Redfin seeks to hire a rock-star AJAX programmer for its downtown Seattle office, where we are developing the industry's most efficient and controversial online home buying and selling experience.
Redfin's commerce team is led by engineers from Amazon and Microsoft working to build the industry's first self-service application for all the stages of the home buying and selling process. This application is the core technology behind Redfin's ability to deliver better customer service at lower per transaction cost.
A history of driving ambitious projects to completion, preferably at a startup: we'll look for key contributions to teams working on strategic projects;
Raw coding skills: we'll look for a strong academic background in computer science or a related technical field; in the interview, you'll be given plenty of coding challenges so we can really see you think;
Lots of ideas: we'll ask you how you would improve Redfin's wizards for making offers and listing properties;
An instinct for building customer-driven applications, and a curious, analytical mind: so you can work with product management to fix problems that discourage would-be customers or hamper agent productivity. At a company our size, the engineers have to live and breathe the business problems faced by our customers and agents;
Bachelor's degree in Computer Science.
What you'll get from us:
* The chance to build a user experience from the ground up;
* The support and resources to learn always;
* A young, brilliant team with which to collaborate;
* An office in downtown Seattle, close to all the action;
* A commitment to your career, so you can grow with the company.
