Are you intrigued by the thought of disrupting a trillion dollar industry through technology? At Opendoor, we’re on a mission to make it simple to buy and sell homes. The traditional process is broken, with an average home taking over 90 days to sell and costing thousands of dollars. We empower everyone with the freedom to move by making buying and selling a home stress-free and instant. We’ve built an exceptional team, seen strong growth, served over 80,000 customers (with an annual run rate of $5 billion), and raised $1.3 billion in funding. With Covid-19, the world is changing, and real estate is no exception. The coming years present a tremendous opportunity for innovation as we explore new frontiers and scale nationwide.

Your responsibilities will include:


  • Making user-facing products that will empower our customers with the freedom to move by making the home selling process simple
  • Rapidly iterating with customers, designers and product managers to product market fit and prioritize engineering work that will have the highest impact
  • Guiding the team in making intelligent and pragmatic technical trade-offs
  • Becoming a domain expert in real estate

We're looking for teammates who have:


  • 6+ years of track record in building and delivering production quality software systems 
  • Broad understanding of the whole engineering stack, with deep knowledge of frontend technologies

  • Focus on rapid delivery without sacrificing technical excellence
  • Care for modular, performant, and testable code
  • A sense of ownership and a passion for delighting customers through innovation and creative solutions to complex problems

  • Experience with GraphQL, Go, Python, or Ruby
  • Familiarity with AWS infrastructure, Docker and Kubernetes 
  • A passion for learning new technologies and different ways to solve problems
  • You love delighting customers with honest, transparent products and experiences
