About Compass

Compass is a real estate technology company with a powerful end-to-end platform that supports the entire buying and selling workflow. We deliver an incomparable experience to both agents and their clients all in service of the Compass mission: to help everyone find their place in the world.

Job Description

At Compass, we envision a world where the experience of selling or buying a home is simple and pleasant for everyone. Founded in 2012, Compass provides an end-to-end platform that empowers residential real estate agents to deliver exceptional service to their seller and buyer clients, all in service of our mission to help everyone find their place in the world.

Compass is building the first modern end-to-end real estate platform by integrating agents, buyers, and sellers through technology. Before Compass, no one has achieved the blend of the Natural Intelligence that hundreds of thousands of enterprising real estate agents bring to this market, with the Artificial Intelligence that cloud, mobile, and AI technologies enable.

As one of the fastest growing technology companies of our generation, in an industry larger than any other, we have an opportunity and obligation to build a world-class engineering team and the operating platform that will transform the real estate industry. In 2019 we tripled the size of our Product & Engineering team, and are searching for creative and inspiring colleagues at all levels of the engineering organization to join us as we continue to expand in 2020.

You are comfortable working on any part of the stack, from making a great interface to debugging our distributed infrastructure. Your code is architected for modularity and re-use.

  • Build, develop and scale our platform that powers real estate agents, buyers and sellers
  • Be a domain expert on real estate technology and products and an empathetic partner to our customers
  • Collaborate with product and design to move fast on creating solutions to business problems
  • Inspire, recruit and mentor your engineering colleagues
  • Operate in a scalable engineering culture that leverages modern principles of decoupled systems and automated CI/CD/testing/monitoring to drive efficiencies


What We Look For:

  • 6+ years experience writing database-driven web applications in Java, Go, Python, or other server-side language
  • 3+ years of experience with a modern Javascript framework (React preferred)
  • In-depth understanding and hands on experience with a relational database (Postgres preferred)
  • Familiarity with public cloud platforms (we use AWS), containerization, micro-services architecture, continuous integration and delivery
  • Understanding of and adherence to industry-standard best practices in software development and architecture
  • Experience with Google Maps API, Mapbox API, or equivalent is a plus
  • BS in CS or EE or equivalent (job experience, bootcamps, etc)
