Senior Front End Engineer - Collections

New York City

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.

About The Role:

As a Frontend Engineer on the Collections team, you will use your skills to build a crucial part of the agent-consumer workflow. Using Collections, an agent and consumer can keep their communications organized in one place, alongside the listings they're considering. We build the pipeline that moves a customer past their initial search all the way through to the listing they consider "the one". Our team integrates with the highest number of other products, such as Tours, Search, Marketing Center and more. You will be working on one of most highly utilized and visible products in our company.

You are a developer who is passionate about setting a high bar for quality when it comes to user interaction. You can place yourself in the shoes of the end-user and advocate for their best interest.

  • Collaborate with product and design to move fast on creating solutions to business problems.
