Why work at 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 other top management. They believe in us.

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.

Who are you:
  • You've got a couple years of web building experience
  • You're known for solving problems gracefully and creatively
  • You're a great person
  • You love technology
What you'll work with:
Our base web stack is LAMP, but that rides on top of Solr/Lucene, Hadoop, Memcache, Python, Couchbase, Open Street Maps, and more. On the front end of things we're a jQuery shop, but we use d3.js and Raphel.js for our charts. We're learning OOCSS and are folding SASS into our workflow as well. Our version control is in the process of moving from SVN to Git. If there's something that's a good idea for the team, we'll do our best to implement it.

How we work:
The engineering team is about eighty people, and we break into small teams of 2-4 to focus on specific projects. We release weekly, but new features are always under development and often span releases. Our local QA team writes automation tests and does hand testing of your features, working with you to ensure that only high quality code gets to production. 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.

Other Perks:
  • "Hack Week" every quarter
  • Stocked Kitchens (Breakfast, snacks, drinks, etc), and a kegerator
  • People you're happy to see every day
  • Great benefits (untracked time off, variety of health plans)
