Our Vision 🌏🏡

To help people with housing, anywhere.

Our Mission 💻✨

Building a safe, efficient and global rental marketplace for anyone looking for or renting out a place.

Our Core Values 💛

We Care. We Perform. We Evolve.

Your Impact 💥

As a Full Stack Growth Engineer for the Growth Development team, you are part of a newly founded team that is focused solely on experimenting around new business models across the customer journey. The team is designed to sit outside the regular product development structure of the company in order to speed up the development process. The focus will lay on minimum viable products to gather learnings around new concepts, to be later implemented in a sustainable way by feature teams.

The team currently exists out of a Growth Product Owner and a Full Stack Engineer. Designs are done within the team to keep a high velocity. Projects of the team range from validating adjacent products, business models and markets to experiments in the marketplace. If this makes you fired up and ready to go then you are the one we’re looking for!

Our Stack 🔧

In the frontend we are React lovers. We use Redux, CSS-in-JS, TypeScript, Node.js and all tools related to this stack. Our backend is powered by Go backed with a PostgreSQL database. We’re currently moving our backend to a service-oriented architecture (microservices). Our main infrastructure is in Google Cloud Platform. We've been using React, GraphQL and Go in production environments since the early days. A few years ago we started using Kubernetes, and nowadays all our new services run in the cluster.
