Location: Bennett
Posted on: January 4, 2022

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.

Staff Software Engineer - Modus Team

If you could use technology to innovate an antiquated process, would you? What if you could write code that delivered a product and user experience that made one of the most exciting times in someone's life - buying a home - more delightful, and also empowered the people involved in the process? And, what if you could do those things as an early engineer at one of the most rapidly growing, Seattle-based companies where there is still a green field to develop in, interesting problems to solve, and impact to be made? Come join the Modus Team at Compass and contribute to this reality.

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. Our entrepreneurship principles bind us together and inform how we tackle the tremendous challenges ahead.

The Impact You Will Have

As a Staff Software Engineer on the Modus team at Compass, you will work on projects that impact the highest priorities of our technology roadmap and the business, all while collaborating cross-functionally with multiple teams. Staff engineers influence teams outside of their own organization and deliver results that move the needle at the organizational level and impact company-wide goals.

You will use your experience with modern cloud technologies to build products that improve every step of the real estate agent, buyer and seller experience at Compass. You will drive the automations that capture transactions in the Modus Platform ensuring a seamless and delightful real estate transaction experience. Your contributions will be key to supporting the day to day productivity of a real estate agent with web and mobile applications, while also supporting the growth of the world's most scalable brokerage as we expand into new markets.
