Senior Software Engineer, Core Data Pipeline
Trulia - San Francisco, CA
Why join Trulia?
Engineering gets respect!

We use the phrase "we're a tech company that does Real Estate" to emphasize how important engineering is to the company. Engineering is the department that drives our apps, tools, data, and interfaces forward. This attitude comes not only from the Engineers, but from our CEO and our senior management team. They believe in us, and understand how critical engineering is to Trulia’s success.

We have awesome problems to solve:
The housing market provides a fantastic blend of problems. We need creative people to help us combine the data about every address in America with the soft side of helping people find a home that makes them feel safe, happy, and comfortable.

Stability is wonderful:
We're that rare company that holds the culture of its startup roots, while blending in the sanity of a regular work schedule with an emphasis on work/life/family balance. It’s like this because we worked hard to make it this way.

What you’ll work on:
The world of real estate data is huge and spans a multitude of data sources. We're looking for the right engineers to help build and improve core back-end data services, processing pipelines, storage platforms, and search infrastructure that feed our real estate site. Your work will surface daily on millions of pages across the site and provide millions of users with cleaner, more relevant, more local, information.

This position involves designing and building large-scale applications and systems to acquire, process, store, and make discoverable vast quantities of real estate information. You will tackle challenges around performance optimization, parallelization, and scalability that come with the data demands of a high-traffic, constantly growing, and public website.

You:
  • You have senior level development experience working at scale, preferably with Java.
  • You live to break down and solve complex problems by creating practical, maintainable, and scalable solutions
  • You have an interest in cutting-edge and open-source technologies and bring your own toolset and experience to the mix.
  • You're a great person that willingly collaborates, listens, and cares about your peers.
What you'll work with:
Our data core is rooted in Java, Solr/Lucene, Hadoop, and Cassandra with guest appearances by Python, Perl, Bash and friends.

How we work:
The engineering team is about a hundred people and the core data team is at the heart of our data driven business. We release often, with new features always under development and a strong focus on user experience. Part of the time is spent working on specific new features in collaboration with one or more of the other engineering teams and some time is spent working on strategic infrastructure shared by all.

Organizationally, we're pretty flat, though you'll have a mentor with whom you'll have weekly 1-on-1 meetings to review code, exchange ideas, and ensure we're doing everything we can for you to thrive in your role.

Perks:
  • "Innovation Week" every quarter
  • People you're happy to see every day
  • Aeron chairs
  • all IDE’s welcome
  • Stocked Kitchens and two kegerators
  • Penthouse roof deck
  • Great benefits (flexible time off, variety of health plans, 401k match)
