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 team that drives our apps, tools, data, and interfaces forward. This attitude comes not only from engineers, but from our CEO and our senior management team. They believe in the technologies we design and build.
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 on every address in America while making it easier for people find a home that makes them feel safe, happy, and comfortable.
