About Opendoor
Founded in 2014, Opendoor’s mission is to empower everyone with the freedom to move. We believe the traditional real estate process is broken and our goal is simple: build a digital, end-to-end customer experience that makes buying and selling a home simple, certain and fast. We have assembled a dedicated team with diverse backgrounds to support more than 100,000 homes bought and sold with us and the customers who have selected Opendoor as a trusted partner in handling one of their largest financial transactions. But the work is far from over as we continue to grow in new markets. Transforming the real estate industry takes tenacity and dedication. It takes problem solvers and builders. It takes a tight knit community of teammates doing the best work of their lives, pushing one another to transform a complicated process into a simple one. So where do you fit in? Whether you’re passionate about real estate, people, numbers, words, code, or strategy -- we have a place for you. Real estate is broken. Come help us fix it.

About the team

Outside of the consumer web/app experience, Opendoor hosts hundreds of web pages owned by different teams across the company. These web pages come in different flavors such as landing pages, blog posts, articles, investor relations pages, etc. We currently manage these pages using content management platforms such as Contentful and Wordpress.

We are looking for founding engineers for a new team that will be responsible for owning and driving the content management platform at Opendoor.

  • Build and support tools and automated processes that will provide intuitive and resilient solution that can accelerate teams
  • Own existing content platforms like Wordpress and Contentful and drive strategy around improving, maintaining and centralizing these platforms.
  • Partner with engineering, design and other teams to understand their pain points around content management, pilot proposed solutions, and encourage adoption of the platform.

Skills Needed:

  • Bachelor's or Master’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience.
  • 5+ years of experience (8+ years experience for Senior Software Engineer) delivering production quality software systems.
  • Deep experience building web applications using HTML, CSS, Javascript, Typescript and React.js
  • Experience developing backend systems using languages such as golang or python
