The Engineering team comprises 20 folks total, on three teams: Core Transaction Engineering, Growth Engineering and Platform Engineering. We appreciate diversity of thought and backgrounds. Core Transaction Engineering is responsible for building the features of our main product offering. What's also really cool is that we share office space with some of our real estate agents, giving us unparalleled access to feature ideas and feedback on product development.


    • As a member of the Core Transaction Engineering team, you will deliver small to medium projects and features to our 2 React applications -- one uses React 15 and the other uses React 17, and our Node.js backend. You will also write a full suite of automated tests with every new feature and bug fix to ensure production stability (unit, integration, e2e).
    • You will also be in charge of evaluating and articulating end-to-end designs for strengths and weaknesses (e.g., complexity, quality, scalability, security, performance, etc) as well as identifying tech debt and making recommendations on how to tackle it.
    • You will work with and help mentor other engineers, help in designing solutions to problems, and communicate with leadership about the needs of the team.
    • Lastly, you will uphold application performance, security, and best practices within the team by providing constructive feedback during code reviews.

    • We are looking for someone with at least 3 to 5 years of experience building web applications in production environments. You should be able to write clean, documented, and well-tested code.
    • Ideally, JavaScript is your main programming language. You have worked with React for the last 2 years. You should be comfortable with React 16/17, you should know the best practices and patterns (like hooks). You also have some kind of experience with Node.js.
    • You should also have experience with testing. At Side, we use Jest for unit tests and Cypress for End to End tests. You should have experience writing meaningful unit tests.
    • On top of being a great engineer, you must have a great team-player attitude.
    • It would be a plus if you have experience with GraphQL, Firebase, Typescript, security best practices, or accessibility but it is not required.

We offer competitive compensation packages which include meaningful equity.

We cover 100% of your health, dental, vision, life, and disability insurance for you and 70% for your dependents. We also cover up to $5,000 for adoption & fertility related expenses.
